Holiday Gift Wrapping Ideas: Brown Paper Packages

Posted by CraftFoxes Staff on Nov 17, 2013

Whether tied up with string, decorated with spice rack treasures or given fanciful flourishes of a more unusual kind, humble brown kraft paper is an inexpensive--yet ideal--canvas for holiday packages. Using the same base paper decked out countless ways keeps the look under the tree simple and cohesive. Get ready to wrap it up!

Uncommon Objects

Think beyond traditional adornments for packages and look to the pantry, junk drawer and ornament bin for bits and pieces to gussy up gifts in unique ways. Reuse old beads, brooches, a stray earring or broken necklace. Consider the potential in cheap flea market finds to embellish gifts--the options are endless.
