DIY Christmas Gift Wrap Ideas

One day last week, I pulled out some rolls of gift wrap, a few bags, lots of ribbon, gift tags, vintage linens, handmade ornaments, some holly from the yard and got to wrapping.
Now, did a few of those items surprise you? I know that most people don't use vintage linens and handmade ornaments when they are wrapping their gifts, but not this gal, she likes to think outside of box, when it comes to gift wrapping for her family and friends. I thought that I would share some of my ideas with y'all today and maybe you will get inspired and try some out, when you are wrapping it all up!!!

                                         Make a small clipboard ornament
                                         and add a photo of the person who
                                         the gift belongs to and it will take
                                                      place of a gift tag.

                                                  These are super easy to make...
                                                        no instructions needed.
                                             Layer your box with two different
                                             papers and then add a vintage doily
                                                             and satin ribbon.

                                              Vintage gold trim and a DIY cross was
                                                              added to this gift.

                                             I added a vintage earring to this
                                             white cross, to make this ornament
                                                     special for my love one.

                                                I even used some paper doilies
                                                and holiday tags on some plain
                                                           brown paper bags.

                                               Another vintage doily and some
                                               pretty satin ribbon, make a huge

                                                    Instead of satin or paper
                                                    ribbon, try some pretty
                                                            lace instead. 

                                       Holly clippings and some craft stickers, also
                                                              come in handy.

                                         These cute gift tags can be found at Michaels.
                                          I find it funny that simple things like these
                                          tags make me happy. I have used them in
                                          vignettes and on my family tree this year.

                                     Yes, I am one of those people that coordinate
                                      their gift wrapping. I really love having it blend
