gift wrap with mini flags via ANASTASIA MARIE

Those who have nightmare-ish experiences with wrapping paper, this is for you. To recreate this gift wrap idea, you’ll need the following supplies:

Kraft box
Glitter card stock in gold, bronze, and white
White glitter string

Scissors

Enclose your gift in the box and simply close the lid. That could be enough, but I don’t think so; glam it up! Cut out mini flags from the glitter card stock, varying them in length but keeping the width the same. String them in a random order (but pretty, of course) onto the glitter string and tie the loose ends of the string in the back. Done!

wedding stationery: simple leaf and type by ANASTASIA MARIE

This was the first set of custom wedding invitations I’d done since I took an extended break because of Henry. I had to come out of hiding for my sister’s wedding, right? I shot their engagement photos and had to conclude it by creating their invitation suite.

This set featured a simple leafy twig pattern and type. Printed on smooth creamy ivory paper with black ink and paired with shimmering gold envelopes, metallic gold/black twine, and black striped washi tape — this set came out just as I dreamed it up. You can view some of their wedding photos here.

gift wrap: pink bloom via ANASTASIA MARIE

I personally never liked the color pink, but when it comes to paper flowers, pink just seems to give the right amount of pop without going overboard. In this case, I’d call it the pink of peonies. To recreate this gift wrap idea, you’ll need the following supplies:

White and kraft polka dot wrapping paper (I found this one at Target)
Pink cardstock
Green cardstock
White iridescent twine
Gray shimmer paint

Double-sided tape
Scissors
Glue
Puff tape

Start by wrapping your gift with the wrapping paper and sealing with the double-sided tape. Take your twine and wrap it around the box a few times; secure in the back with a knot. Now take your pink cardstock and cut out three flower petal shapes. I chose a six petal silhouette and cut out all three in different sizes. It creates the best layered look that way. Secure them together with a dab of glue, layering them by size — and then dab a bit of your paint on top of the assembled flower in the middle to complete the bloom. Next, cut out a leaf silhouette from the green cardstock. Use puff tape to secure the leaf and the bloom onto the wrapped gift and now you’re ready to roll! If you wanted to, you can also add a burlap gift tag for the final finish.
