Inkling: it’s a wrap – take two

Here’s another idea for holiday gift wrapping.

Plain white gift wrap is as versatile as brown kraft paper. You can use it for any occasion and transform the look with a few embellishments.

A single strand of mini pom poms and a crafted flower dress up this package. As with my first package, this look can be used for any occasion or for the upcoming holidays.

To make paper flowers, you simply cut out flower shapes. Layer them with the largest at the bottom and the smallest at the top. Poke a hole through all the flowers and add a button, berry or brad to secure. Gently curl the petal for a more natural look.

Plan ahead and make your embellishments in advance. The holidays can be hectic. If you wait until the last minute to wrap - and I’ve been there - you’ll be digging for last year’s gift bags to re-use.
