Martha Stewart Punched Snowflake Gift Wrap Idea

Ah, isn’t this idea dreamy? Paper punches are extremely versatile, which is probably why I’m so obsessed with them, and I love how punched paper snowflakes and Stars of David are incorporated into this buffet of wintry gift wrap ideas from Martha Stewart Living. Gather tags and paper in shades of icy blue, fuzzy mohair yarn, sequins and paillettes (like sequins, but flat with the hole on the top), and you’re ready to create lovely, snowy gift wrap and embellishments. I think that a palette of pinks and peaches or minty greens would work beautifully, too. And how about white on white or shades of cream and taupe?

One of my favorite details in this project is the Star of David punch used in the snowflake garland and, unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the source for this supply is open anymore, and I wasn’t able to find a similar one online. Bummer. Paper Source has a Star of David paper punch that isn’t quite as detailed, but it would still be a nice addition to your paper punch collection if you’d like to create Hanukkah-themed gift wrap embellishments.
