Here’s a fabulous DIY option for Christmas wrapping paper which also happens to look great with the Cobalt & Kin gift tags.

Because the tags are bright pink they look fantastic on a black and white colour scheme and one of my favourite crafting blogs, Oh Happy Day, had a cheap yet elegant solution! I have always felt a little dismayed at the way wrapping paper gets shredded in the rush to discover what’s inside; over the years I have carefully prised off the sticky tape and smoothed out the paper ready for another day. But with two kids and a lot of cheap Christmas paper out there I’m less inclined to save the paper.

With this option you can get the kids involved. Use inexpensive butchers paper and some black watercolour paint (or go crazy and use another colour) and a spray bottle. Then jazz it up with a bright gift tag and some interesting ribbon and you’ve got a stack of presents which will look stunning all together under the Christmas tree.
