gift wrapping ideas & a giveaway from Scotch (R)



Thanks to Scotch(R) Double Sided Tape for sponsoring my writing about crafts. Add your comment below to be entered for a chance to win free sample rolls to help with your upcoming holiday needs.



One of my favorite parts of giving gifts is the wrapping. I tend to be drawn to a more homemade version of wrapping paper, and this year is no different. And it doesn't get much simpler than this!
To make your packages stand out in a crowd, here are the supplies you will need:



newspaper (or brown craft paper works well too)
Scotch (R) Tape or Scotch (R) Double Sided Tape
Baker's Twine (mine is from the Twinery)
holiday tags (mine are from Joyful Joyful)
scissors





























1. wrap your gift with newspaper
2. seal it up with Scotch(R) Tape or Scotch (R) Double-Sided Tape
3. flip it over
4. measure out your baker's twine to wrap around your box
5. cut three lengths of baker's twine
6.wrap all 3 pieces of twine around together as you would a ribbon
7. tie a bow
8. pick out a gift tag
9. attach the tag to the twine

voila! cute and crafty gift wrapping for the holidays!
you can also use these pretties as decoration! we have a pile of presents sitting on a table in our entry way along with a mini christmas tree and some other holiday decor.


Want a sample of Scotch (R) Double Sided Tape for your holiday wrapping? Comment below and be entered to be one of 10 winners to receive a roll compliments of 3M. Winners will be chosen Friday, December 3rd.


Please learn more about Scotch(R) Double Sided Tape and other Scotch(R) Products, and join the conversation on the Scotch(R) Brand Facebook Page and via Twitter . I was selected for this sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective , which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do.

I too am a wrapping nut. Double sided type looks sooooo much more professional than regular type.

This is such a cute idea! I always try to make my gifts look like a little work of are under the tree before they're completely ripped apart, and this is a great way how!

I love this idea! I think it would be great to use the comic section for kids packages!
I am always running out of tape at this time of year. Everyone needs an extra roll or two!

Love the idea's you have, double sided tape would keep the kiddies from peaking....

I love the idea of reusing something that is already on hand. Will definitely need to get some twine. Tape is always handy.

How cute! Newspaper wrapping is always a favorite at our house and those letters really add a fantastic touch! What a great blog!

I like your aesthetic! Especially like how you tripled up the baker's twine to give it more 'oomph'. And how cool you're being sponsored! Definitely curious now...off to check out CleverGirls.
