This year's Christmas wrapping

Each year I wrap all my gifts according to a theme or colour scheme. There was one year when the gift tags didn't have names but a photo of the recipient. The kids in the family LOVED that! Last year I went through a Furoshiki phase (I still love it but I don't repeat the same thing twice). Read more about Furoshiki HERE. I use Furoshiki bags every day and if you have a big enough square cloth you can literally fit the kitchen sink in there.

This year I'm going for something different. I got this gorgeous paper at Flowerspot (www.flowerspot.co.za) and it is very romantic. Combined with it is a beautiful deep purple satin ribbon. The tags are stamped with Calendar Bits & Pieces and a flower from Faithful Florals (all from GinaK Designs). The tags are attached with purple stitched ribbon.
