D is for (Package) Decorations

Are you ready for another round of Alphabe Thursday? Let's go!

Yep, it's Alphabe Thursday on Friday, and it's going to be a short and sweet. Anyone who has received a gift from me in the past few years knows that I am notoriously lazy when it comes to wrapping presents. I'm not very good at it, and I hate that most wrapping paper ends up right in the garbage. It seems like such a waste. So typically I buy a pack of tissue paper, stuff presents into old gift bags and shopping bags, write recipient names on leftover card making paper scraps, and call it good.

I put a lot of effort into the gifts themselves (is it a surprise that I always make a number of gifts?), and needless to say, the wrapping doesn't reflect that effort. So I'm stepping it up this year and going with a "brown paper packages tied up with string" theme that includes reusable decorative items and fun little goodies, like candy and ornaments. The following reveals just a little taste of what's to come. I will do my best to get some pictures of my wrapped presents later this month.

Check out what the other Alphabe Thursday participants posted for the letter D this week right here!


  1. I like the little flowers - they're cute! I'm a lazy present wrapper too. I usually buy baskets and put my presents in them {:-D

  2. I love the button flowers and the art pegs - great idea - I just wish I had the patience to make them myself!!

  3. All very pretty and so festive. xo Catherine

  4. Very creative! I like your ideas!

  5. I think you have a really good idea there. I agree, the pile of torn wrapping paper that gets stuffed into the trash is a waste.

  6. Very cool! I really like those clothespins and look forward to seeing them in action. I have to admit I haven't done much of anything with wrapped presents this year. I don't even have tags on three that are sitting in the living room right now!

  7. Oh boy!

    How delightful!

    These are so clever and wonderful!

    They would make any package delicious!

    Thanks for linking to the letter D.

    Happy New Year
