With Christmas round the corner, hopefully most of your gifts have already been bought and all that’s left now it’s wrapping them and marking who should be opening them.
With our Christmas themed collections, there are plenty of options on how to make the piles of goodies under the tree beautiful and colourful.
Ava Gavloski used Farmhouse Christmas as a base for the gift bags and gift tags.
Vintage gift tag
Vintage organic gift tags are center stage on any solid colored gift box. The presentation is remarkably luscious.

One last look of the tag on the kraft paper.
Christmas gift wrapping, packaging and presentation is so much more enjoyable when you can prepare well in advance before the rush of the season is upon us. Some years time permits this luxury and you will find sheer pleasure when purchasing some of Canvas Home Basics pattern papers. It’s amazing what you can do with pattern cardstock and supplies from your home stash. I am so pleased how festive my gift packages have turned out. Truly eye candy.

Painting the Jolly Christmas on White with Glimmer Glam and Mist’s was a treat.
The Glam paint truly is exceptional when it dries a high gloss.
Trim this sheet using a pillow box template.
Cutting red and green burlap into a 1 inch strip creates a cute little flower.
Use wire to gather the burlap and top off the flower with a pearl using Xyron adhesive.
Distress the edges of all the panels of cardstock.
Trim out the Christmas Tags from the sheet, distress with tool, ink edges and layer with cheese cloth.
Adhere each panel using 3D foam tape.
Here is one of the kraft gift bags.
This is a photo of the larger kraft gift bag.
Together the kraft gift bags will surely make a great presentation under the Christmas Tree.
The intensity of the Glam painted pattern papers really showcase how attractive gift wrapping can be.
Big bows bring a striking look to the pillow boxes.
I hope you have found some ideas for your gift wrapping this season.
Have a great Christmas!
