    I love brown paper gift wrapping.

    I found your blog off of Lena Corwin’s blog and wanted to say how much I liked these packages. I did this last year and got a little annoyed by how stiff the paper was, but now I’m tempted to switch back.

    I just bought a pack of holiday cards from madebygirl.com and they do a similar thing using kraft paper (100% recycled) and colorful hemp twine for the ties…really pretty.

    If you can’t use paper bags, butcher paper is a good alternative too.
