So...here is this year's Christmas wrapping! The top two photos are my wrapping and the other two are my friend Eko's - beautiful, no?
In keeping with my alpine theme, and my obsession with stamps, I've used my deer potato stamp on my wrapping, which is just basic kraft paper. The white ribbon is cotton herringbone, which I bought wholesale (along with the paper - one of the perks of being in this business!), and the green and white strip is washi tape (Japanese masking tape), which I bought online from here. I'm absolutely loving washi tape at the moment and bought some for Eko for Christmas, too!
The red ribbon on Eko's wrapping is also cotton herringbone and the little circles are made from pieces of felt and cotton with a hand-stitched letter - impressive! Inside my "A" package was a box with about six individually-wrapped presents, each with a little stamped number, which she did using these MUJI stamps (how anyone lives without these, I just don't know!).
We exchanged these presents on Sunday at our annual Christmas barbeque at the South Perth foreshore, which we all agree is our favourite part of Christmas! Afterwards, Eko, mum and I went to Carols by Candlelight, so it was a day full of Christmas spirit!
