A neon and gold Christmas

3 sleeps!! Can you believe it?

After planning a wedding, ‘doing’ the wedding (aka – getting married!), honeymooning, moving house, unpacking, opening wedding gifts, putting away wedding gifts, going back to work etc etc, Christmas seemed to sneak up on us so quickly!

I had lofty plans of making a Advent calendar, decorating a Christmas wreath, sewing cute Christmas stockings and writing my own unique set of Christmas carols. In reality, we got as far as setting up the Christmas tree (thank you Matt and Rach!) and buying gifts for our families. So instead, I used ALL my pent up crafty-Christmassy spirit on wrapping the gifts!

Two of the biggest design trends in 2011 seemed to be neon, and gold. Since I had lots of leftover neon paper (some may recognise it from our wedding invite confetti), and since gold wrapping paper was cheap at Ikea, and since I have a out-of-control mild obsession with origami cranes, I combined the two. Here’s what I came up with…

So easy and a lovely splash of colour – I like sneaking away from the traditional green and red!
