Creative Gift WrappingCreative Gift WrapFor those of you who came here last night to download your gift tags and wrap and found a big blue page. . . many apologies. Having the site down is a blogger’s biggest nightmare, but once I realized there was a problem (thanks to you who wrote me an alert note), we were able to remedy the issue quickly. Whew. Onward!

I am so loving the color, textures and patterns of these Sweet Summertime printables. Today I will show you my version of how I mixed and matched these with ribbons, twine and simple creative gift toppers. First of all, as a creative gift wrapper I am always on the lookout for pretty ribbons and unusual things to top a gift. Along with my stash of baker’s twine, (thanks to The Twinery), I have boxes of ribbons that I discover, buy and recycle. Every visit the fabric store finds me in the ribbon and trim aisle to scout out the newest goodies. Of course I always keep a few rolls of garden twine and natural cotton twine to add a bit of rustic to a gift.
