As you probably know if you’ve been following me for any length of time, I live for Christmas. It’s so bad. So, so bad. But I’m a proud Christmas nerd!
I like having themes for my gift wrap every year and this time, it’s red plaid and brown paper and twine. A throwback to my 90’s days maybe? Or lumberjack chic? I like that. I’ll go with lumberjack chic.
I started out by making the tags. I used regular store price tags, glittered them on the edges, and replaced the string with a pretty gold ribbon. Then I made a bazillion origami paper stars out of brown paper. Here is a great tutorial on the specifics of how to make them. For this size, I started with a 3 1/2 inch square of paper. When they were finished, I threaded them with twine using a large-eyed needle.
I can’t remember exactly where I got the paper but these designs are easy to find. For the twine, I used a combination of regular kitchen twine and a roll of sparkly jute I picked up at Target.
I’m thinking I might snip a few springs of greenery right before I give them away and tuck it under the string. Super cute, right? I love these kinds of natural, easy-going designs.
