If you are in need of a little DIY gift wrapping ideas I have a few suggestions for you from the archives of Wink.
1. Washi Tape
It is super easy to jazz up any present with a tag and a little washi tape. I am obsessed and have way too many rolls but you can never have enough colour! In New Zealand you can buy it here and here.
2. Hand Lettering
A little hand lettering adds a sweet and personalised touch to any gift. You don’t have to be an expert in writing or drawing to create something lovely – have a look here and here for ideas.
3. Stamp it
Making a mini stamp from something around the house can produce some amazing (and professional looking) results. You can use this to decorate paper, bags, boxes or even cards. Have a look here for some ideas.
4. Box it
Boxes are a great way to package little bits and pieces up and you don’t need any wrapping paper. Accessories can be as diverse as ribbon, a chalkboard tag or some florals. Have a look for cute boxes here and here.
I spent the weekend soaking up the inspirational magic of The Blogcademy Auckland and I feel so lucky! Being surrounded by all this excitement, energy and action was super inspiring and I do feel like anything is possible for me moving forward. I have a lot more to share including all the Wink styling of the event and what I took away from the workshop which will come in the next week or so if Christmas orders don’t slow me down too much.
In the meantime here are a couple of my Instagram snaps from the weekend to get you inspired too!
One of my favourite things about Christmas is picking my gift wrap. Every year it is the decision that starts off the Christmas buying period and sets the mood for the season. Serious huh!

Whew. November just flew by in a whirlwind of markets, anniversaries and my birthday. It was a lovely month though in many ways and it is always the calm before the storm that is December. Here are a couple of my favourite November shots from Instagram.
I started my first online shop over at Felt and to this day I love what they have to offer and the super style they do it in. If you are in New Zealand this is the place to be to shop – supporting local, handmade and crafty endeavours of creative New Zealanders everywhere!
