    I adore the gifts wrapped with fresh pine! So prettty and I bet they smell amazing. Also, I really love what looks like a cut out of a Charlie Harper drawing of a cardinal, delightful!

    Wow, so much inspiration! I like when it's very creative and yet very simple to do, and a lot of this seems to fit in to that.

    gorgeous wrapping ideas.
    i am just wondering if you can recommend a source for good kraft wrapping paper.
    the paper i am currently using is very stiff and doesn't fold easily.
    i'd love to grab some before my major wrapping begins!
    thanks so much for the fabulous inspiration you always share!

    Thanks for your comments everyone!
    Melissa – I just spotted some nice kraft wrapping paper at Target last week. It has a very faint lined texture to it that looks great, and it can be found in the everyday wrapping section. I've also had success purchasing kraft wrapping paper from Michael's craft stores. The kind sold in the industrial packaging isles/post office is much thicker and generally not as nice to work with, so I recommend trying Target or Michael's.
    Have a wonderful holiday! xo Ez

    Ooooh thanks for including us in this beautiful collection. I'm especially taken with the white and bow tie pasta wrapping…I love it when everyday things are repurposed in pretty ways!

    Merry Christmas!!!
