Natural herbs have become my best friends! You can see how I've played with their delicate hues and intricate designs here and here. Now I thought of celebrating their beauty by incorporating them into a subtle gift wrapping in the same color. Here they are: monochrome gifts!
There are several ways you can apply the dried herbs while keeping a minimalist appearance of the gift wrap, as you can see in the photos below:
Just wrap the gift box in soft lavender and put the twig on top. Secure the gift with a single line of wool.
For the black gift wrapping I used a little bit of black washi tape to keep the berries on top of the box.
Or you can tie together two twigs with thread, then add a drop of glue onto the craft paper gift wrapping!
The monochrome gift wrapping is super-easy to make if you stick to these simple rules:
1. Choose your natural twigs and berries first, then find color-coordinated paper in similar shades.
2. Use little or no yarn at all (same goes for ribbon, tags or other embellishments).
3. Less is more - don't overcrowd the gifts. But you can be as creative as you can :) Enjoy!
