One of my “favorite things” to wrap gifts year-round is brown kraft paper with bakers twine or garden twine. When I was asked to get creative with holiday labels from Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery that are available at Staples stores, I decided to pair them with these favorites. And what fun I did have. First I created and printed my labels starting with the name tags. Avery’s site has it down with their online editor letting you add your names right into the template and printing onto the decorative sheets. I then created a coordinating set of woodland friend stickers to dress up the packages. You can download these at the end of the post and print them onto 1.5″ Avery circle labels. Gathering all of my materials I wrapped my boxes in the kraft paper. One look I really like is to completely crinkle the paper before I wrap the box. You can follow along in the tutorial below on some fun ideas for decorating the kraft wrapped boxes. This is a great project to share with your kids. I have also included a Silhouette template for the tiny snowflakes I used for both the boxes and the mini tree decor. I cut these from a metallic white paper to add a touch of shimmer. Enjoy! ~ Lia (NOTE: The Silhouette template if for the Cameo Silhouette cutting machine and can not be opened or used any other way. Those who have the machine understand what to do with it),
