call it recession chic * call it vintage-inspired * call it what you will – brown paper packages, especially when tied up with string, are the hottest thing in gift wrap this year.
i am so inspired by all the kraft paper & baker’s twine that i decided to make “brown paper packages tied up with string” the theme of our holiday decorating this year! so let these items inspire you, too. i’ll be back this afternoon with a tutorial for a garland that i made on this theme.

I really enjoy the little sticker added to the package above. Using brown/kraft paper and simple string or ribbon to tie it really gives you the opportunity to bring attention to great gift tags, buttons, or other embellishments!
