DIY Fall Gift Wrap – Golden Magnolia

Sharing is caring!

Golden-Magnolia-gift-wrap

It is always nice to give a beautifully wrapped gift to someone. I love to capture the colors and themes of the season in my designs. I feel that the gift wrap is part of the gift rather than just a way to hide the item that is inside. These beautiful fall gift wrap designs capture the warm gold and brown tones of the fall. Gold patterned scrapbooking paper, silk flowers and beads create a stunning design that is perfect for any occasion.
