{trends} kraft paper

i'm kinda disappointed with myself for not checking out {pinterest} for gift packaging ideas earlier. but, i noticed a common trend - kraft paper! not only is it really cool and a huge roll can be used for many occasions but it's also eco-friendly and you can dress it up any way you want... with yarn, buttons and ribbon.  if you want to skimp on the tag completely, just stamp the name of the recipient on the front. 
don't you love that?

and if you really want to have a eco-friendly holiday..visit your local trader joe's where their holiday shopping bags can be reused as gift wrap and tags.  love!

  3. I am so in love with kraft paper lol...I use it to wrap everything I ship out from my store:) It's perfect because it looks just as good with some cool twine as it does with pretty satin ribbon!

    gah, I haven't been to Trader Joe's for so long--I must go now to at least snag those cool bags!

  11. I love kraft paper - you can do so many fun things when wrapping with it. There's so many ways to dress it up - either with ribbons, or even stamping right onto the paper.

    I love kraft paper. Even as a child. Reminds me of my school projects and now I love it as an adult.

  14. I LOVE pinning and now I am following you at Pinterest AND I LOVE kraft paper which is what I used for all my gifts this year.... with a turquoise them using ribbons and cardstock and glitter glues and some fun branches coated in blue stuff (not sure what word would work best so "stuff" it is!)

    Cheers to you and your lovely blog.
