When I look at this photo, I can hear Julie Andrews sweet voice, “Brown paper packages tied up with strings; these are a few of my favorite things.” What’s not to love about pretty gift wrapping?
One of the latest trends all over Pinterest is using simple kraft paper with classic black ribbon. With this basic formula, there are dozens of possibilities with Nashville Wraps packaging. Just take a kraft bag or box and add any style of black ribbon and you can’t go wrong with this elegant yet understated look.
You can add a touch of holiday cheer by adding an evergreen sprig, pine cones or jingle bells. This is also a great look for wedding gifts and party favors. All the products we used were tied with a simple bow, so they are super easy to put together. Many of the kraft products are made from 100% recycled paper and part of our Green Way Collection of eco-friendly products.
