I love simple wrapping and usually use butcher paper or shipping paper and a little natural twine or baker's string as a tie. I love the added touch here of using a label maker to create a simple name tag. Gonna borrow this idea for sure!
comments from kim: colors are a bit too muted but like the watercolor and the couple kissing: artwork by François Henri Galland Watercolor is abstractly beautiful when it allows ones eyes to use imagination
Create gift bags from old book pages. Stamp a bird design on an old book page which has been cut 1 to 2 inches shorter than a second page. Sew or glue edges together. Secure with a brad or decorative button and small Velcro dots.
