Pinterest-a-thon: that's a wrap

Thursday, February 23, 2012

You may remember Carrie from her decadent gorgonzola dish last month or perhaps the sweet and savory treats she left for Santa. This month, she's adding art to gift wrapping with inspiration from her DIY board.

The “pinspirations” for my first wrapping job came from Oh So Beautiful Paper and The Hay Stack Needle. Both use a simple style to create a darling little package that has a vintage feel. They also both feature brown package wrapping paper (which I am so into right now). Since I really like both ideas, I decided to combine them.

Here is what you need:  1 roll of brown packaging wrap; bakers twine; 1 gift tag; alphabet stamps; ink pad; scissors; tape.  Here is what you get:

My next inspiration comes from Martha Stewart (you may have heard of her?). I’ve seen quite a few tutorials on Pinterest that put cupcake liners to use and this one really caught my eye. This cupcake liner flower adds a unique touch that is sure to make anyone open your pretty package first!

Here is what you need: Martha Stewart's step-by-step tutorial, wrapping paper, ribbon, 4 coffee liners, 4 cupcake liners, 4 mini cupcake liners, 1 brad, scissors, tape, hot glue gun. Here is what you get:

Enjoy! Xo, C.
