gift wrap round up

one of my favorite things to do each year is choose a gift wrapping theme. one year it was recycled newspaper, the next was huge glittered initials for each package. last year i used kraft paper and made pretty bows, and this year’s supplies will be arriving shortly (maybe later today!). i’ll be sharing with you the theme for this year next week, but for now here are my favorite picks for gift wrap from around the web.

what will you be using this year?

1) ceramic gift tags – $8 | 2) good tidings wrapping paper – $12 | 3) peach berries – $7 | 4) woodland animal gift tags – $9.60 | 5) black woodgrain gift wrap – $9 | 6) 10 letterpress gift tags – $10 | 7) mustache gift wrap- $5.25 | 8) stripes wrap – $12 | 9) etoile velvet ribbon – $8 | 10) pink posies – $4.95 | 11) ecofriendly dots wrapping paper – $7 | 12) seersucker wrap – $8

 i’ve just been oohing and ahhing over these juicy gift wraps from smock (discovered here). i love the saturated colors and the fact that they’re reversible. they also have a lovely mission:

Who is Smock? We are faithful lovers of historic craft. We have letterpress ink in our veins. We are idealists. This means we believe in things. We read Walt Whitman. We fall head over heels for heavy cast iron presses. We believe in the creation of beautiful things. And we want, like you, to feel good about where our beautiful things come from.

holiday gift wrap round up

November 18, 2011

Posted by in christmas

i’m already getting all jittery over christmas time, and i’m so excited to start gift shopping and getting ready for the holidays. each year i try to do something different with my wrapping paper. you know, something that’s signature. something that doesn’t even need to have a ‘from: bonnie’ sticker on it, ’cause they just know it’s from me! one year it was newspaper (embellished, of course!), another year i attached big glittery letters that represented the recipients first name. i haven’t quite decided on what i’ll do this year yet, but i’m either going to buy some beautiful handmade paper or do something diy style (see some ideas at the bottom of this post!). what about you?

DIY Upcycled Gift Bows

April 18, 2011


As a paper crafter, I have so many left over paper scraps that I try to find a purpose for every piece. Gift wrap bows are one of my favorite ways to upcycle paper – it can be anything from scraps, to newspaper, to magazine pages and food packaging. Here are three ideas for saving would-be trash and making something beautiful out of it:

1. Spiral roses

Take a pretty page from an already-read magazine. With sharp scissors, cut a spiral shape into the page: use almost a full page for larger roses, and a quarter-page for smaller roses.

Next, tightly coil the paper spiral, and tape it together at the bottom. Use double-sided tape, or roll tape into itself, adhere to the bottom of the rose, and stick onto a present.

2. Classic gift bows

Using newspaper, magazine pages, scrapbooking paper, or hand-stamped paper (like mine), cut out 10 strips of paper – each strip 1/2″ wide, and lengths as follows: three 8″ strips; three 6″ strips; three 4″ strips; one 1.5″ inch strip. Loop each end of each strip in towards the middle, making a figure-eight, and stapling shut. For the smallest piece, make a simple loop and staple or tape shut.

Group the figure-eights by size, and staple the layers together. Next, glue the single round piece into the smallest star, the small star into the medium star, and the medium star into the largest star. Place a piece of double-stick tape onto the bottom, and attach to a wrapped gift. Beautiful!

3. Starburst gift bows

This one is probably my favorite. Simple take a colorful magazine page, and cut in half lengthwise. Cut this half page into fringe, about 1/8″ wide, and stopping about 1/2″ before the end of the page, for a nice base.

Roll the fringed magazine page in on itself; tape shut with scotch tape. Use your fingers to pull the fringe outward, all around. Tape a small piece of paper to the bottom of the bow, and double-stick tape the bow to a gift.

And that’s all there is to it! Three unique ways to save trees – and look good doing it.
