More Christmas Wrapping Ideas: Burlap

My sister gave me a bunch of extra burlap scraps from her burlap wreath project.  They have been sitting in my closet for over a year, so I finally dug them out and decided to use as embellishments for wrapping my gifts.  As I mentioned in my previous post, I love using craft paper as wrapping paper.  It provides such a neutral base for wrapping.

I used ribbon and my salt dough gift tags to dress up the burlap.  I even attempted to make a burlap rose for one of the gifts.  All in all I love the way it turned out.

This one is my favorite wrapping.  Simply fold over the burlap and secure in the middle with bakers twine to make
 a big bow.  Add the salt dough gift tag, and viola, how cute is that?
