Wrapping Week 2013: Twine and Greenery

This is surprisingly easy and perfect for a recipient who’s on the outdoorsy side. Just take some rough twine or rope–this is hemp twine–and wrap it around your box a few times and tie it, then slip in a few pieces of greenery. These were clipped from my tree a week ago and still look good.

A couple notes in case you missed the last few posts:

  • I buy my paper from Home Depot–a huge roll is only $10 in the paint aisle. You can also buy it in smaller, more expensive quantities at craft stores or with the shipping materials in grocery or drug stores or you could even cut up paper grocery bags if you’re a total Martha.
  • This year I’m using free printable gift tags from here on all my packaging. I just printed them out on cardstock, cut them out, and punched a hole in each. Voila!
  • This particular type of brown paper does well with tape as long as I run my nail across it to create a good seal, but if tape just won’t stick to your paper try using hot glue instead.
