holiday packaging!

it's that time of year again, which means gift giving season is almost upon us! i've been obsessed lately dreaming of holiday packaging ideas for my artwork. how cute is this look? best of all, it is super easy to make yourself. and! after unwrapped, you are left with a darling little string of garland to brighten your home.

DIY garland supplies: 
1" round paper punch
paper scraps
(here, i used paint swatches, accumulated through years of design/DIY projects!)

oh, the color combinations to be had! i can't wait to start wrapping up artwork orders with these little gems.
what is your favorite way to wrap gifts? any other ideas i should try? i've been thinking of ways to incorporate maps and lace...:)


  1. Oh my gosh i started cutting out circles about a week ago [also from leftover paper craft project]...thinking about an event next fall...thinking about using a sewing machine instead of glue?!

    LOVE your colors!

  2. yes yes YES! I also thought a sewing machine would be the cutest! What sort of event are you planning?
    we should have a garland making party!

  3. I AM SOOOOOO COPYING YOU AND MAKING THIS! In love! You are great.
