Well, you know how the song goes. But isn’t it true? Packages wrapped in brown paper are just one of my very favorite things, as cliched as it may be, and it’s probably one of yours, too! What is it about brown paper and a little bit of twine that just feels so right?
And I absolutely love brown wrapping paper on Christmas presents, ever since I happened across an obscenely large stash of the stuff a few years back and could never seem to run out of it. Every year I start with that same brown canvas and then try and come up with something really special in the “string” arena. Red and white striped butchers twine is always lovely, doilies provide just the right feminine touch, and even standard old manila tags from the office supply section make such lovely (and inexpensive!) little gift tags.
After the jump, I’ve got lots of brown paper packages tied up with string, just for you, to help get you in the Christmas gifting mood. This slideshow made me so happy to put together. I hope you enjoy it just as much!
