This week you will be seeing a bunch of pretty gift wrap ideas for your holiday presents here on Circus Berry. Today, it is all about simple. So, do you want to dress up a present with practically no effort at all?
Here is what you do. Grab a roll of solid wrapping paper. Buy a package of snowflake ornaments (I got mine at Home Depot…less than 3 dollars for a package of twenty). Then grab some thin silk ribbon in a coordinating color. Oh, and don’t forget your simple circle tag.
Wrap your present all neat. Put a snowflake in the middle…or the side, or the corner. Wrap the ribbon around a couple of times and finish with a square knot.
Then stick your tag under some of the ribbon.
Isn’t that so simple and pretty?
If you are unfamiliar with a square knot or how to tie one, check out the “How to Tie a Knot” tutorial on Paper Source. You will have it in no time!
Last weekend I had the great opportunity to work with Tiny Prints on a little gift-wrap party at my house. I will be sharing the event and all of the details this week, along with some great gift wrap ideas courtesy of a few fabulous and talented contributors. To kick off this week of wrap, I thought I’d share some ideas to get you inspired.
Check it out some of these fun ways to pretty your presents!

Sometimes I head into a DIY thinking, “This will take me no time at all”. Then I am amazed at the “no time” it actually takes. This is one of those.
I wanted to do something cute and unique for the kids’ classroom Halloween treats…especially with concerns of allergies and even more because these are the little things that I love and that they love and that they will care less about eventually (all…”MOM! You’re embarrassing me!”).
I have a stash of these muslin bags that are just the perfect size for a single dum-dum and some stickers (both from the Dollar Tree…score!). Oh, and the stamps are from the dollar bin at Michaels. You can find these little bags at The TomKat Studio, Shop Sweet Lulu, or Sucre Shop.
Ink, stamp, ink, stamp, ink, stamp…fill…done!
It’s so easy I myself can’t even believe it!
