MAKE // MERRIEST CHRISTMAS PATTERNED PAPER

{Photographs by Sally J Shim}

Although here at SHIMTOKK we generally only post once a week we will sharing ideas for holiday packaging every day this week. We hope for those who haven't started wrapping their gifts you will find some inspiration and ideas for your holiday packaging. Today we have a fun patterned paper printable for you. You can download the paper here. The patterned paper can be used for the holidays or for any occasion throughout the year. 

We printed the MERRIEST CHRISTMAS pattern on white copy paper on an oversize printer to create gift wrapping paper. (If you don't have an oversize printer you can bring the file to your local print shop.)

You can also print out the patterned paper and cut a strip to use as a band around a plain white box. You can add a sweet treat and tie it with twill tape.

Or print the patterned paper on to white cardstock and use a circle paper punch and needle & thread to create a little garland for your package.

If you shrink the size of the patterned paper (in your printer settings) and print it on to white cardstock you can cut it down to size and use it as a card.

Or print the pattern on to white sticker paper, use a circle paper punch and you have yourself some pretty little stickers.

And lastly print the pattern on to white cardstock, use paper punches and create your own gift tags. We braided some twine for a nice touch. We hope you are able to use this patterned paper to create your own pretty packages!
