simple and pretty packaging
Hello everyone! I feel like it's been ages since my last post, so thank you for sticking around! :) I promise to do a post all about my life at college so far (and maybe a mini dorm tour!), but until then, here is a little crafty project!
I absolutely love to give people gifts, and one of my favorite things about it is getting to wrap the gift in a pretty package.
You can keep it simple and still create beautiful packaging even if you only use a few supplies. Here I only used washi tape, a shipping tag, a paper doily, and a date stamp.
I wrapped the box in kraft paper that I recycled from things I received in the mail.
I folded the paper around and secured it on the bottom with a strip of washi tape.
All I did to decorate was lay a paper doily on it, wrap the string from the tag around and held it all together with another piece of washi tape.
Kraft and twine are one of my favorite combinations. Paired with a few other embellishments, it can't get any better than that!
And I almost forgot the date stamp! I think it adds a nice touch. :)
I hope this gave you a little inspiration next time you need to wrap a gift! ♥
