Blogmas Day 13 - Christmas Wrapping

This is going to be a slightly different post to my normal ones as I wanted to show you guys a little bit about me and my absolute love for present wrapping. I can't be the only one who simply loves making a present look amazing and wrapping them up perfectly?This year our colour scheme, don't ask my family always has a colour scheme, is red and gold. Last year we had pinks and coppers and Mum decided it was time to go traditional again. I must say at first I was a little dis-heartened we weren't going for my multi-colour idea but now I've found some cute wrapping pieces I am loving it!

The wrapping I got this year is from PaperChase as I find they do a great range of colours and designs so they will pretty much always do the colour scheme for our decorations. There paper is also great quality and doesn't rip when you're trying to wrap something awkward! I also tend to use brown paper a lot, especially when using decoration ribbons such as the Reindeer one picture (from Hobbycraft). I've also use brown paper as a base and then stamped Christmas pictures on top of before which makes a creative, original piece of wrapping paper.

I'm also lightly funny when wrapping 'soft' items. Whenever I buy slippers or PJ's I tend to wrap them in Tissue Paper first (red snowflake design from Card Factory) and then in paper before placing a ribbon around. I find this creates a barrier from the items being ripped and also makes it look a lot nice when being un-wrapped. However this does mean more mess on Christmas Day!

I tend to steer away from black pens when writing the tags so Gold and Silver metallic pens are a great way to keep them looking festive! The little stamps I recently picked up from my local Lidl and I must say I am over the moon with them! They are such great quality and give a personal effect to the tags. The set contained multiple little stamps as well as two large designs and different ink pads in a range of colours!

Keep an eye out on my snap chat for when we decorate the tree as I'm sure this colour scheme madness will then make more sense! I'll also show you how these look underneath and the little touches we add!
