The Inspired Notebook

Holiday Gift Wrap

If you have been a reader here for a long time, you probably remember me mentioning how I almost enjoy wrapping gifts more than I enjoy making them. Today, I'm sharing quick tips from my inspired notebook to make wrapping all those holiday gifts fun and easy!

In my opinion the smaller the packaging the sweeter it is! I used the match box technique with my scoring board and an adorable mason jar die cut to create the mini holiday treats gifts. The top left photo is a Christmas Countdown in Box project I taught at my Holly Days Workshop. You can make the little compartment box with this video! It's filled with little cards, ornaments, and ribbons to make a countdown tree!

The snowflake box is part of the Christmas Countdown Planner. I simply printed the gift box, cut it out, scored it with my bone folder and taped it together. Then I filled the gift box with my favorite Christmas mints!

  1. the wrapping techniques..If I could make such sweet packages and not wrap stuff and end up making the present look like a big blob, im pretty sure I would love gift wrapping as much as you do!

    1. LOL, my husband feels the same. He's best at stuff it all into a bag!

  2. Oh yes- I'm all about the packaging. I have been known to buy things that I didn't need at all just because the package was cute.

    1. LOL Gina, I've likely done that before too

  3. I love all your ideas and I agree with you about the presentation is everything!
