I love this trend of brown paper packages tied up with string - baker's twine. I've used this look a bit in my holiday gift wrapping this year. First with little gift packages I created for the gals at card club. These gifts are packaged in printed chevron kraft bags and topped with red card stock, a doily and a printed label.
Second with the 12 days of Craftmas gifts I annually prepare. I usually make three sets of 12 days packages but due to my stress level this year I only got one completed. And, too boot - not delivered on time. Oh well. It's the thought, right? These packages are wrapped in kraft butcher's paper and tied up with tinsel trim. I also used a paper doily on these gifts. The presents seemed a little plain without the doily and I like how it helps to showcase the tag which states which day to open the gift.
I created the tags in illustrator for both and used the Harmon font family for most of the typesetting. I am please with how these gifts turned out and hope they were and will be fun to open.
