This will be my final post of the holiday gift guide and holiday decorating guide series. It's been lots of fun putting these together. When I decided to do a guide I had loads of ideas and intentions but alas, time ran out! and I haven't been able to post about everything I wanted (i.e I would like to have put together some ideas for decorating and making wreaths, and look at alternatives to traditional christmas trees and traditional decorating ideas). But this first series has given me plenty of inspiration and guidance for the next one, so this time next year, be sure to come back for more of the good stuff!
For now, let's finish up by wrapping our presents, shall we?
Above are two of my favourite finds for holiday gift wrap this year. Left is the most fabulous wrapping paper by earth greetings. It is made from chlorine-free, 100% post-consumer recycled paper, and is printed with vegetable ink. Made in Australia, AUS$4.50. For online stockists click here. More of earth greetings wrapping paper are also available online at pulp creative paper and biome.

1. the above mentioned tags, just can't get enough of them.
I love wrapping gifts in cloth - no sticky tape needed, no fussing - just some lovely vintage ribbon or string wrapped around and around to secure your wrapping et voilà! instant gift wrap that doubles as an extra gift. On the left, is the very stunning japanese flower printed cotton from Australian etsy seller japanese treasures. 50cm x 57cm, $3.90.
I love string! and beautiful beads. clockwise from top left:
1. & 2. natural string from baileys, various prices.
that's it my dear friends, that's. a wrap. :-)
I do hope you've enjoyed this series, and I hope you've found loads of great gifts for your friends and family (and you!), as well as found inspiration along the way. I could keep going! But there is much to do and share with you.
