The Simplest DIY Gift Wrap & Sarah’s Christmas Cards

When it’s time to order our Christmas cards, we are always inspired by so many design choices. We love browsing through all the options Shutterfly has to offer, and no doubt, we are always thrilled when our cards show up.

This year was no exception! Sarah chose candid photos from the year with a gate fold opening to a family photo. Making all the photos black and white is an easy way to give consistency to photos in any grouping, whether that be a gallery wall or a Christmas card. We just love the classic look of black and white (did you see that buffalo check envelope liner?!).

This idea inspired us to have some fun with gift wrap. Multiple designs with a simple palette of black and white. We used printer paper for small gifts and butcher paper from the craft store for larger gifts. A black coloring pencil, crayon, or marker is all you need to start doodling away.

In a matter of seconds you have your own unique gift wrap we know every one will love Christmas Day!
