Just the simple act of giving a thoughtfully made or found gift is such a beautiful gesture and show of love. And wrapping it up in a pretty package is half the fun! With that in mind, I invited Whitney Horito to do a guest series on our blog in the weeks leading up to Christmas. In each post, she’ll share a creative way to dress up your presents. Enjoy! – Eva
I love how a touch of gold adds that little bit extra to things. For this gift, we added a simple tag with a gold dip to our Indigo Stripes Gift Wrap. The process is super easy and makes a huge impact!
First, I traced a circle (using a can as a stencil) onto a sheet of heavy paper. Then, I cut out the circle and hole punched the top. Using a piece of tape, I marked off a little below half of the circle and colored the space below the tape with a gold Sharpie paint maker. When finished, I pulled off the tape which left a nice crisp line and wrote the recipient’s name on top. – Whitney

I find hand lettering to be a beautiful art, so it’s natural that I would incorporate it into my gift wrapping. I love how the string adds a three dimensional aspect to the recipient’s name on our Indigo Speckles Gift Wrap.
To make the string lettering, I used a hot glue gun to glue the string down at certain points. I started at the beginning with a dot of glue and adhered the end to the wrapping paper while working with the ball of string. I “wrote” the name out with the string, adding more dots of glue as I went. I like that it’s a fun and different way to identify the recipient of the present! - Whitney
