Christmas Giftwrapping

Just wanted to share something different. I wrapped two sets of gifts for Christmas last year. One for my husband's family, the other for mine.

Theme I decided on then was craft paper. So for my husband's family, I used the typical christmas gift wrapping colour, red. For accents, I used newspapers. So I made some newspaper flowers to top the presents. Here are their presents.

I was gonna use the same theme for my family but I was inspired by Tiffany's paper bag and decided to go with aqua blue ribbons. Here they are:

I die cut some tags using scraps from my many failed Christmas Cards attempt and Papertrey Ink's tiny tags die. The tags are tied using silver strings to give the presents some bling.

I wrapped these presents so that they looked alike for each couple / family. My favourite are my elder bro's and his wife's present (first two from right). I was running out of wrapping paper and I was not allowed to leave the house (post baby confinement) so I resorted to stitching some scraps into paper bags. They ended up looking classiest of all.

As for my sister's daughter's present, I thought craft paper and ribbons wouldn't be attractive enough for a 2 year old so I stamped lotsa animals onto the craft paper (stamp set: Papertrey Ink Tiny Treats: Birthday). Didn't seem to make any difference though... I guess kids love presents and do not care about their wrappings.
