I thought I would share my Tips for selecting Gift Wrap with all of you.
I love printed paper…I think it stems from my love of fabric. I always have scrapbook paper, gift wrap and fabric on hand… AT ALL TIMES!
There are so many options out there to choose from but be sure to buy heavy duty gift wrap. You have all had that paper that is so flimsy it rips when you are trying to cut it. My favorite is the Brother Sister design studio brand from Hobby Lobby. Of course, I always wait until it is 50% off week. That is when I buy ribbons as well. The back of the paper has the dotted lines so that you can measure out the size you need and cut it in a straight line. I don’t know about you but this is great for me!
When choosing your patterns be sure to pick one’s that can also be used all year round for other gift giving times. These are big rolls of gift wrap so they go along way. This will save you time and money.
Mix patterns! The best way to do this is by keeping the patterns close in size. I like to mix in groups of three, odd numbers are good in decorating and let’s face it, gift wrap is under the tree decorating at Christmas!
I like simple ribbons and name tags. I use basic solid ribbons in different colors and sizes. For name tags I just stamp right onto card stock paper, super simple.
I hope these tips for selecting gift wrap help you. Now I’m curious, do you love paper (any kind) as much as I do? Share any of your tips in the comments so we can all benefit.
