I want to focus on my artsy and upcycled jewelry and ornaments for a more cohesive store.

Two Creative and Simple Gift Wrapping Ideas

By BluKatDesign on Etsy


Even some of us creative types have a hard time wrapping presents!   I like to use decorative bags, so easy you just wrap the items in tissue then toss in a bag and tie a bow! To make it more special you can repurpose on old ornament or buy a special handmade ornament from BluKatDesign on Etsy and find a fancy a fancy tag! Last year I discovered boxes with prints like the one pictured above, these make wrapping so simple!
