The Lovely List | Give Pretty Gifts

This year, I thought it might be fun to do themed lists through the holidays. After all, we all need some inspiration when we’re down to the wire on gift giving.

Today, we’ll start out with ways to make your gifts really sparkle.

Stunning golden wrapping paper.

A new favorite has to be craft paper wrapping.  I love this Indian Block print wrapping too.

Or, better yet, make your own gift bag using this tutorial.

Seal it with washi paper tape. Lots of options here too.

Cross stitch gift tags. So clever.

DIY lino cut gifts tags from Phoebe.

What about DIY pom poms instead of ribbon?

A repurposed paper bow.

DIY glittery labels.

Very cute holiday cards. Lumberjack cards. A timeless winter themed card set.

And, finally, water color cards here and here.
