7 sleeps left to finish your holiday gift wrapping and counting ...

Seven sleeps left to finish your holiday gift wrapping ... even less if you are exchanging gifts with friends and family this weekend! We have a number of holiday gift wrapping supplies on sale but quantities are very limited so don't wait too much longer. Here's some of my favourite gift wrapping ideas right now ...

 Our "Into the Woods" kraft wrapping paper is currently my personal favourite and the paper I selected to wrap my family's gifts with this year. This pattern can be used all year long so I'm hoping there will be some left over and I won't have to pack it away after the holidays.

I combined plain kraft wrapping paper and the "Into the Woods" kraft wrapping paper on this rigid clear box with 12 compartments. I arranged jelly belly candies that I purchased in bulk inside the box and I'm using these as an additional gift for a few people that will be receiving gift cards.The printable for the label can be found on this post.

Large clear boxes can be used like "snow globes" to make small gifts into something really special. The small box wrapped in kraft paper inside the box holds a piece of jewellery. Add acorns or small pine cones for a natural look like I did. Or if you prefer something a little more sparkly ... use gold wrapping paper and add mini ornaments in festive colours.

Holiday greetings and chalkboard packaging supplies ... what could be more festive. Use chalk markers to write/draw on any black paper packaging product (bags, wrapping paper, etc). Chalk markers do not rub off once the ink has dried so I keep a bunch of them on hand to use on my gift tags as well.
