Gift Wrapping, Our Tree, Joy and Reindeer Cutouts and Imparting Grace


Today I am excited to introduce two new cutouts each in two colors and show you some gifts I wrapped with them and the Christmas tree in our living room that I accented them with. 

First we have Joy Cutouts in Cream both in small:

and medium:

We also have reindeer cutouts in cream in both small and medium:

The reindeer are also available in black in small and medium:

And the Joy Cutouts are available in black in small and medium as well:

 Our Drummer Boy Cutouts make great embellishments for gifts too!

 And here is our tree accented with both the new Joy Cutouts (I used two packs of the medium size) and the Drummer Boy Cutouts and lots of other handmade ornaments.



The reindeer make great ornaments too:


There are lots of ways to use these fun little cutouts:


I also wanted to introduce one of our newest blog sponsors, Richella from Imparting Grace!


I actually know Richella not just from blogging but in "real life" too. She is a family friend that lived next door to my Aunt and Uncle for years. She and her husband have three sons, all close in age to my cousins. So, it is nice to be able to introduce you to a friend. Richella and her family live in a beautiful home, that you can read about here. Here is a photo of her home decorated for Christmas last year. If you click on it it will bring you to her Christmas Tour.
   
Richella's blog is full of tips and inspiration. She hosts a weekly party called Grace at Home . She also recently started a new weekly series called Grace for Dinner that focuses on quick and easy dinner recipes.  I think this is such a great concept and she features not only recipes of her own but from other bloggers as well. (I am planning on trying this recipe from one of her guest posters!) Head on over to Imparting Grace and say hello!

I hope you all are having a wonderful Thanksgiving week!

  1. Jennifer,

    The joy and deer cut outs that you put on your jar with chocolate chips, did you tape or glue them on?? And what size did you use.

    Thanks!!

    1. I actually used a piece of chocolate brown thread and tied them around the neck of the mason jar so they kind of nicely "dangled" from the jars. I used the small size for that.

      Have a lovely Thanksgiving!

  3. Did you make the button garland that's wrapped around your gifts and tree or did you purchase it? Thank you!

    1. It is from Ballard Design. I got it last year. I used it on my tree and also on a smaller tree and for lots of wrapping and still have some left over! It was well worth the money!

  4. Your tree is stunning Jennifer and those presents are beautifully wrapped. Prettiest packages I've ever seen! Love the buttons, lace and the cutouts add such a festive touch. I'm off to visit Imparting Grace.

    1. Thanks! I got the script wrapping paper at Ballard Designs last year. It was rather expensive but I used it to wrap "faux" presents so I was able to use it last year and again this year and hopefully years to come (I just changed out the ribbon and accents). It it a really nice thick paper and comes with three rolls. The music note paper is from IKEA. I got it a few weeks ago. It was very cheap! I think like $1.99 a roll, maybe? It's pretty thin but still a nice paper. I wrapped real gifts with that though that will be opened this year. I don't think it would hold up for years on end. =)

    2. Thanks Jenni :) I have always wanted to do "faux" presents. And you just inspired me. Finger crossed I can find the paper. I appreciate you taking the time to let me know. Have a blessed day.
      Hope your beautiful little ones are feeling better.

  6. It is so versatile but my favorite is the "joy" against the pine wreath.

  7. your tree is beautiful...and i am assuming since it is up so early it is artificial???? it is so hard to tell because it looks real! if it is artificial where on earth did you get it because i think it is the most beautiful "fake" tree i have ever seen!!!!

  9. Oh no! You're sold out of the Joy medium cutouts! Any chance you'll have more very soon?

    Your tree is beautiful! The wrapped packages are stuning. Can't stop looking at them.

    1. Most of the garland in our home is real but on the mantel it's artificial. I got it about four years ago at a store called Savvy in Williamsburg.

  13. Oh my goodness... So pretty! I actually just bought the same wrapping paper to cover books in my bookshelf but only used one roll. So, I'm so excited to see what you've done with it! I can't wait to purchase some cutouts! Happy Thanksgiving!

  14. Jenni, it's such an honor to be featured here! Thank you so much. When I count my blessings, you'd better believe that all the Hubbard family is on the list! Living next door to your aunt and uncle was one of the greatest privileges I've ever known. Lauren used to laugh and call Patty and me Ethel and Lucy! :)

    Thank you for introducing me to your readers. Happy Thanksgiving!
