It’s a wrap

Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday.  The twinkling lights, the vibrant colors, the smell of fireplaces and pine needles, oh it’s just magical.  So, this year I decided to make Christmas my b*&#h.  I started by purchasing all of my gifts way in advance, so I could save, and adding a signature wrap.  Believe me everyone will know I gave them a gift.  I guess that saves me money on gift tags…come on you know this is from me.

I used three different wrapping papers, an old world map, a dark wood grain inspired print, and, of course, glitter.  Glitter paper is a beast to work with, it’s everywhere and won’t stay stuck.  The tape just ends up covered in amazing amazing sparkles.

Instead of using ribbon I used jute twine, it just feels more rugged.  I’ve always liked pairing delicate elements with harsh accents, it creates an interesting juxtaposition that piques people’s interest.  Anyway, the sprigs of evergreen were a final touch.

There you go.  I hope everyone has an amazing Christmahanakwanzika.
