The Gift Wrap Extravaganza............. the Brights

Those Aussie girls love their colour and use it so beautifully. Designer Anna Spiro of Absolutely Beautiful Things did what designers love to do when it comes to gift wrapping.........tie strips of fabric into beautful bows. You wouldn't miss these under the tree. 

The fabric BoBo Wraps  have been on my must-blog-about list for a bit and don't they make gift wrapping sense? Love the colours and the wrap that keeps on giving. They come complete with the tie-ups and in different sizes, patterns, and solid colours. May I mention that they are a stylish godsend to the gift wrapped impaired?

Those fun baubles to tie up the fabric wraps are called Bungees.

Better Homes & Gardens just goes to show how much fun gift wrapping can be when you take your time and play around with bits of this and that. 

Source found and it is the uber-talented ribbon master Nicholas Kniel from a Traditional Home feature.........but will be back to add the direct link. 

It would't be a bright Christmas without at least this popular gift wrapped image from Carolyne Roehm. Don't you miss her gift wrapped splendor? I do.

  1. Gorgeous pics! That boho wrap is genius, and so bright and pretty.

    Carolyne Roehm's work is amazing. Always a delight.

    By the way, the source of that photo with the peacock feather is Nicholas Kniel as seen in Traditional Home Magazine. (I featured this on my blog last Christmas as part of my Mall-Free, Hassle-Free Holiday Shopping Guide)

    Kniel also has a beautiful book called "Ribbon: The Art of Adornment" which you would love.

  2. Wow! It's all too pretty to unwrap!

  3. Beautiful wrapping, Sande. I am headed to Bobo Wraps now.

  4. Goodness, Sande, I love all of these, but those fabric wraps are to D.I.E. for! I just bought some shiny hot pink paper and very wide wired ribbon to work with this weekend. Did navy & purple last night and it looked beautiful. What wonderful inspiration, darling...
