Have you ever received a gift that was wrapped so beautifully you didn’t want to open it up? Those are the kind of gifts my Mom wraps. They could be on the cover of any magazine. She wraps our gifts each year according to our interests. I’m thinking there will definitely be some Frozen, cowboys and Star Wars inspired paper under the tree this year. For my own home, I chose papers that celebrate my love of neutrals.
As soon as I found these old bank bags this past spring I knew immediately I was going to use them as our “stockings” this holiday season. They were perfection. So imagine my excitement when the ladies of this blog series decided we should include wrapping paper. It meant only one thing. I needed to use vintage inspired banknotes as part of my wrapping paper theme.
First, I found this deer graphic from The Graphics Fairy . Then I used different fonts to make the banknote in a Word document and printed it out on card stock using my home computer.
Most of these gifts are wrapped in card stock or paper that I found at my local craft supply store. I try to scoop them up when they’re 50% off. They’re the perfect size to wrap a small gift.
I love the way the colors complement each other in this vintage dough bowl.
You guys know I have a soft spot for anything that’s vintage or neutral. My heart definitely speaks in neutrals.
See you guys back here tomorrow for Day 3 of this holiday series – wreaths!
