My Country Modern Gift Wrap {2013}

Eight days until Christmas Day…are you ready? 
(no pressure)
If not I have some ideas for you, grab some coffee and take a break while I show you 
what I came up with for unique gift wrap this year…

Gift wrapping this year has been more fun than ever.

I have been collecting natural elements, fun ribbon, sparkly silver twine,
and kraft paper from both Dollar Tree and Target.  
Instead of traditional gift tags I opted for large adhesive letters from the 
hardware store, and some chipboard and foam letters for scrap booking.

Every room needs a little black (or a lot, preferably chipped and faded!) to ground it.
And I love how touches of black, sparkle, and wood bring a special touch to the 
outside of a gift.
I still have my favorite gingerbread house inspired wrap and bags under the tree as usual.
But to let my love of country/rustic/modern/farmhouse (what the heck do you call it?)
extend to gift wrap was really fun.

  8. Do you mind if I quote a few of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your site?
    My blog site is in the very same niche as yours and my users would truly benefit from a
    lot of the information you present here. Please let me know if this ok with you.

  9. My brother suggested I would possibly like this web site.
    He was once entirely right. This post truly made my day.

    You can not consider just how so much time I had spent for this
    info! Thanks!

  10. No matter if some one searches for his required thing, therefore
    he/she desires to be available that in detail, therefore that thing is maintained over here.

  11. RmfzVG There is noticeably a bunch to know about this. I feel you made some nice points in features also.
