Wrapping Presents with Brown Paper

I get really bored with wrapping paper.  I've tried making various bows and wrapping the ribbon in different directions.  I've tried dangling charms from the bows.

About a month ago, I was walking through the Dollar Store, and I found rolls of plain brown wrapping paper.  Currently, I have wrapped 11 gifts (half of them pretty decently sized) using one of the rolls, and I still have about half of that roll left.

With this last round of gifts that I wrapped, I used old scrapbook paper for decoration.  Colorful twine or yarn would have been simple, but cute, too.

To stick with the simple brown paper theme, I drew the "labels" on.  What do you think?  What unique wrapping idea do you use?

  1. These look great! I have dreams of brown paper but haven't found it cheap enough. Next year I'll check the dollar store!

  2. Love this idea. Thrifty and a great way to be creative and spruce it up to make it all your own.

  3. Very cute! I would love for you to share this or any of your great ideas at the link party going on now (and every Saturday through Tuesday) at 'Or so she says ...' Hope to see you there!

  4. I like how you decorated them with Scrapbook paper - they turned out so cute! I didn't event think of that. We did brown paper wrapping this year too and painted the first letter of each recipient on the present - plus I added some glitter, because everything can use some bling, right? I got the idea on Pinterest and it turned out pretty cute!


Thank you for visiting! I would love to hear from you!
