WRAP A LOVELY (Lit­tle) PRESENT

Lend cre­ative co­he­sion to the hol­i­day gift hodge­podge with a sig­na­ture strat­egy.

- Fashion & Beauty

Time­less tar­tan mo­tifs (dixie-de­sign.com, pa­per­source.com) of­fer an ex­er­cise in pat­tern play. Mix and match rib­bons of vary­ing colors and widths, and at­tach sprigs of green­ery and a jin­gle bell or two as happy present-top­pers.

Brown kraft pa­per speaks to our pro­tag­o­nist’s keep-it-sim­ple in­cli­na­tions, while mini wreaths (cyprus clip­pings ar­ranged in a cir­cle) se­cured with baker’s twine and red vel­vet rib­bons (cas­par­i­on­line.com) add fes­tive tex­ture.

Color­ful card-stock poin­set­tias—cut by hand (down­load a tem­plate at coun­tryliv­ing.com/pa­per-poin­set­tia) and se­cured with a but­ton—add 3D charm atop solid and wa­ter­color ging­ham wax pa­per (zaz­zle.com). Fin­ish with fringed rib­bon.

Glitzy metal­lic rib­bon (an­ge­laliguori.com) and frosty mint and pink pas­tels make for a fan­ci­ful, scene-steal­ing al­ter­na­tive to the typ­i­cal sea­sonal pal­ette of red and green. Pom-pom gift-top­pers add a lux­u­ri­ously fluffy fin­ish.
