Are you ready for National Wrapping day? It’s not long now, as its set for the 14th December. You can find out more details by visiting the National Wrapping Day website. There are competitions already on the site, as well as videos with suggestions on how to wrap those awkward gifts.
I have completed my Christmas gift buying, so just need to finish all of the wrapping. I wrote a post last month with some hints and tips how to do this quickly and efficiently, using tools such as a Scotch pop-up tape handband, so you don’t have to worry about, cutting the sticky tape.
For this post I thought I would include to simple and stylish ways to wrap presents, using brown paper. So simple, but don’t they look amazing!

As you can see I am a huge fan of brown paper, and this combination of paper, a strip of tape or ribbon with an old black and white postcard, I think it looks stunning! You could photocopy an old wintry postcard to make it cost-effective.

Or how about tying up a present with string, and making it look like a package ready to be posted. Most of the decorations could be done with stamps, however a lovely personal touch would be to address the packages to the actual recipients.
This is something that I have done with some gifts this year. You can buy sticky vinyl sheet to add names or shapes like the stars and tree that I did above. So simple to recreate, and no need for gift tags!
So remember national wrapping day is the 14th of December. Jane Means, the gift wrap guru, is going to be a part of the first National Wrapping Day.
Put on some festive tunes, a cheeky glass of something sparkling and get wrapping!
