Crocheted Ribbon Gift Packaging

I've been a crocheting fool lately, making scarves and cowls for Christmas gifts.  Being a jewelry designer and a family of mostly girls and women, I give quite a few pieces of jewelry during the holidays too.  For my smaller gifts I've been crocheting 'ribbons' to embellish printed craft paper.  (The craft paper is a dollar store find!) 

 This is a simple single chain crochet using a sparkly silver cotton thread and a small hook.  (size b)

 The larger present I used a larger hook (size f)


The tags are stamped with a few of my favorite themes and a holiday messages.  A little sprig from our evergreen tree adds a festive touch.  (Wait the day of the gift-giving to add the greens.) 

My assistant Antoinette and I have been putting together the mother of all Holiday Pinterest Boards.  It's amazing and you should go check it out right now!!!  I will be posting round ups of my favorite holiday ideas all week.

These are a beautiful alternative to stamped tags and ones I plan on using too.

Adorable! I love gift wrapping most of all! My packages for all my holiday orders have been very unique and fun. I have new Moo cards with thank yous and scratch off and some postcards as well. I love to add little touches so that the outside builds the anticipation and this year I found little chipboard trees and snowflakes. I am using very brightly colored ribbons to be festive without being too traditional. These are sweet! Everyone on your list is lucky! Enjoy the day. Erin
