I am a sucker for a pretty package. I really am. And while paint chips are nothing new, I have never used them on my presents before. There is something magical about the ombre effect and how it looks with the white stripes in between. I am a regular at our local home improvement store and always ask before grabbing two or three paint chips. I chose three bright hues for upcoming gifts for my family. This is birthday season around here. My two beautiful nieces both celebrate birthdays this month. I chose the wide ones so that I could trim the writing off. I like the look of the clean color palette. Placed under the bow of a simply wrapped gift they add a fun punch of color. I used a paper very similar to craft paper. And white grosgrain ribbon is a staple in my wrapping closet. It works with everything. Sometimes I hole punch my gift tags, but I wanted these to lay flat for the effect I was going for. Because of that, I chose washi tape to adhere it to the wrapping paper. I love the aqua colors. We actually bought my niece a top that has these colors so it all tied together nicely. I like the idea of adding just a little more pattern with the washi tape. You can never go wrong with cute tape, right? … I used my chalk paint pen to write the names. But I am not gonna lie. . . those paint pens kind of get the best of me. I can never get the paint to flow correctly. Anyone else have that issue? And that’s a wrap. Ha. Can you blame me?! I have always been a huge fan of a gift wrapped up with paper and a bow. I know tote bags are adorable and easy, but you can beat the feeling of unwrapping a gift. And because it’s almost Easter time, you may want to check out the super simple paint chip egg garland we made.
