Holiday Gift Wrapping with Doilies

Have you started your holiday shopping? What about holiday gift wrapping? I have started both as I don’t want to be overwhelmed by these tasks as the Holidays approach.

I hardly ever buy gift wrapping paper as there are so many materials in my home that can be used for that purpose.

For instance, I used a brown paper bag to wrap these three presents. I added small doilies and a few other simple decorations that I found in my storage box labeled “Christmas Decor”. And voila! The presents are now awaiting their recipients.

The symbol chart for this doily can be found in my old post here.

And you can see the symbol charts for the other two tiny doilies here (designs 1 and 2). 

For those of you in the USA, please check out my tabletop fountain giveaway on my other blog.
