The cards themselves are lovely, glossy and thick too. You get to add a greeting inside and a message on the back too.
And I also snuck a few more papery bit in to the order to make our gifts a little bit more special under the tree. Our tree is covered in red and white and silver so I thought I’d carry the red theme through and compliment it with a bit of craft brown too.
My first stops were tags that I adorned with this adorable little winter scene in a bottle on them, and some tissue paper covered in stars. I love that I got to design them to compliment my Christmas theme.
One of my favourite items is the Flash wrapping paper. I used the same image as the card but it’s repeated across 6ft of paper and is just magnificent. This paper is going to be saved for our parents gifts because it is just so special!
I then discovered envelope stickers. What could be lovelier than a sticker to seal your envelope that lets people know that you’re sending a Christmas card, not a bill? I went with a beanie and mittens design from the same collection as the stars and winter in a bottle. I adore them.
And I also added some wreath gift stickers to my order too to help me hold the gifts together.
Along side the bits I created, I picked up some double sided gift wrap from Ikea and some red and white washi tape from Ikea. I can’t wait for my gifts to start arriving so I can get going with the wrapping and the tree to be picked so that they can take their pride of place under it.
What are your gift wrapping must haves?
