wrap it up.

Oh boy! It’s that time of year- time to wrap up pretty little gifts with the most adorable packaging! Darby Smart teamed up with Gap to create a gift wrapping set, and as a Darby designer I got a sneak peek to get the party started. (Yasss!) It’s full of all the things to add a handmade touch to any gift.  – Get your own here!


The kit comes complete with kraft paper, a set of gift tags by Darby designers, wooden tags, candy cane bakers twine, silver sparkle decorative tape, and a silver marker. And if you’re like me, you consider the shredded paper filler part of the kit, too!


First off, can I say that I looooove kraft paper. It’s simple and clean, but has so much potential and can be dressed up in so many ways. Here, I’ve just added a wooden ornament to add some shape and dimension to the package. Easy peasy. And next up, I was inspired by the snowflakes on one of the gift tags and drew my own abstract versions with the included pen.


Some other fun things to try:

  • Simply add decorative tape to seal the package.
  • Add an ombre effect to the wooden tags with stamping ink.
  • Punch out sparkly shapes. The decorative tape included is thick enough to use a punch on.
