"What Can Brown Do For You?" {a gift wrap mini-series}

After hoarding more and more gift wrapping ideas lately (thanks Pinterest), I noticed a common thread: 

kraft paper.

The classic neutral. 

The blank slate for all kinds of extravagant embellishments. 

And yet?

Also the perfect background for sweet, simple, and understated.

How can you not fall in love with that?

So.

Starting Monday.





It'll be no full on wrap your crap production, but it's summer, and you've got baby showers, weddings, and swanky soirees, and maybe I'm not the only one that needs some motivation to stop being so lazy.

Not that I ever am.





Are you with me?

  1. yes, I'm with you. But next year you need a series in May to inspire teacher gifts. I never know what to give them and don't think about it until I'm headed to the class parties and it's too late.

  3. I hate wrapping gifts. Never have the 'right' paper. I can't imagine that Kraft is ever NOT the right paper, right?

  8. Yipeeeeeeee! I can't wait! :) I love kraft paper...I used it quite a bit this past Christmas for gifts. It was really fun to use, and made each gift unique adding all kinds of fun ribbons and doo-dads to it!

    Hope your weekend is going great!
