All sewed up. Out of tape? No problem. Get unique and machine sew your wrapping paper together.

White on white on white. Go all out on a white Christmas this year with white wrapping paper, white ribbon and top it all off with a white swing tag. Such a simple and clean look.

The rustic look. This involves elements like fabric instead of paper, jute string instead of ribbons and a small stem of leaves for that organic vibe. This is sure to be an eye-catcher!

Night sky inspired. It’s simple. Black paper and a metallic marker. The rest is up to you! Draw something festive on the paper or, write something sentimental.

Read all about it! This is perfect for those who love reading, whether that be newspapers, glossy magazines or books. This idea will save you heaps of moolah and it’s a thoughtful way to wrap a gift this holiday season!
