  1. I love how you have used the Christmas Crates stencil and trimmed all your packages differently. I’m so inspired and can’t wait to try them.
    Thank you for the wonderful ideas.

    I like you Christmas crate stencil, it is a cute one to use to wrap gifts. I usually copy old Christmas card fronts and put on mine, but i like this much better, thanks.

    I’m thinking I really Love this Christmas crate stencil. Oh the possibilities!

      Thanks, Sandi! It is a fun and useful one!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, this was a fun one! It’s hard to pick a favorite, isn’t it?

  6. I recently ordered this crate stencil for this exact reason! I always wrap gifts in either white or brown craft paper and wanted to do something different this year besides ribbon to decorate them. So nice to see the stencil in action! Even more excited now to get wrapping as the stencil arrived last week!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I guess great minds definitely think alike then, Marie;) Have fun stenciling!

  7. Lori Sawyer says:

    Your gift wrap is spectacular! I want to try the plaid shirt stencil.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      That one would be really cute on packages, Lori!

  8. I can’t wait to use this stencil on my wrapping paper–great inspiration!!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Glad to give you another way to use your stencils, Becky! Thx!

  9. Wow! The gift wrap and bows/trinkets are just awesome! Lots of inspiration to go around!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Carlene! These are going to be fun to decorate with!

  10. Excellent idea, and I was in your head….. I did some fake packages on my porch and stenciled them, and bought plain wrap to stencil for under the tree. But first I’d need to actually buy gifts which I haven’t even made a list yet.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I have so much more fun wrapping gifts than I do buying them, Bliss! And maybe there’s some fake package fumes in the MN air;) Fun hopping with you, neighbor!

  11. Your wrapping paper and your blog are beautiful! Great linking with you on this one! Happy Holidays! Susan
