  1. Looking for a different way to gift wrap your presents this year? Try using brown paper instead of expensive wrapping paper. It is easily available and SO eco friendly. In this project I used tons of lace to decorate my packages. You can easily find lace at garage sales and by combining lace and brown paper you get a very romantic gift wrapping option. Here are a few simple ideas for you try.

  2. Ruffle a long length of lace and wrap it around your brown paper wrapped gift. Add a bow or tag if desired.

  3. Are you bringing cookies as a hostess gift? Try packaging them in a brown bag and add a lace bow on top.

  4. To create a slit for the lace to pass through, I used a border punch, which adds such beauty to the bag. You can use any border punch you have in your stash, just center the bag on the punch (as seen in photo above), and punch once in the center.

  5. Decorate a jewelry box by simply tying a lace around it and adding a few scrap lace ties to make a bow. Add a punched out scallop as a tag if desired.
