The Martha Wrap

Martha has lots of great wrapping ideas in December Living. I love wrapping gifts. I only buy paper that coordinates with my tree, so that means it’s got to be pink, blue, green white, etc. This is a huge challenge for a holiday where everything is green and red.

I love to wrap creatively and always use lots of ribbons. I think it’s so boring when people wrap a gift and slap a bow on. I even know someone who doesn’t even bother with bows and I can’t imagine that.

I usually insist that my gift tags color coordinate with the wrapping paper. This year I’m cutting corners a bit and trying to use up my backlog of tags that may not exactly match (so please pardon any color faux pas you see).

Here is a gallery of some gifts I’ve wrapped – some with Martha-inspired ideas and others that are all mine.

    Thank you!! I really do enjoy it. I’ve still got lots to wrap here though:)

    One thing we joke about here is that I can wrap anything. I have wrapped a giant 4 1/2 foot tall dollhouse, a life-size Barbie, a Rescue Heroes battleship (assembled) and much more. WIth enough paper, tape, and patience, anything can be wrapped!
