I mentioned in an earlier post how much I love brown paper wrapped packages
for the holidays. I knew I would use brown paper,
but I still didn't have any set ideas
about how I would embellish my packages.
Then I saw a couple of great images, and I knew what I would do.
I saw some pictures of brown paper wrapped packages with
torn fabric ribbons and torn fabric rosettes. I fell in love!
I decided that I only wanted
to use fabrics and embellishments that I already had around the house.
These are the first three packages I wrapped. For one I used the red and white plaid flannel that I used for the outside decorating. I just ripped strips of the fabric to go around the package, and ripped another long strip to form a rosette for the center. I hot glued the rosette together, and then hot glued it to the package. I found a vintage button to put in the middle of the rosette.
For the other two packages I used cotton fabrics that I ripped into strips.
Again I used vintage buttons in the middle.
That was as far as I got last night, but I think I will try some more
Here and here and here for the images that inspired the wrapping. The first two inspiration images are from here. They sell stripped ribbon from cotton fabric and other items like twine, stickers, and such.
Have you started wrapping yet?
