Sometimes wrapping up a present is just as fun as opening one.  You crafty peeps know what I’m talking about.  Here are some Etsy-inspired ideas for wrapping this season, and, what-the-heck, all year round!  If you want to see some other ideas brought to you live, check out the Your Shop 101 workshop today (Wed. Nov. 14th) at 4pm EST in the Virtual Labs.

If you’re shopping on Etsy, take a look around the rest of a seller’s Etsy shop before you check out. You may see an option for custom Gift Wrap and Goodies like cipolla does!

If you’re out there in the real world (What? Not online all the time? Hahaha!), ask for an extra cookie box at the bakery and use baker’s twine to wrap up your handmade presents. If you are indeed on Etsy all day long, stop by string‘s shop and pick up some of her Baker’s Twine

    Well, these are good ideas for a classy presentation. For some reason I was expecting wire wrapping from the title of the article!
