|Brown Paper Packaging|
How beautiful is the simplicity of brown paper and string for gift wrapping! I firmly believe that as much time should be spent on selecting the wrapping for a present as deciding what gift to give. Half of the joy of a present is the anticipation of what is inside. Wrapping a present is both a form of self expression and also really allows you to personalize your gifts, adding your own unique style.
Each Christmas I spend time preparing my gift wrapping papers, ribbons and bows in readiness for all my gift wrapping. This year I have chosen my favourite brown paper wrapping, it is the perfect backdrop for any colour scheme and sits so perfectly with the gorgeous red and white butchers twine which reminds me so much of the traditional Christmas candy canes.
This year I am adding paper doilies into my gift wrapping, as I love the simple homemade
quality that it adds to a gift.
I like to use assorted ribbons to personalize each gift so that each one is slightly different from the next. Of course I have to stay within my selected colour scheme as I am a real sucker for the co ordinated effect!

But each year there is always a place in my heart for that butchers twine!
