Etsy Blossoms

I’ve got some fun finds today for (a very late) Etsy Blossoms. These finds are the start of a new series here on Blossom Daily.  I’ve been thinking about the holidays and planning gift ideas lately, and I thought it might be fun to do a series on gifts. Today’s Etsy shops all have fantastic building blocks for beautifully wrapped gifts. I’m a firm believer in a beautifully presented present, and the key to that is creativity. These shops make it easy!

First up is The Gilded Bee. These amazing paper products are just crying out to be attached to thoughtful gifts. I love the idea of using paper flowers on simply wrapped packages. You can also see more creativity on her blog.

Have you ever wrapped presents with fabric? I especially love to use fabric with great textures, like the fantastic chenilles on Chenille Bliss.  This great collection of fabric includes some choice bits of barkcloth in addition to the chenille. Don’t forget to check out her Other Etsy shop and Christmas Etsy shop.

I love the muslin printed ribbon and Parisian themes from French Affairs.  There’s just the right amount of classic, ornamental, and a touch of glitter. There are also some great Halloween items in her shop. And don’t forget to check out her Other Etsy shop.

Buttons have so many uses, other than just fastening clothing. The Elusive Lemon has some beautiful buttons – I love these wooden ones. What a great simple packaging idea – a button threaded onto some twine, tied around a gift.

Finally I’m ending with some super-cute vintage themed tags and cards from The Paper Place.  I think the “Baked Goodies” tag at the top would be great on christmas cookies, perhaps with some bakers twine? I love the movie clipboards too – so retro fun!

Have a good week everyone!
