Although I've purged a lot of goodies from my studio over the past few months I am planning to bring with me to Korea some basic supplies like a big roll of kraft paper. I'm not a huge store bought wrapping paper fan, although there are many pretty options out there I think they are a little pricey. So as long as I have my trusty kraft paper I can add a few details to keep it interesting. This gift is my nephew's Christmas present. I printed out his name on to white sticker paper, cut it into a long strip and wrapped it around the gift. I then added several dot stickers. This style of packaging is fun for the boys to be involved with as well since what kid doesn't love to play with stickers?

A few lovely links:

1. A big thanks to my dear friend Bonnie for asking me to write a post on her blog answering the question "How do you prepare for hibernation?" You can read my post here.

2. Did you see the new HOLIDAY shimmer collection by SCARFSHOP? It is so beautiful. The amazing photographs were taken by Bonnie Tsang.

3. Joke and I are honored to be participating in the Martha Stewart's The Crafts Dept. Gift Wrap Challenge. We are in some mighty fine company with Something's Hiding In Here, Hello Sandwich and Creature Comforts. Our post will be up on Tuesday and we cannot wait to share what we came up with!

Have a wonderful weekend!

great tip on wrapping gifts! Jus curious to know where can I get some quality kraft paper? Also, do they come in various tones? I just wish they were a little darker in color.

B'S MOMMY // Your local paper store will probably carry it. You can also check Uline or Paper Mart online.
