If you're a little like me, you've probably left wrapping presents until the last minute! I asked a couple of arty friends for photos, plus gathered some extra inspiration online.
I think what works is a combination of pretty papers, ribbons/ ties, nice gift tags and some extra decorations. Handmade tags and papers always get a big extra tick from me!
Add some sparkles with glitter or sequins.
I love the eclectic look of this bowerbird style of wrapping by Deb Dorgan

I love the bauble- adding idea by Tijana and the hand painted cards.
Local artist Helen Timbury uses her excess printed papers as wrapping. I love this eco idea and the colour.

I hope you enjoyed that line up.
And I hope your Christmas tasks are running to schedule! This week we will be making some gingerbread, a few other dishes for Christmas day, and I will be slowing down with my work and enjoying ourselves a bit.
Hopefully the ideas have inspired you a little if you feel like getting a bit creative wrapping those last minute pressies.
