brown paper packages with painted on string

I love crafty things, but I’m not a very creative gift wrapper. I always go for simple. And what can get simpler than presents wrapped with brown paper and painted on black string?!

I paint the crisscross portion on first, then top it off with the painted bow… voila!

If you any of you have ordered from my Cakies shop in the past, you know I used to send off packages decorated this way, but done with black marker. It’s cute and easy, and so that’s how our Christmas presents are decorated this year. To label, I have some shipping tags that I will write names on, and tape onto the top of each gift. The paper gets ripped off so fast (then put into the recycle bin), so I’m very practical about my gift wrapping. Plus, it’s what’s on the inside the counts right?! ;) And don’t forget the thought counts most! :)

How do you decorate your gifts? Do you go all out or are you a simple gift wrapper like me?

    Loooooove! Super cool and simple. If you’d like to add some color, maybe some pom poms for toppers?

    I love this!! I’m also a simple wrapper… for last few years, I’ve wrapped presents in tissue paper (enough layers so contents are see-thru) and tie with some bakers twine. Both materials are easy to stock up and purchase “bulk”.
