I thought a lot about this one, and ultimately went with kraft. I used paper bags vs actual wrapping paper…
I also grabbed a rubber spatula (thanks Martha Stewart!) at Macy’s to top my gifts, as well as some doilies, kraft twine (ribbon?), orange lace, and loads of tape. When wrapping for a wedding, use TAPE!!! Cards can come loose, things get bumped around… make it secure. It’s got a journey from the wedding to the bride & groom’s home where they’ll find and open it after their honeymoon.
My tag was made with Studio Calico letter stickers (love) which I removed after misting heavily. I also stamped with a memory box butterfly, and added a Girls Paperie star to the very top (using LOTS of tape). It is deceptively simple – this one took me some time and thought to figure out!! In the end I love the way it turned out.
Even better? Jason (aka mr. never impressed) was VERY impressed and commented even. I smiled and said “what’s the point of being crafting as much as I do if you can’t kick some butt in wrapping up gifts?” It gets better – because upon arriving at the wedding my gift SO fit into their whole wine country rustic elegant look.
Score one for the crafter.
