Like the song says, I am a sucker for brown paper packages tied up in string. They happen to be some of my favorite things. Last year, I wrapped all of my packages this way and my younger brother made fun of me (ask him how he wraps his presents…ha!) so I decided to add some pizzaz to my wrapping this year and make thing pop. To do so, I popped on over to Hallmark Gold Crown.
I think I have been pretty clear that Hallmark has it all when it comes to the holidays. They totally hit it out of the ball park when it came to my Christmas Cards and they didn’t disappoint with the wrapping paper either. I wanted to mix and match metallics with something classic and Hallmark more than delivered (they even had some brown paper too which mixed in with the metallics looks amazing!).If you know me, you may also know this fact. While I typically get my Christmas shopping done early (and I have), I lolly gag when it comes to wrapping. I enjoy wrapping one present but ten or twenty? No. But when I got home, I went on a wrapping spree because I found so many ways to mix it up with what I bought.The pretty wrapping paper inspired me to take my time and not rush the process. I enjoyed choosing which paper combinations would go with which present for each person. I love the classic richness of the Christmas Floral paper I chose with the fun metallics.I even got creative, as I am wont to do, because I was inspired by the paper. I used a page from a book I have multiple copies of to cut out a tree (tutorial coming soon…I am making garland…) and made a homemade tag for my friend. I feel like it adds a personal touch that’s charming against the grown up wrapping paper.Hallmark Gold Crown has not let me down this holiday season. I cannot wait to finish my Hallmark has it all and get them in the mail. And I cannot wait to pass out these presents and watch people’s faces as they open them. But I have to admit, I will dearly love the look of them under my tree until Christmas.How is your holiday shopping going? Have you popped into a Hallmark lately?
