Just Bought: Butcher Cord

I never thought that something as simple as red and white twine would make me so happy, yet I’m giddy as a schoolgirl after finding a massive tub of the stuff! And this is the real deal, too: 100% cotton, imported from Germany. Wunderbar!

This year I’m wrapping all my holiday gifts in brown kraft paper and tying the parcels with twine, for a look that’s homespun yet so festive too. For more simple gift wrap ideas, Lynne at Tea for Joy just did a charming post on the subject, and so did Martha B. at Nibs!

    That sounds really fun and festive, I like it a lot!!! I’ll have to remember that for future – I already bought my wrapping paper and ribbon for this year, I’m going pale blue snowmen wrap with silver ribbon.

    huh! i think i like it! i especially love the brown paper wrap idea. i was helping my friend, Connie, at her shop (where my cards are sold) and when her customers purchased something, i would wrap them. i used brown paper and fake red berries with some real pine sprigs and some ribbon. it looked so old world, like a package from a general store in the 1800s. i loved it!

    I’m with you on the butcher cord! I’m starting to assemble my gift wrapping supplies and all I keep thinking is that I want to go way simpler this year than usual. Plus, how cute would butcher cord look with these gift tags I ordered?!

    I am a huge fan of kraft paper and baker’s twine (I have a MASSIVE amount of the brown and white kind leftover from my wedding- I used it for welcome boxes.) It makes me happy too.
