Merriment :: Wrapping ideas for baby and kids by Kathy Beymer

Today I popped by my friend Anne’s to drop off gifts for five-year-old son, Gavin, and her newborn son, Graham. I recycled and altered my chalkboard gift tags idea to wrap Gavin’s birthday treat.

Supplies:

Wrap your gift with the red tissue paper. Cut a strip of the yellow tissue paper and fold each side towards the middle to make a stripe. Wrap the yellow strip around the gift and tape. Cut a square of the chalkboard cloth fabric and tape to the top of the box. Write on the gift using chalk.

Anyone else sick of wrapping baby gifts in yellow, baby blue and pink? I wrapped baby Graham’s tie baby onesie bodysuit and U2 lullaby renditions (for longtime fan Anne) using orange tissue paper and a bright blue silk ribbon …a classic complementary color pairing.

    Hi Charissa, that sounds great, glad you are sharing my gift wrapping ideas with your readers. I checked out your blog and giggled when I saw your entry about castile soap. We recently went to a bed and breakfast that had castile soap so we now have Dr. Bronner’s in the bathroom. Smells great!

    Hi Kathy -

    I love these ideas! It’s always a pleasure to run into another gift wrap enthusiast.

    I’m writing a blog about gift wrapping (http://thegiftedblog.wordpress.com) and am working on a compilation of kids’ gift wrapping ideas. I just read your intro and that it’s alright to use your images – thank you! I will link back to your site and look forward to sharing your work with my readers.

    Sincerely,
    Charissa
