Holiday Gift Wrap Ideas by Kristen Fagan

Who doesn't love presents?!  I sure do!  I love giving, receiving and of course wrapping them! Today, I want to share with you some of my favorite beading inspired holiday gift wrapping ideas.

If you've got crafty friends, using craft supplies like beads, buttons and ribbon is a fantastic way to personalize their gifts and add to their supply stash! They can use the trimmings to make new things so, it's eco friendly too.

How great would this be with colored beading wire?!  I think the added pop of color would make this really stand out.  The "wire ribbon" could double as garland!

I love the addition of the bells and buttons on the above packages.  Great ideas for using up leftover beads and buttons. 

If you placed an order with Soft Flex Company this holiday season you should have received a Happy Holidays note with earring cards, shown above, for you to cut out and use for your holiday gifts. For more earring card designs and gift tags for you to print, check out our Free Art & Printables Packaging section online.

Jamie Hogsett wrote a lovely tutorial on how to create your very own origami box from paper.  If you need some festive paper to use we have free 8x10 holiday designs available for you to print in our Free Art & Printables Gift Wrap section online. 

Customer Organizing Tip!  Soft Flex beading wire spool clips are fantastic for keeping rolls of wrapping paper from unrolling. I know I’m totally going to use this tip, hope you find it helpful too! 

Many wishes for a very Happy Holiday! ~ Kristen

what fun examples you found Kristen! I'd never heard your tip about using old spool clips for wrapping paper and it's exactly the tip I need - thank you!
