Okay, I have to admit that I am not finished Christmas shopping yet, but it’s never to early to think about wrapping ideas, right?
Today, we are looking forward to those last few minutes before Christmas when I will be madly wrapping goodies for under the tree! ;) I know you will be done long before I will be!
For my wrapping idea, I decided to team up some of the beautiful black ribbons available at May Arts with some krafty paper for wrapping, some chalkboard paper for a tag, and some fun metallic stars to create a wreath. The best part is that the tags are reusable – simply wipe clean and use them again. Switch the little coloured bow out and you could use them for birthday presents or other occasions too!
To create the wreath, I simply cut out a circle (no fancy cutting machines needed – just trace a circe and cut – mine is about 2″ in diameter), and then layer your stars. I used hot glue to adhere each, but glue dots would work well too!
- 1.5″ Black Net (EM 10)
- 3/4″ Black Grosgrain (QH10)
- 5/8″ Dot Grosgrain
- 1.5″ Metallic Star ( 481-15-31)
So, there you have it! A simple wrapping idea for all you kraft paper lovers! Make sure you check out what all of the ladies have for you in terms of inspiration if you haven’t already!

And make sure to leave some comments along the way because the Ribbon Lady is giving away 2 prize packs of 1 roll of Xmas ribbon (including the new releases) and 1 artful accent. It’s well worth the time to leave some love!
