Countdown, Day 18: Parchment Wrap

Ancient parchment or vellum "paper" for writing has come a long way.
 Today we can choose from all sorts of parchments for various purposes.

What could be more simple or utilitarian
than a gift wrap of kitchen parchment and string?
 
 
Old English computer text dresses up a handmade gift tag printed on parchment cardstock.


A parchment wrap and kitchen string adds transparency and design to dollar-store religious candles.
Have I gone off the deep end in search of "abbey style"?
