gift wrapping

I'm not quite finished wrapping yet, but here is a little taste of how I'm doing it this year
I wanted the wrapping paper to be simple so I chose a plain brown and dressed it up with some off-white yarn and those adorable medallions inspired by these at Design Dazzle

I just printed each person's name, cut them into circles, and glued them to circles of the same size cut out of index cards to make them a little bit sturdier. You could also just print them on cardstock and save the extra step. That font is Curlz.

The best part ~ besides how cute I think it looks ~ is that I already had everything I used! All I had to do was print the names and assemble everything. I enjoy wrapping gifts anyway, but this year it was fun to do something a little bit different than the usual printed paper and bows I've done most other years just because it's fast and easy. The medallions took a little bit of time to make, but other than that this really wasn't that much more time consuming and it looks so much cuter!
