First, let’s get you some snazzy gift wrap. Do you prefer pink convertibles or palm trees parading as Christmas trees? Click the links below to download the wrapping paper!

Pink Convertible Paper
Palm Trees Paper
Chill Out Paper

This paper can be printed as large as 24″x36″. If printing at a large size, I recommend printing colored engineer prints at your local print shop for the most cost effective option. You can also print on 11×17″ paper for smaller gifts!

Now let’s talk decorating, shall we!?

I love a good layered ribbon look, but it’s a PAIN to get those ribbons to look perfect sometimes, so I have a little trick! I like to use tape instead!!! Try adhering Scotch® Expressions Glitter Tape overtop the Scotch® Expressions Metallic Tape for the same look that stays in place! SO much easier.

Second, I think it’s fun to embrace the tape that is actually necessary to seal up the package, and make it stand out on it’s own by using a contrasting color! I used Scotch® Expressions Metallic Tapes here because.. HELLO! Holographic for the win.

Pro Tip: Seal up your boxes with Scotch® Heavy Duty Shipping Tape before wrapping so nobody can take an early little sneak peek from Santa! (It also helps smooth over any edges from lids so it’s easier to wrap.)

    Those designs are so cool, they’re so different from the traditional wrapping paper!

  • Antonella | White House Crafts

    Love these designs! I’m starting to get more into pink as a holiday hue.

  • Kristina B

    Love these papers! And that Scotch glitter tape is the best. OfficeMax had it buy 2, get 2 free a while back so I may or may not have about 6 rolls on my desk as we speak…

  • Al

    As someone who lives in Aus it’s nice to see some christmas themed wrapping that is a bit more summer based – thank you! x

  • Isabelle

    I love big prints! And this tropical idea for Christmas is amazing! Love it!

  • Maria

    This tropical wrapping of yours was featured on Brit+Co. I tried opening the Palm Tree pdf from their website and yours. It won’t open. The other two, Chill Out and the Convertible, open just fine. Please help! I’d love to use it this holiday.

    The science and psychology of decorating goes back to the color psychology and the expereince of people to refer to their predecessors. In fact, some colors in decoration underline the anticipation of miracles. That is why, people like to decorate so much.
