Brown Paper Packages Tied Up With String...

... these are a few of my favorite things...

I have a difficult time when I have a present to wrap that's for, well, anyone other than a girl, because all the wrapping paper in our house is girly! Fortunately, I always have a roll of brown butcher paper in the repertoire of wrapping goodies.

Had to mail something off to my dad this past Tuesday, so I got out the roll of brown paper. I added a couple of things leftover from the photo mobile I made my daughter for her Graduation Party and printed up a card to set on the outside of the package.

That's it! Quick and easy!
Hope you have a great weekend! 
Don't forget about the big Blog Party next week!

  5. What a great idea!Love the added touch of color with the green -- and who doesn't love burlap! Thanks for posting!

  8. I love it! What a great way to do that and I love your accents!

  9. Ok Pam...I sing "Raindrops on Roses" to my daughter almost every night! :-) Now it is stuck in my head even more...but that's ok because I so love this package you wrapped up for your dad. What a great idea to keep brown butcher paper on hand! I find that most of mine is always girly too and then I am scrambling when it comes to guy's gifts. You made it look so special too and we are so glad you linked this up to Inspiration Friday! :-)
