Classic Monochromatic Gift Wrap

It’s hard to believe Christmas is exactly one week away. While some of my gifts are still trickling in, I’ve began my gift wrapping process… which is one holiday task I thoroughly enjoy.

If you’re hunting for an easy or beginner sewing project this winter- or for your holiday decor… this cozy faux fur lumbar pillow is one to save and try!

Tonal Gift Wrap

Setup Your Workspace


Heavy kraft paper, silky satin ribbon in a rich chocolate tone, and crisp corners are all I felt my gifts needed this season.


Paper & Ribbon Pairings

Some of these aren’t the exact tone, but I think playing around to find your preferred color combo is half the fun.

Wrapping Tools

Setup Your Workspace


My system and winning combination has always been simple: scissors, clear tape, heavy paper, pretty ribbon, and a slow methodical mindset.

I usually end up cutting my ribbon too short or too long, so depending on the length- I work with what I have. I make tape rolls to hide on the inside of the paper, instead of exposed tape on top.

I hope your week is off to a good start and you’re feeling excited and hopeful this holiday season!
