I am a paper & pattern freak, so my eyes are always peeled:).

1. Look for prints & solids that are in the color scheme you love with varied designs, shapes & sizes.

Think outside the box, it doesn’t have to be “holiday” paper.

I love neutrals, grays, tans, creams, silver, etc…

&

found these {above} in Home Goods.

2. Use different textures for “ribbon.”

Again, I like neutrals so I stuck with twine, jute & yarn

{hope that doesn’t make me boring, lol}

Be creative, sometimes it is fun to overlap and wrap it around for a layered look.

3. Use something different for tags, like these flash cards from THIS amazing shop.

4. Hang small ornaments for a fun touch. City Farmhouse- 10 fun & meaningful holiday wrapping ideas {use poloaroids & ornaments}

And here if my FAVORITE idea…

5. Use photos for gifts tags. These where made at Pic Monkey & printed on thick cardstock.

This is so fun & a great conversation piece.

The best part, you can use them as ornaments when your done.

6. Pom-Poms! Here is an easy tutorial, you can even involve your kids or grandchildren:).

7. Add Silhouettes, they add such a sweet touch.

I made these a while a while ago from THIS tutorial and updated them at Pic Monkey.

These can also become ornaments.

{just be careful if there are any babies around, they are small}.
