When paired with simple embellishments—like black-and-white photos or a vintage doily—kraft paper gives your gifts a pretty yet casual feel.
1. Pen Pals
Use a paint pen to create simple designs with the look of chalk—and none of the mess.
2. Photo Finish
Skip the gift tag in favour of a black-and-white photo. Thanks to social media, finding photos of your friends and family has never been easier! Secure images in place with double-sided tape.
Pro tip: For a seamless look, use a glue gun to secure wrap in place on either end of a box and to add ribbon to a package. Fabric ribbon works best.
3. Love Lace
Embellish a package with a vintage—or store-bought—doily.
