Quick Christmas Wrapping Ideas and Tutorial

It’s Christmas Eve Eve! You’re probably doing last minute shopping and wrapping your gifts as fast as you can. Since I’m doing the same, I figured I’d put up this last minute wrapping tutorial and idea. I kept it simple this year with vintage looking paper from Rifle Paper Co., twine, and some cute holly toppers I made with left over felt from my felt tree tutorial.

Rifle Paper Co has these great wrapping paper sheets that I adore. They’re heavy duty and the perfect size for medium sized packages.

I like to use only 3 pieces of tape (1 on bottom, 1 on each side) for a perfectly wrapped package that is easy to open. Everyone asks how I  wrap so neatly. Well, here’s how I do it.

WrappingI used twine to embellish with a simple bow.
