{Coastal Christmas - Day 8} Wrap It Up, Coastal Style!

Turn on your favorite Holiday music, pour yourself a warm beverage, maybe a little snack and have fun wrapping up the treasures you found for loved ones.  That's right, you can have fun wrapping presents - it doesn't have to be tedious.

To keep it simple we purchased a large roll of Kraft paper* (newsprint also works and is a real bargain) to wrap all the boxes the same way.  We found some fun ornaments at a local Dollar Store, grabbed some cotton twine, wire edge ribbon {purchased on 100' roll for a bargain online} and various sized gift tags and starfish to create unique looks on each package.

Here's some of the coastal gift wrapping we came up with...

We had a really fun time wrapping our gifts this year and by wrapping everything in the same paper it made it quicker, as well as economical.  You can find Kraft rolls of paper at office supply stores like Staples or Office Depot and even Amazon.  The paper also works very well under craft projects {think about crafting with the kids!}. Don't forget...the beach life is about doing things in a simpler way, while enjoying yourself.

  1. Love the stamps! Where did you get the Mermaid stamp, it's great!

  2. So pretty. One problem - It's too nice to unwrap.

  3. The mermaid tags were found from a vendor on Etsy - very pretty and great price. Etsy has a ton of adorable coastal gift tags for sale. :O)

  4. That is such a cute idea! Love the starfish!

    Merry Christmas

  5. They all look so pretty! I think the kraft paper really makes everything else stand out so beautifully.

  6. OH, now isn't this just the most DARLING TAG, with that FISH!!! And of course the starfish are absolutely classic! Marie, thank you so much for stopping by my new post. There is just enough snow here to make it feel like the holidays, but not huge mounds....YET!

    Peace and beauty to you today!!! Anita
