Natural, rustic, and refined...Just the way I like it!
Here is your cool wrapping paper again. Use leftovers for your garden in the spring.
Your ribbon. Who needs fancy when you can have this?
Wrap your package and add the brown tree wrap. I used some vintage twine as well.
Oooops! I guess this is a quadfecta (I made that up). I also used the twine to tie on the crystals. I love throwing in a touch of unexpected bling.
OK, now shes ready for some nature.
Slip in some greens and a sole little pinecone.
I used Cedar because its flat allowing it to drape well and then there is my new best friend the Blueberry Juniper. I dont even like blue, but this little berry has my heart. Go figure!
The arial view. I flew over the package in my tiny helicopter.
Its a wrap! And I mean that...youll see no more Christmas wrapping from me this year. Its time for me to start packing for vacation!

I love natural craft paper for Christmas gifts, but this paper is one step better. It looks almost like art paper and makes for a very sophistimacated package.

capawajunker writes: I used to do this in the 70's, but not to your extent. Still have some of the twine so will get busy and utilize your ideas in my own way. Plan to do up fake pkgs for under our tree. Have to mail everything elsewhere so will do it just for us. Will take pix and send along. Thanks & Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all.
