freebies: brown paper packages tied up on string + free printable valentine's tags.


i love gift wrapping. often, adding that little extra touch makes the package even more special. there's nothing more lovely than a simple brown paper package wrapped up in your favourite twine embellished with a delightful detail.

i've rounded up a collection of little embellishments from my craft cabinet along with wrapping ideas and a free printable set of valentine's tags. when it comes to wrapping, i like to keep it simple but unique.  i love to add texture, a pop of colour, and a little sparkle never hurts!

here are a few ideas of embellishments you can collect and store in your wrapping supplies...








i used the thin dowels along with glitter cardstock triangles, feathers and twine to make tiny little arrows. these made adorable toppers on the cardstock polka dot boxes i found in the party section at target for a dollar!



and, i embellished the gift tags with my favourite gold washi tapes from confetti & sparkle party shop and glitter paper for an added pop of colour and texture!
