Wrap your gift in the brown craft paper. This paper is thicker than standard wrapping paper, so make sure that you make good creases in the folds!

Next, fold over the edges of the glitter paper and tape around the center of the gift. I used a rectangular shaped gift box, so I used a piece of glittered paper about 2/3 the size of the gift.

Next, take the mini faux boxwood garland and simply wrap it around  the gift from front to back, and then back to front. Twist the ends together and twirl them a little on the ends. Love how it it coming together! The contrast of the glittered paper and boxwood garland is beautiful!

Finally, apply the red glittered letters to the mini tags and string them on the red and white baker’s twine. Clip them onto the boxwood garland with the mini clothespins. You could do so many different words, the possibilities are endless! I just love the word.. JOY… at Christmas!
