I love January! A new year, a fresh start, and a brand new color obsession. Thanks, Pantone for bringing  us 2017’s color of the year GREENERY. We love this serene shade of green and all that this hue stands for- nature, growth, and fresh new sprouts. It’s easy to incorporate this terrific tone into your gift wrap repertoire. Green goes with everything!

Real Life Gifting: Friends Christmas

gold

I have a few friends that we like to say “we have known each other since before we were born” because our moms met in college and are best friends to this day. Every year we do a Secret Santa that is color themed.  This year is yellow and we allowed gold to fall in that category too (thank goodness).   My gift this year goes to my friend and roommate, Emily! Emily recently bought a condo so I thought a few items to decorate her new place would be perfect!

And of course the wrapping has to match the theme too! I used our metallized brown kraft in Golden Dune as my base.  Tied our new Glitter Satin ribbon around and added 2 tags and a Lotus Bow.  The tags I used are our perennial favorite Luxe Gift Tags in gold glitter and then added a gold glitter Die-Cut Star for something extra!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!!
