Holiday packages: Sewn paper ...

The homespun look of sewn paper gift wrap is such a charming personalized packaging technique. I found lots of inspired crafters who've shown me the way.  Now, I'm itching to stitch.

Red thread.  Definitely, red thread!

Odds and ends make their way onto these handcrafted holiday bags (above).

There's no way you can go wrong with little paper candy pouches for stocking stuffers. Cut from simple shapes and filled with favorite treats, these pouches are adorable.

Sewn paper projects are only limited by imagination.  Christmas decorations galore can be made with a little time, scissors, thread and paper.  Looks pretty simple.

I'm thinking somewhere between ornaments, mobile and garland there is lots of room for creativity.

I do think I'll need to invest in a big, circle hole punch before tackling garland. The thought of cutting dozens of circles by hand fills me with terror!
