Christmas gift wrapping and free printables 2014

Today is St. Lucia, which in Sweden always means big celebrations..
and Lussekatter, namely soft saffron buns with raisin. And candles,
of course, and songs and long white dresses for the girls.

And since St. Lucia is considered the official start of the Christmas season, 
here are some cute & simple gift wrapping ideas I found here and there.

Hope you'll love them!

Minimal: white or kraft paper with a tiny fir sprig on top (this one is from 79 Ideas)

Maybe with little variations, such as a leather cord..
(from Stocksy)

..or some splatter white paint that looks like snow (from Go Forth)

Twig + red felted berries + natural twine, from Rue Rococo
(I really love this one, and I suppose one could use
real berries, or beads or ponpons instead)

Sweet Paul Magazine is always a wonderful resource around Christmas,
so if you want a more festive result just pick some bright red paper and add tiny bells! :)

..or get some acrylic paint and create your own Scandinavian pattern!
(from last year's post here on Mijbil Creatures)

Oh, and easy DIY gift toppers from The House That Lars Built

And finally, lovely DIY wreath gift labels from Damask Love

Now up to the free printables part!

Beautiful gift tags from We Lived Happily Ever After

Free printable snow wrapping paper from MrPrintables

..and black and white boxes and tags from Studio DIY.

And in case you are looking for extra inspiration, here is my

Wish you a lovely Advent weekend! :)
