Paper Packages Tied Up With String, These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

I LOVE buying gifts for people....and I love wrapping them up in pretty little packages even more!

Right after I featured the notecards from Pixelimpress in my Hostess with the Mostess post, I won my very first giveaway in Blogland, from Sarah at Flourish Design + Style! And funny enough, the giveaway was Gift Tags from Pixelimpress!!

I've never used gorgeous tags like these on my packages, so I decided to showcase them and let them shine!

Our tree is all green and white lights this year (we'll tour the house tomorrow), so I went with a red and white color scheme on the packages to really accent the colors. I love how the gift tags make each present look extra special!

I continued my reign as the worst snowflake maker in history, by making a few for some packages (it is the theme of our decor this year). While I don't love the snowflake designs, I love how cute the effect is with a bow or crystal bead glued to the center.

By using all the same color paper and ribbon, it made wrapping so much easier! Everything mix-and-matched beautifully.

(Little take-out boxes are my favorite for wrapping up gift cards!)

I'm about half-way done with all my gift wrapping, and besides a stiff back, I'm still having fun with it! I view each package as it's own little masterpiece for the recipient.

Here's a peek at the green tree and red packages...so festive!

And the color coordinating breakfast room, adjacent to the den:

So much for saving all the House Tour for tomorrow. How's your wrapping coming along....or are you still shopping?!

  3. Shopping done, wrapping not even started. These are adorable. You don't have to get me a present but can I just have one of the gift tags?? Ha!

  4. Shopping almost done, what is bought is wrapped and hidden so hubby doesn't give it to them early! I wish my wrapping was that gorgeous but I have little two year old hands that love to destroy bows (I hid the presents from hubby... the kids know where they are)

    Maegan could have used those tags for her cheveron post the other day, too cute!

  6. I love coordinating paper! I've been doing it for a few years, and it just makes your life so much easier! I love the little snowflakes on the packages! Too cute! I've been adding tiny ornaments to our presents to give it a little something extra.

    I still have shopping to do...boo! ...and I haven't wrapped one thing! :) I swear, I PROCRASTINATE with the best of them!

  12. Ahh you should see my post tomorrow! :) Yours all look great. Love the Sound of Music Reference. I think you created that title to send us all a subliminal message and have it stuck in our heads all day!

  17. I haven't even started wrapping yet, just not one of my favorite things to do, if they turned out like yours though it would be so worth it:) Beautiful tree and presents!

  18. Love the detail on the gifts. I think it is so much fun to come up with a new design for the gifts each year, and I think it is much more enjoyable to open them as well. I like the snowflakes, nothing like the look of homemade. You could always say the kids made them anyway ;)

  20. The tags looks great, they really do stand on their own. You could have wrapped them in newspaper and still looked good!

    I've got a few things left to shop for but haven't had a chance to wrap. I LOVE wrapping too!

  23. Those tags are adorable. I wish we did something more creative like that! Oh well, our tags from Target work, too. Your snowflakes are great, Cassie! I like that option, instead of the typical bow. Can't wait for the house tour tomorrow!

  30. I love wrapping presents and get so sad when we deliver them all on Christmas and our tree is bare again :( Should totally think about coordinating wrapping paper each year!
