Gift Wrapping Inspiration

Our philosophy at The Penny Paper Co. is that it's the little details that make all the difference. We take the same approach when it comes to our Holiday gift wrapping. We love mixing elements from nature and even the dollar store with some of our popular wrapping items to create the most beautiful looking gifts. Here is some inspirational pictures and details on how you too can have this look for your gifts this season.  

 

 

1. CEDAR SPRIG GIFT  


Mix our Herringbone ribbon, hang tags and a Holiday Stamp with kraft paper and a cedar spring from the garden (or garden supply centre). The result is a gorgeous gift wrapped parcel that looks straight out of a magazine. The cedar not only looks beautiful - it gives off a beautiful aroma which will delight the recipient. Kraft paper can be found in moving supply stores, or office stores such as Staples

 

 

2. BURLAP + BELLS

 

We love the organic look of our new burlap bags mixed with some of our red herringbone ribbon and bells. Add a finishing detail of a stamped tag with one of our holiday stamps and the result is absolutely beautiful and festive. If you're like us you like to give some homemade goodies to loved ones during the Holiday Season. The burlap bag fits a large mason jar perfectly - which is great for homemade soups, cookies, or easy bake cookie mixes. Keep your gift cost down but wrap it in a way that makes it look like it came from a chic boutique. 

3. BAKING AND JARS

New for the 2013 Holiday Season is our "From The Kitchen Of" stamp that we think not only makes a great gift idea (hello hostess gift!) but it is a staple for your own collection. Stamp either round labels (such as the 2.5"  kraft labels that we picked up from our local business supply store) or use one of our own hang tags and attach to a mason jar of your choosing. Not only is this a wonderful way to gift wrap, but it's also a pretty cute and economical gift for friends & neighbours.
