I’ve been wanting to collaborate with my talented friend Kate Zaremba for while now (I wrote about her work ages ago–she did textile designs for Rachel Antonoff)–and finally the time is here! Kate recently launched her illustration company where she does adorable prints, wallpaper, gift wrap, cards, and custom illustrations. She was kind enough to supply me with some of her brand new gift wrap, and I made 5 simple gift toppers for them with all the instructions below. PLUS, we’re doing an Instagram contest where she’ll make an original design based off of YOUR inspiration. Just post a pic of your inspiration, tag it with #giftwrapinspirationcontest, and follow @kathrynzaremba. The winner will be selected, Kate will design some gift wrap, and you’ll receive it as a gift. FUN huh?! Head on over to instagram for more info. Contest ends Monday, November 25th.*
*Note: This contest is now closed, but you can head on over to Kate’s Instagram for print inspiration and the Lars Instagram for holiday crafting ideas!

Holiday gift wrap ideas
We know you probably have a lot of holiday gift wrapping to do. After you craft some of these beauties, take a look at our other gift wrap ideas! You can make DIY gift bags from wallpaper (Kate Zaremba’s wallpaper, perhaps?). Want to mix and match your gift toppers? Check out these greenery gift toppers (also made from paper)! We also have a line of Lars wrapping paper, available with many other holiday gifts and templates in our Christmas shop!
Let’s get to wrapping!
