Craft paper, or Brown paper, is a staple in our house. It’s handy for just about everything, from lining the table before a water color or finger painting extravaganza to wrapping gifts, to creating rustic, beautiful little pieces of art. I love it and I always, always keep a roll in the house. It’s the perfect base for all sorts of projects, can be used as a medium for art or as a venue for displaying it and it’s inexpensive enough to create large displays or forts or life sized drawings without it breaking the bank.

This wrapping is elegant and rustic all at once, and so easy to do. A little pen, some pretty ribbon, and maybe a doily and presto, beautiful wrapping!

These favor bags are so clever, just a little craft paper printed on and then sewn shut. So much fun! These would be fun for holding confetti at a wedding as well! Seeds from your garden would stay safe in dry in something along these lines, making them great for giving as little gifts.
