Great packaging and great for the soul!

Heleen from Ruby in the Dust won our first giveaway which I thought was very exciting!

She said she loved to use old patterns for wrapping, so when I came across this (below) I had to post it!

The tags - I love them!

This tutorial comes from one of my favourite blogs Creature Comforts.
Check out the detail here!
Come back next week for more Christmas Wrapping tips and a cool feature (and giveaway) on Japanese Decorative masking tape - Happy tape, pretty tape or in NZ Kozo tape! You won't want to miss out!

Christmas gift wrapping tip one

In the lead up to Christmas I thought I would post some holiday gift wrapping ideas.

Tip One: You can gift wrap without paper!

I picked up these lovely pouches from Jennie from A Little Vintage yesterday and thought these would make a great gift wrap - reusable as a wrap or as an extra gift for your friends or family members.

Just think how lovely these would look all lined up under the tree. Like Candy!
