The holidays wouldn't be complete without presents.  
One of my favorite things about Christmas time is wrapping up gifts.  With that being said I never pay for wrapping or spend lots of money on them.   But that's not to say I have ugly presents sitting under my tree...no way!

Here's a great tip for fabulous looking presents that are easy and cheep to pull off!  

That's right
All you need is one awesome May Arts ribbon to make your presents look amazing!
 Here's a closer look at each different one

The diagonal ribbon with a simple tie

 The vertical malti-bow bow

Just one big beautiful bow on a box

The classic ribbon wrap and bow

Here's a link to the Grosgrain/scalloped edge ribbon I used.  Check out all the fabulous color they come in.
The wrapping is actually a kraft paper sheet and the white is freezer paper.
I added doilies to each one to bring them all together.

Okay now don't forget to comment because each one means an entry for awesome ribbon
Also If you haven't yet...head on over to the May Arts blog and check out all the details and amazing Holiday inspiration!

Pretty wrapping...love the lacy doilies & sweet ribbon and kraft paper! Would look great beneath a tree covered in snowflakes :)

Karen Wedding said...

Great wrapping job. I have always wanted to wrap all the presents in just brown paper and use different colored ribbons to disguinish each person gift, but have never done it. I do use ribbon a lot though on my packages.
