Chic Ways to Wrap Gifts

I have been having so much fun this holiday season wrapping gifts for customers of shopshorelychic and friends and family using papers and fabrics I already have in my little workshop rather than going to the store and buying the traditional wrap. I think it's fun and unexpected to wrap up gifts with materials people don't normally see, plus it's green!

A friend ordered some of my candles for her mother and mother-in-law and I thought to use leftover fabric with raffia, see how cute?

and here it was, in the box and ready to go along with a needlepoint Trina Turk pillow :)
browsing around I found these other great ideas that I can't wait to try out!

these old maps look awesome on this package!

brown paper with folded up print looks very cute!



  1. Beautiful! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  2. Love the brown paper with the folded up print! I have also used wall paper scraps as wrapping.

  3. Thanks for popping over to my Blog, I am now following you.
    Love your wrapping with the fabric....just divine.

  4. Love the plain brown paper with the lettered pages. That looks terrific. I am going to copy that one!!

  5. Such cute ideas! Loving the fabric and raffia...perfect for wrapping oddly shaped gifts.

  6. OH MY GOSH...this is awesome. Just did a gift wrap post...already used the rosemary idea (grows in our yard). LOVE the fabric wrap. I worked for Scalamandre' and still have discontinued wallpaper that makes a pretty wrap, too. Want to follow your blog.
    Merry Christmas,
