A simple and elegant gift wrap idea. Today’s inspiration is not original or complicated, but I have been waiting to share it for an entire year. I wrapped the girls’ gifts like this last Christmas, after their year-long infatuation with The Nutcracker. In their favorite version, many of the gifts are wrapped in black paper with elegant velvet ribbons. I like keeping the color scheme limited – for these gifts, I used only pinks, reds, and grey. I love the idea of doing all blues and greens and light grey.
You still have time to recreate this look (thanks to Amazon). All you need is black wrapping paper and velvet ribbon. We have this big pack of velvet ribbon in lovely, bright colors. However, the pieces aren’t very long, so if you are wrapping a large present or want a large bow, try these gorgeous, 10-yard spools. That’s it! Happy wrapping!
