Christmas Gift Wrap

 This year we didn't buy anything new to wrap our gifts.  I used Jeremy's old plans from work as wrapping paper and added fabric, felt, twine, and stamps that I already had to embellish them and add color.
I'm not showing a close up of the gift tags yet because I don't want to ruin the surprise for family.  I will post a close up after Christmas.
I found the tutorial for the felt pom poms here.
It feels so good to have this finished!


  1. so cute and what a FABULOUS idea! i'm headed to our goodwill tonight to pick up some old books/atlases to wrap with. i love the sweetness of it and it's much, much cheaper than wrapping paper:) merry christmas, dear!

  2. these look amazing!! i absolutely love the plans as wrapping paper - such a personal, unique touch, and they create such pretty patterns!

  3. Love them! You are so creative! Merry Christmas my friend!

  4. What a wonderfully, unique way to wrap! I love the idea of re-using instead of buying. I wish that I wrapped as beautifully as you...I need to find some elves to teach me the art of gift wrapping. ;) Ha.

    Merry Christmas!!!!!

  5. This is sooo cool and creative!! Love it!!


  6. I love that you reused the old plans! Awesome! I try to do that with other things I have just lying around the house, not going anywhere soon!

  7. Your wrapping is wonderful! The floral bow gives it a nice touch :)

  8. I will probably just use newspaper, although yours look so nice! I'd be surprised if my one brother wrapped any of his gifts at all, haha. "Statement" wrapping?


I love to hear from you, and will do my best to respond to your comment! Please no spam :)
