Pink Kraft Fun

Valentine's Day is tomorrow and I did manage to wrap my hubby's present ahead of time. I don't know about you, but I, for one, love to design my own wrapping paper. I love using plain kraft paper and some fun accessories to make it special. It saves money and space and you can customize it for whatever occasion it is.

This time around I used the great tutorial that Ez from Creature Comforts has for making pompoms and made some pink cuties. She has a great video tutorial and made it super easy to follow.

I was doing this while my baby was napping and I think I got a little carried away with the free time, since I experimented and tried a whole bunch of options.

Two, buckle my shoe,
Four, close the door, 
And I stopped at four. 

I felt that it needed a little masculine touch though, so I added some washi tape and voila. 
This is the final product after having some fun with pompoms. Hope he likes it. 

Have a great week ahead!


  1. It looks so cute! Great job. :) I love seeing how other people wrap gifts! So fun!!

    1. Hi Kerry,
      Thanks. I just hope he likes it. The wrapping and the gift.

  2. I wasn't familiar with washi tape, so of course I had to check it out. I had no idea there was so much gorgeous stuff out there. Your package looks great, and now I'm inspired to buy all kinds of tape and wrap some gifts!

    1. Hi Dana,
      Washi tape is awesome. It comes in so many colors and designs. You can have so much fun with it. I made a garland with it for my son's birthday. Love working with it.

  3. This looks so pretty! Pared back but pretty - it's perfect. Hope you had a lovely valentine's day!

    1. Hi Tanya,
      Thanks. My hubby even liked how it looked. Had a lovely Valentine's Day. Hope you as well.


Thank you so much for your comments! You've made my day!
