If you’ve been to a conference or event in the last few years where people are handing out business cards, chances are you received a MOO Card.
Especially recognizable for their Mini Card print size (about half as tall as a standard business card), the thing that makes MOO unique is a feature they call Printfinity. It’s a quirky name for their service that allows customers to put a different image on every card printed at no extra charge.
I’m a big fan of gift wrap that works for any occasion, either gender, any age. A few rolls of versatile wrapping paper will ensure you’re prepared in a pinch and keep your wrap stash tidy.
Kraft paper is the ultimate go-to. You can dress it up or down, make it look rustic and earthy or sleek and modern.
But let’s go beyond the brown and add a few more rolls to the mix. Fig 2.’s gift wrap comes in a variety of patterns and colorways that are instantly festive and easily embellished however you choose. Keep it simple with twine or go wild with ribbon!
If there’s one thing great gift-givers love, it’s an awesome party! Whether you’re the shindig master or worship at the punchbowl of someone who is, Shop Sweet Lulu has everything and more to make packages irresistible and celebrations kickass.
When I grow up I want to be Jessie Senese. Jessie began her career as a party planner after creating quite the amazing first birthday party for her daughter Olivia Lulu London (the shop’s namesake). Fast forward ten years to the beginning of Shop Sweet Lulu, a shop she says that, “simply carries things that make a party pretty.” Read More
Have you seen these? Oh I’m so sad I missed them prior to Mother’s Day, but happy to have found them today! Stephanie Brubaker’s bloom gift toppers are such a simple idea with such a lovely result—and what fun to go collect all those flowers.
Stephanie uses basic kraft gift boxes, a little washi tape, and sprigs and stems of herbs and blooms from her yard and nearby. I’m thinking gifts for weddings, birthdays, baby showers—they’d all look great with flowers!
Visit Stephmodo to get her tips, see the combinations she’s come up with, and to get inspired to create your own.
I love the simple look of baker’s twine on a wrapped gift. Don’t you? But when you want a spool in every color (which of course we do—rainbows are the BEST) it can start to eat away at your twine budget.
So I was quite excited when I came across Laura Beth’s clever DIY Baker’s Twine. It’s not what you might think. You won’t be spending hours trying to twist and twirl little strings. Nope, LB uses Sharpies and white thread to create a similar look to baker’s twine and the result is really impressive.
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! These paper calla lilies from Oh Happy Day are a perfect way to dress up your Mother’s Day (or wedding, bridal, baby shower, and birthday) gifts.

The possibilities are endless, really, so go nuts!

Before we sign off and settle in with our families for some holiday fun, I wanted to share a few last bits of inspiration for this festive season that are making me smile, right this very minute.
There’s been a lot of love for the simplicity of kraft paper around here these last few months and these lovely rustic packages by Sunday Suppers epitomize every ounce of it. A simple mix of paper, pine, and twine. Don’t they make you want to run outside and gather some wintery bits to bring indoors? So cozy.
Time to wrap! Whether you’re looking for inspiration or how-to help, we’ve gathered up the best videos to help embellish or upgrade your gift-wrapping skills.
The first few cover the basics of wrapping a box. You’ll also learn creative ways to reuse materials already around your house and crafty DIYs with pom poms and potatoes.
