I have always loved shopping for the holidays. I usually start in the summer and take my time finding things that perfectly fit each recipient. I am ashamed to say that I never spent much time wrapping. It’s a shame really, almost like spending hours working on the perfect print only to put it in a damaged frame. Gaaaa…
This year, I decided to use inspiration from Pinterest and motivation for My Crafting Attic to get my gifts wrapped early and with style. I have to say I am so excited to put the gifts under the tree this year!
Before I get into the how-to of each one I just have to show off the gift wrapping cart I threw together. Earlier this year I shared my gift wrapping closet which has worked out great. I love having everything organized in one place. However, during gift wrapping time I wanted something that was a little more portable and could hold everything for wrapping presents in the dinning room.
I found this RASKOG Kitchen Cart in IKEA and didn’t have a purpose at the time but just knew I would come up with something sooner or later. I know Christmas colors are traditionally red and green but I love adding hints of turquoise. Three tiers helped organize all of the ribbon, tags, boxes and other accents I have collected. I repurposed some of Parker’s Gerber lil’ Crunchies containers to keep things separate and just added a little contact paper to make them pop.
I am loving the way the pink pop against the silver, which is a repurposed box btw. The best part is this gift tag can be reused! I just dabbed a little hot glue on the back to secure it.
