kraft + red I've done this two Christmases so far. Christmas 2012 was kraft paper with red/white polka dot paper wrapping. Christmas 2009 or 2010 was kraft paper with red/white polka dots and vintage dictionary pages.
Newspaper wrapping and monogram gift tags! you know what - I have wrapped gifts in newspaper before but when they are all together like this they look terrific! I think this will be my plan for this year!
Gift bags made from newspaper?Nah I don't care about making the gift bag but you might and that is cool. I will buy some colored bags, but I like the doily idea on top. Cute treat bags or holiday gift bags.
