Kraft paper packaging is one of the best bases to build on when you’re wrapping up your holiday gifts. Today Design Team Member Emily Spahn is showcasing quick and easy holiday gift wrap that starts with…you guessed it, kraft paper!
The holidays are a busy time! It seems like there is never enough time to accomplish everything you want and need to get done. Today, I have a quick and easy way to spruce up your holiday wrapping!
I started off with some plain kraft wrapping paper. A quick note, kraft paper and Scotch tape do not work well together!! When you tape down your paper, make sure you use your fingernail or a bone folder to press the tape down, or you’ll find yourself with a half-opened package! I tied a number of the American Crafts Peppermint Express ribbons around the bottom of each package. I used my Xyron gluestick to help adhere the ribbon in place!
I was planning on using my Silhouette to create some designs for my packages, but I decided that this was a bit too time-consuming for my “quick and easy” project, so instead I just used my paper trimmer and a couple of punches to create some simple decorations. I ran them all through my Xyron Create-a-Sticker machine and stuck them onto the kraft paper. This is a fun way to make your gifts stand out at the holidays without taking up precious cookie-baking or carol-singing time!

Please welcome Design Team Member Kathy Martin, who’s sharing a beautiful set of holiday gift wrap and tags.
It’s the holidays and you have cards to make and packages to wrap, but you forgot to buy a Christmas themed line of papers and accents to craft with! Oops! No worries, Pebbles’ has you covered!
The Front Porch collection has several patterned papers that make lovely snowflakes embellishments that you can do a lot with!
With a just a few supplies I already had on hand, I created these little snowflake boxes and decorated a plain white gift bag.
And just think of the pretty cards you can make decorated with snowflakes!
We love the handmade holiday gift tags Design Team Member Eva Pizarro has created. They’d be the perfect addition to any gift!
The collections from Pebbles are so versatile!
I used the reds, greys an greens from the From Me To You collection and mix them with gold to give my gift tags a festive look.
I also used my Roller Stamp to write the name of the person who will receive the gift, I stamped some common sentiments as well from those last minute gifts.
