FREE Friday: Printable Gift Wrap

Christmas In Black And White Wrapping Paper

It's Free Friday and I have a FREE printable for you- gift wrap!  On this day after Thanksgiving, already our minds turn to Christmas.  There are many upcoming festive celebrations from house parties and dinner parties to spending low key holiday time with family and friends. Then of course, there is the gift giving which is where today's printable leads us.

Inspired by classic black and white, with nod to the simplicity of Scandinavian design, the 'Christmas in Black and White' free gift wrap set contains three different wrapping paper designs for you to dress up your packages this holiday season. Tip: if you want these designs at a larger size, you can have them enlarged at your neighborhood copy center like Staples or Kinkos.  For extra large sheets, think of having them copied as engineering prints like these. This free printable wrapping paper design is black and white, which makes that a perfect option for wrapping larger packages.

The 'Christmas In Black & White' set would look great with the chalkboard gift tags I shared last Friday.

I hope you enjoy using it to spread some holiday cheer.

Speaking of holiday cheer, if you're in the States, how was your Thanksgiving?  Ours was perfect.  Relaxing morning filled with the smell of apple pies baking.  Then off to my brother and sister-in-law's house for turkey with all the fixings.  Lots of delicious food starting with appetizers (as if we needed those) including the prosciutto roll ups I shared yesterday and not one, but two turkeys this year (apparently there was a shortage of large birds, hence the two instead of one big one).  Brother Bill is the official carver.

Dinner was followed by the Pie Off.  I think nephews Pat and Joe tied this year.  Which means they each enjoyed a piece of pumpkin, a piece of apple, a piece of pecan, and a piece of chocolate pudding pie and a piece of lobster tail pastry from Mike's in the North End. It was all delicious. There were lots of laughs too, especially when my sister-in-law Kelly presented my father with his 'gravy master' award for making the gravy every he is with his new giant whisk!

I hope yours was as good.  So blessed to sit around a table with people we love and have our plates full of delicious food. There are so many who are not so lucky. It's good to be thankful for the things we sometimes take for granted.

Have I ever told you that I love The Highwaymen- Johnny, Willie, Kris, and Waylon. Damn they were good. I have a special place in my heart for Mr. Kristoferson. I just love the man.......Rhodes scholar or not, this guy can write one hell of a song (including Bobby McGee..........yes, that Bobby McGee).  Here's another song he wrote with all four of them performing.  I love a song that tells a story. Click here if you're reading via email.

I hope you have a great weekend. No set plans here, but I'd love to start decorating and perhaps get that first Christmas craft underway or completed......among other things. We'll just play it by ear and see how all of that goes.

Have a good one.

Ciao for now,


  1. Hi! We don't celebrate it here, but I have enjoyed Thanksgiving dinners with some American friends here in Barcelona. Delicious food and good company, so, good times! Have a nice weekend!

    1. Hola Marta! Hope all is well on your end. How nice to be able to partake in another countries tradition without leaving home so to speak. I have to say, in Ireland they celebrate St. Stephen's Day, the day after Christmas and it's not celebrated here............but it is in our house! No sense in that entire hectic run up to Christmas and then it's over in a day. We take off the day after so we can really kick back and relax after all the celebrations. Be well!

  2. Love the free printables! Happy late Thanksgiving. Would love for you to share and link up over at Photo Friday


  3. I love the look of those presents, thanks for sharing!
