DIY Envelopes

I have an absolute love of all things paper so what better way to indulge in that addiction than to make some cute colourful envelopes.

These can be used not only for cards but for small gifts in place of packaging. You can make these out of all types of paper including maps and old books which look great.   There is such a big range of scrapbooking paper you can buy now which would also look fantastic on these or use magazines or newspaper that you have at home.

Button Gift Wrapping Ideas

Well this has made me realise what I can do with that big tin of spare buttons I have.  I had never thought to put buttons on my gifts but they actually look fantastic,  how easy to simply thread on twine or string and wrap around natural brown or white paper or boxes

I will now pull out that tin of loose buttons & start making use of them.   Now I just need some Birthdays so I can try these ideas out!

Take a look at these:

Washi Tape

Loving the fabulous Washi Tape, colourful Japanese paper tape that can be used for more than just taping a gift.

I have had fun sticking washi tape to shipping tags & mini pegs to make quick little gift cards as you will see below and more ideas can be found over on our Craft Ideas & Gift Wrapping Ideas Boards on Pinterest.  Washi Tape can be found in our shop.

Love this fantastic idea of decorating paper with washi tape, then scanning it & finally printing as many pages as you need:

There is something special about giving a gift that you have made yourself.   Not only do you get the satisfaction of creating something special but also the recipient can see that you put time & effort into their gift.
