Style Watch: Brown Paper Packages

Brown Paper Packages | Damask Love Blog

 

I’ve never really taken the time to notice raindrops on roses, but I’m sure it’s quite beautiful.

If I had  more disposable income, I’d splurge on a copper kettle, but those things are just so doggone pricey.

I don’t really have an opinion about ponies…cream colored or otherwise,

and I’ve never laid eyes on a wild goose…much less one flying in the middle of the night with the moon on it’s wings. Does that even really happen?

If you’ve got some apple strudel. Send it on over. I love that stuff…

and when you live in Miami like me, there is exactly 0% change you’ll ever have snowflakes on your nose or your eyelashes.

Clearly, I’m in a Sound of Music state of mind.  I guess after watching it this week, I’ve got brown paper packages on the brain. Now, I’m not gonna lie. I didn’t love Thursday night’s live version. Except for Audra McDonald’s performance. She can do no wrong. As for the rest, I guess Julie Andrews will always be my Maria.

Okay. I’m sure you didn’t come here for me to ramble about my theatrical preferences, but I promise there is a point to this. It all comes down to brown paper packages…because they truly are some of my favorite things.

Clear and Simple Stamps has more than 25 different dies specifically for gift wrapping – and that’s not counting all the cute dies you can use to embellish your gift packaging project. With a little musical theater inspiration, I’ve got nine little projects, all of which use kraft cardstock as a base for the packaging.

These brown paper packages are perfect for giving a “little something” to friends and coworkers – even it it’s just a chocolate truffle or a gift card. The collection of cute packages can also be boxed up and given as a gift!  A close friend of mine loves little packages like this and uses them for her own gift giving.

With everything boxed up, simple add a ribbon and tag like this one which I stamped using the All Wrapped Up stamp set, which includes cute sentiments that are perfect for this type of project.

    I’m loving your gift wrapping and tags. I bought kraft wrapping paper last year and use it exclusively. I love making my own tags. Yours are spectacular!
