gift wrap: golden star via Anastasia Marie

Stars have been a constant theme for Christmas time, so I think it’s just to put a star-inspired gift wrap post up. Once again, I have favored kraft and gold but this time I added hints of black and white. Packaging supplies needed (besides the scissors and tape) are listed below:

kraft box with lid (I found this one at TJ Maxx last year)
Gold glitter paper (any craft store should carry this)
Glittery clothespin
Metallic twine (the twine shown here are all from Knot & Bow)

Using various colored twine, wrap the box twice around with each color and secure each strand with a knot on the bottom of the box. Hand draw a crooked star on the back of the glitter paper and cut it out. Don’t try to be crooked; it’ll come naturally as you hand draw. For the final touch, pin the star on top of the box with the glitter clothespin. Use star as a mini tag if you’d like.

This card was custom created to intentionally giggle about someone lugging their iMac to a coffee shop. What else are friends for than to giggle about such things, right?

On the first day of November, we had our family photos taken. Really wish we had done one of these sessions when Henry was a firstborn too. Love getting his cute face captured. These photos were done by The Manchiks and there are just way too many good ones to choose from. Here are my faves:

By the time we hit the outdoors, Henry was 99% tuckered out. There was absolutely nothing we could do to get more than half a smile out of him. So yes, he has his little spaced out look in pretty much all the photos. I love them just the same though.

premature twins // custom card // via Anastasia Marie

This card was custom created for a friend to give to a couple who had just given birth to a set of identical premature girls. The card showcased the mom + dad each holding one of their little girls (and yes, those little girls have mini bows in their hair — unrealistic at this point, but it looked much more cuter that way).

Born at 25 weeks and weighing just over a pound, the little ladies are fighting hard. I’ve also been told that a GoFundMe account has been set up for this new family. If you’d like to help cover some of the hospital expenses, I’m sure every penny would be most appreciated.

holiday christmas gift wrap // gold flecked  // via Anastasia Marie

The majority of us crafters today have a roll of washi tape somewhere, right? This gift wrap idea requires just a few items to get this look. And if you’re not digging the gold, you could always go with lots of other colors and still look incredible. You could either stay monotone (like I did with the gold), or you can coordinate colors like green + silver or red + gold for a more spunky look. Packaging supplies needed (besides the scissors and tape) are listed below:

Light brown kraft wrapping paper (the one I used is from Target)
Gold washi tape
Gold glitter string
Mini wooden gift tag

After wrapping your gift up with the kraft wrapping paper, rip off pieces of the gold washi tape and scatter over the top of the package and cascade several pieces down each side. A trick to make wooden gift tags reusable is to stick a piece of washi tape onto the tag and use that as your writing surface. Wrap the glitter string around the box, tie the loose ends together on top in a bow, secure the gift tag, and voila! All that’s left is to write the name on the tag and you’re ready to go.
