I’ve been getting a lot of questions recently about my fabric wrapped Christmas presents. WELL i’m really excited to say that we’re in to the third year of doing this in our family, and i love it even more! There’s something really satisfying about pulling out my little bag of wrappings and knowing that i won’t be throwing any of it in the trash, and i didn’t have to rush to the store to buy paper at the last minute. YES!
So here are the posts i’ve done about my fabric wrapped presents:
The original post where i first tried the idea
FAQ’s and Tips for wrapping presents with fabric (This time i’ve really perfected my wrapping technique to completely remove the need for using another other securing device than just ribbons and the fabric itself).
Last year i also added reusable felt gift tags, and i’m so glad i did, this year wrapping was such a breeze
Also if you’re feeling really crafty, here are a few other ways i’ve tried to make our Christmas more handmade. I was hoping to add more to the list this year, but I guess moving house and being pregnant has turned out to be enough for me to handle this December hehe
[TUTORIAL: handmade Christmas stockings]
[TUTORIAL: Holly garland]
[TUTORIAL: Another Holly Christmas garland]
[TUTORIAL: Felt & leather acorn ornaments]
[Storing handmade garlands and buntings]
[Holly tree skirt]
AND Kelli over at True Bias is hosting a handmade ornament exchange again this year – and a bunch of my favourite bloggers will be sharing what they made and their tutorials for their creations very soon (heres the list of bloggers), so make sure to keep an eye out! Last years were absolutely amazing and i know this year will be too (my kids had an epic battle this year over who would hang Jen’s Narwhal ornament hehe)
Any other handmade Christmas things on your radar this year?
