Pretty Present

I'm all about aesthetics.  To me, I want things to give (and receive!) presents that are as pretty as the gifts inside.  I was inspired by these presents to create a pretty little gift to give.

Just wrap your present with butcher paper.  (I love keeping this on hand, it's so versatile and creates a pretty palette for almost anything!).  Lay a sheet of rectangle (or circle) dolly  on top and tape/glue it down.  Adorn with a pretty little bow and viola. 
 Cute and easy.


  1. Ooh these are gorgeous! I wish I was better at gift wrapping.

  2. How pretty! I am terrible at wrapping presents but this looks fairly simple but so pretty!

  3. what a great way to make something look so nice, yet so easy to do! I always wrap my gifts in recycled brown paper - sometimes Trader Joe's bags ;) And this would be a great way to pretty it up a bit.

  4. i love when things are wrapped up all pretty!
    i'm a big fan of butcher/craft paper... i use it all the time!!

  5. I'm so bad at wrapping gifts and making them pretty! this is a gorgeous idea! I need to practice so I can get better! <3
