For multiple reasons, we've often turned to kraft paper for wrapping gifts. Either we have it on hand when we need wrapping paper, we prefer its natural appearance to something more glitzy, or it's plain enough to allow us some creative input when wrapping gifts. For whatever reason, kraft paper can work quite well into Christmastime uses, from gift wrapping to home decorating. Here are a few ideas:
• 1 a handmade stocking-shaped bag, via Sweet Tidings
• 2 a neutral backdrop for more eye-catching ribbons, via Footprint Fundraising
