Make Stuff Monday: Quick Christmas gift-wrapping using stuff you have at home

Hello friends! How are your Christmas preparations coming along? I did some gift-wrapping this weekend....the quick and easy way, using stuff I have at home.:)

I got a couple of books that needed wrapping and I did contemplate actually buying some Christmas wrapping paper but decided to challenge myself to use stuff I already had at home. So I went for my brown packaging paper as the base and cut some Christmas scrapbooking paper (*high fives those who have lots of Christmas-themed scrapbooking paper in their stash*) as the mat for some simple embellishing.

Since these were all going into a large decorated Christmas box (*you know how extra I am...winks*), I kept the design flat and minimal. I adhered the patterned paper to the base using washi tape so that the recipient can reuse the packaging. I finished with a strip of vintage Christmas sticker.

I used the same supplies for all 3 books for an overall cohesive look and feel but just varied the way I used the supplies to differentiate them slightly.

I am pretty happy that some of the older Christmas-themed patterned papers finally got to see the light of the day. *hahaha*

Here they are all together. :)

Happy week ahead friends!

P/s: I was travelling last week so I will play catch-up on your blogs this week. :)

These are beautiful, and I love the whole idea of using what you have on hand. So festive and fun, and using the washi tape to keep things removable was just brilliant!

These are beautiful! I have plenty of Christmas gift wrap, but I still may dig into the scrapbook paper stash for wrapping this year. Thanks for the inspiration!
