Brown paper packages tied up with string...

Recently on blogs, Pinterest and the Internet in general, I have seen lots of different ideas for wrapping gifts. I think it's especially nice when gifts are wrapped in brown paper with some pretty embellishments. I have had quite a few gifts to give recently - birthdays, house warming and thank you gifts - and decided to try out a few ideas...

Pretty ribbon and a little crochet flower...

Doily, felt heart, pretty button and pink string...

Bright pink ribbon and a little button...


Doily, felt flower, stripy pink string and a little ribboned tag...

I like wrapping gifts like this, it's fun adding on all the pretty little extras to make them look nice.

Thank you for for the lovely birthday wishes! They really made me smile :)

Back soon with some crochet...




  1. Great idea. I would be delighted to receive a gift like that. Wouldn't want to unwrap it x

  2. I'm in love with all of those. I had a brilliant present wrapped in pages glued together from an old dictionary and cross tied with string, it was so simple and effective. I'm going for the green! Jo x
