DIY Gift Wrap from Grey Likes Weddings + Free Download
December 22, 2011
I'm just going to say it. Summer Watkins, over at Grey Likes Weddings, is a gift wrapping genius. She's a lot of things genius, but gift wrap in particular. She knocked our Christmas paper loving socks off last year with her series on fabric adorned packing and she's come out of the gate swinging again this year. But she's added layers of jewels, broaches and glittery accoutrements that have taken pretty presents to an entirely new level. So study up girls. Your family and friends will love you for it.

From Grey Likes Weddings...Our concept centers around the idea of using gift wrap as an added gift! We decided to use affordable jewelry (found at stores like Forever 21) as gift'll spy some broaches, earrings (used individually on two separate gifts), a ring, and even necklaces wrapped around some of the boxes. For gift tags, Lindsay of MStetson Design created long skinny tags that we fashioned in all sorts of ways. There are 12 in total, all of which feature a different line from "Twelve Days of Christmas". These tags can be downloaded and printed for your own use here! Of course we couldn't resist a surprising color concept: navy, blush, teal, and copper. Our fabric accent pieces were purchased from Forever 21.
