Black is not your typical Christmas colour, and neither is hot pink, but it works.
The present above present was wrapped with black paper and a gold satin ribbon for contrast. As you can see there’s many ways to spruce the box up for Christmas with any number of gift tags, a Christmas ornament, or just simply with a beautiful ribbon, depending on your mood or the size of the gift.
Gift wrapping can be a fun activity. I like to watch a movie while I wrap up the presents. And I have all my papers and supplies ready. And then I just enjoy the time I have to myself.

And to stay with the colour scheme, here is a handmade card made by our sister-in-law. My brother addressed and put the stamps on the envelope with the utmost care. The Swiss Post took the time to devalue the stamps to make sure we will send unused stamps back to Switzerland…
The book pages were taken from a crime novel by Lisa Jackson. It’s quite comical to read the few fragments because they have nothing whatsoever to do with Christmas.

Cut out the circles straight or scalloped.
Some presents are so beautifully wrapped, that I don’t want to unwrap them. But then… I always change my mind.
The black wrapping paper is available on Amazon.
