“Brown paper packages tied up with string. These are a few of may favorite things.” From The Sound of Music…another one of my favorite things!
I believe whether the gift is big or small, the packaging makes a big impact. The hubby always rolls his eyes when I am wrapping a present but then I remind him of his mode of wrapping…brown paper sack stapled shut with a handwritten To/From in sharpie. Uh huh. Thank goodness he gives good gifts to make up for the wrapping!
I enjoy it…what can I say! So here is a small sample of some packages that I have personalized.
Other ways to add a little flare could be:
- add a few tissue paper puffs to a gift bag
- color coordinate package with the party theme
- simply add a monogram
- add a printable label with name
There are many great tutorials out there showing how to make labels using various programs. I use PicMonkey as well as the basic publishing program on the Mac. Cassie just did a great PicMonkey tutorial over at Hi Sugarplum!
There are many times when I find a great gift bag and add tissue…done! But I do tend to get creative and add my own flare!
