brown paper packages tied up with string

These are a few of my favorite things...
Following the tradition I began last year, I decided to wrap all my Christmas presents with brown kraft paper. Why? Well, it's cheaper to buy two rolls of brown paper than multiple rolls of Christmas paper. I also like the monochromatic look and brown paper is the perfect palette to dress up your presents just a little. I bought several sheets of patterned scrapbook paper, some gold glitter gift tags, and a ball of brown and white striped yarn. 
First, I wrapped up all my boxes in brown paper and tied each with a string. I found a reindeer silhouette via google search and used it to trace tons of tiny reindeer onto the scrapbook paper. Then I cut them out and glued a reindeer to each package. It was an easy and fun wrapping project- finished during one Christmas movie session!
