I love how repackaging a gift with a few simple materials can create a visually appealing treat for the recipient. Although I think pretty packaging is not limited to a season or special occasion, I know many of you will start thinking about wrapping holiday gifts in the coming weeks. Over the next few weeks I will be sharing some simple packaging ideas, that will hopefully inspire you to think outside the box when it comes to gift wrapping.
While opening up a box provides an element of surprise to the recipient, I love using translucent vellum paper in my packaging projects. To reflect the minimal and clean aesthetic of this Daniel Wellington Classic Sheffield Lady watch in Rose Gold, I created a simple wood veneer gift tag, inspired by a project in my book, Pretty Packages. I attached the watch to a piece of kraft cardstock, using a punch and twine, and created a vellum sleeve that the watch slides into. I painted the corner of the wood veneer gift tag, using washi tape and acrylic paint, and added a letter sticker with the first initial of the recipient. Wrap the gift tag around the package with some twine and you are ready to give your friend or loved one a pretty little package.
