Wrapping gifts beautifully- #pindoit for Olive Dragonfly

I was delighted to write a guest post for Bex at The Olive Dragonfly while she's away enjoying a fabulous holiday in Thailand... lucky thing! 

I love the idea of #pindoit, as I have so many wonderful projects marked on Pinterest, and never get round to doing them. As luck would have it, this is a busy gift-giving time for me, so I chose to try a series of pins, on creative gift-wrapping ideas. 
My beautifully-wrapped offerings!
Wrapping a gift thoughtfully can instantly add luxury, giving the "wow" factor to the smallest of presents. You needn't spend much money either- these wrapping methods actually cost less than buying gift bags and fancy wrapping paper. For my #pindoit projects, I used brown parcel paper, costing only 50p for 3 metres, bits and bobs from my craft stash, and recycled materials.

Pop over to The Olive Dragonfly to see more pictures, find the original Pinterest links, and read about how I created each of these wrapping styles. 


  1. I like the brown paper gift wrap with the colorful decorations. So cute!

  2. Gorgeous! I love all of these! Isn't kraft paper just the best? Thanks so much for linking up at Thursday STYLE! Have a great week :)

  3. The bunting looks really cute!
