holidays the handmade way :: gift wrapping

| handmade


happy december!  i found this post over at scoutie girl this morning- and fell in love!  i try to come up with a different, cheap and hopefully eco friendly way to wrap gifts each year- and baker's twine is going to be it this year!

perfect for brown paper kraft.  also, our local newspaper printer gives the end of their rolls away b/c the get to0 small to use (though there's still SO much on them!).  i used that last year- it's just unprinted newspaper on a roll- it's free and so easy to dress up!

  • I saw the same post this morning, & have already order my twine! :D I plan on using some adorable tags I found on Etsy ( & wrapping the packages in kraft paper. :D

    • hey victoria! yay! wow, thanks for that link- so cute!! (and affordable)

  • i’m so glad the post inspired you, bonnie! and i think you found even nicer images than i did!

    i just can’t get enough of all this simple gorgeousness. i’m going nuts at my house – and even have my husband on board for my “theme.”

    • haha- you’re posts always inspire me! thanks for letting me ‘feed’ off your idea. :)

      me too- i’ve already told david about it and have about 10 tabs of twine open- decisions decisions!

  • hello bonnie,
    thank you so much for including my twines, i am thrilled! ^-^
    i’m tweeting about your website now, thanks again!


    • thanks odette! *love your twines!

  • LOVE this post, Bonnie! Thanks for all the wrapping ideas. I have developed a HUGE crush on Baker’s Twine in the past couple of months. I will definitely be using it on packages this month! Me+Baker’s Twine=Bliss!

  • Thanks so much for including Divine Twine in your fantastic round up! So sweet of you! It’s so nice to know I’m not the only one that is affected by bakers twine. :)

  • This is my favourite “Roost” yet! Always inspiring! I’ve been gift-wrapping my Etsy things with ribbon and the like, but baker’s twine would be a gorgeous touch! Off to go shopping… oh, how I love Etsy! Thank you!

    • hey nancy! thanks! and, ditto that- what would we do without etsy? :) happy holidays- and thanks for commenting!
