Hello Crate Paper friends! Lorilei here today bringing you some Merry inspiration for gift wrapping! The Merry collection by Crate Paper makes gift wrapping a breeze, having the co-ordinating Gift Wrap Book, Tag Set and Card Set mixed in with the Merry scrapbooking supplies gives you so many possibilities to wrap a truly special gift!
I started by choosing a gift to wrap for my husband and my daughter. It is so much fun to receive a gift that someone has put so much thought and effort into wrapping. The first package is wrapped with the falala paper, so that gives me a wonderful neutral base! I decided to string items on the gorgeous thick red and white string found in the tag set. I chose the Santa card to be the focal point of my gift topper.
I added the tree, merry & bright tag and Santa face to the string. I left room for my card to be clipped onto the string and also some space for the gorgeous glittery gold stars. I added a white doily behind my card and clipped it to the string with the super cute star epoxy paper clip. I love that the card is part of the decorating! One tip I wanted to share with you is that I narrowed down my choices when it came to deciding what to use, Merry Days has so much to choose from and if your anything like me you want to add it all! For my hubby, for example, I chose Santa, and then I only chose items that “fit” in with Santa, like the tree and the colors on the Merry & Bright tag. It gave me a unified look and made it quick and easy!
For my daughter’s gift I chose the pink holly paper (my favorite), and for the card, I selected the goose, the pop of red with the pink holly paper makes a lovely statement! As I was going through the Tag Set and the die cuts I found the pink house with the red door and knew it was the perfect fit for the package. Doilies and gold stars add a bit of softness and sparkle to the gift!
I hope you have a lovely day, Thanks so much for stopping by!
