You put so much time and thought into handmade gifts, why not take it a little further with handmade wrapping? Etsy is a great source for unique and one-of-a-kind gifts, and also gift packaging, and after the jump are a few of our favorite Etsy stores that sell unique, interesting and definitely pretty packaging to wrap up your gifts year-round.Shown above the jump from left to right:
1 Packagery and 2 KNOT & BOW: These two shops are very similar and are also probably our favorite packaging shops. They both have a very nice modern, neutral vibe with pops of color. Their focus is primarily on solids, rather than patterned items, and their stores are stocked with kraft paper goods, stickers, gift tag labels, bakers twine, ribbon, cards, glassine bags and they even sell packaging kits with everything you need to create a pretty package.
3 Caramelos Artful Supplies: Carmelos has a variety of options for packaging (and any other crafty project) but their shop's focus is on ways to tie up a package: twine, ribbon, and trim.
4 Hop Frog Pond: We've written before about the wonderful reusable wrapping that is Furoshiki. Furoshiki is a fabric swatch that is wraps around and ties up a gift, which then can be used over and over for future gift giving. Hope Frog Pond has a huge selection of patterns, each available in four sizes.
5 HappyHuismus: If you're looking for patterned packaging don't miss Happy Huismus' shop. Their collection of tags, stickers, giftbags and stationary have all been handstamped with custom indian and floral inspired designs. They also sell cute handpunched gift tags, handsewn envelopes, and colorful wrapping yarns.
