+ Wooden treat boxes. By Melanie Blodgett on You Are My Fave. Stick-on letters and paint make for very cool, modern boxes. + DIY personalized ribbon. By Ashley Rose on Whimseybox. Stamps + fabric ink + ribbon = monogrammed ribbon.
+ Rosemary sprig gift decorations. By Laurie Kaiser. A refreshing way to decorate a gift — little sprigs of rosemary attached to the top of a gift in a grid pattern. And be sure to check out Laurie's Pinterest board and Tumblr for lots more inspiring gift wrapping.
+ Glitter gift tags. By Lauren on A Fabulous Fete. Lauren uses glitter and double-sided tape instead of glue (smart) to make these tags. Of course, you could also use glitter tape and cut down on the mess even more.
