Christmas 2012 Gift Wrap

This year's theme:  Brown paper packages tied up with string, These are a few of my favorite things!  Yes, the song from the Sound of Music!!  (To see last year's theme, click HERE.)  

This year, I wanted them to look like mail packages because who doesn't like to get a package in the mail?!?  The wrapping paper was sturdy brown shipping paper I purchased from OfficeMax or Office Depot.  I get them mixed up but it was a general office store.  You get the idea.  I had some crimson and cream string left over from Mark's birthday party (originally came from Hobby Lobby).  I also purchased some mint/cream patterned masking tape because I'm still obsessed with red and mint and it was perfect for writing who the gift was to.  And finally, I made postage images (stamps, "fragile,"postmarks, etc) in Photoshop and printed on full size label paper then cut so they would stick to the packages.  Fun, right?!
