I adore brown paper and burlap.......like you have no idea how much. By themselves they are the humblest of materials but paired with the right accessories, they are the belle of the ball! So with this in mind I am totally siked to "go green" this year with my gift wrapping. What could be better?........I get to save money, and preserve the planet while creating something beautiful. Something that my friends and family will love and appreciate. Win. Win!
Burlap and brown paper are the perfect canvas to create the most fabulous creations. From Rhinestones, ribbons, stencils and stamps to feathers and pretty much anything else you can imagine, these materials are perfect to dress up. I personally love using small pieces of burlap/ brown paper as an accent (like you see here) and using handmade bows and other crafty knick nacks to bring my packages alive. Who wouldn't want to receive a gift like this? Just make sure though that the contents of your package lives up to the presentation ...... lol, just sayin.
I really like the idea of this doily on brown paper. (You can find paper doilies like this
one at most party favor stores, and even at dollar shops.) Sweet!
