GIFT WRAPPING 101
Happy Thursday!!! There is something about handwritten notes and gift wrapped presents that bring me back to my childhood years. It allows us to add a little bit of thought to the the details which I love. So, as you may know by now, gift wrapping is a big deal in our house.
You may ask how one goes about picking out the right patterns and papers. I normally start with a two-three color combo. This year, I went with neutrals with a pop of color: black, white and gold with a touch of red, coral, and pink. All five of my wrapping papers were purchased at Target, and my ribbon was purchased at Hobby Lobby and Michael’s.
GO TO TARGET. BUY 3-5 ROLLS OF WRAPPING PAPER WITHIN YOUR THEME AND SIMPLE NAME TAGS TOO. I LOVE THE KRAFT PAPER TAGS IF I CAN’T FIND BASIC ONES. AND, GET SOME RIBBON TOO. IT IS CHEAPER AT HOBBY LOBBY.
PURCHASE SOME BOXES FOR ALL OF THE GIFTS THAT ARE NOT ALREADY BOXED.
LET THE WRAPPING BEGIN. I LOVE TO ADD 2-3 DIFFERENT RIBBON OPTIONS TO EACH GIFT. THEN, I CLIP SOME GREENERY FROM MY GARDEN OR THE TREE. THE FUNKIER THE BETTER IS USUALLY MY MOTTO. I HAD SOME DRIED EUCALYPTUS FROM TRADER JOE’S SO I ADDED THAT TO A FEW GIFTS TOO.
That’s a wrap. It is seriously so easy and beats any gift bag in a “who’s prettier” contest!! What do you prefer doing?? Wrapping paper or gift bags? Let me know in the comments below.
