Hi Everyone !
Like me, I am sure you all have read, seen or heard recommendations about wrapping all your Christmas gifts in the same paper.
When the pretty bags came along, a lot of us were pretty thrilled to have our wrapping dreams come true ! But they just don't look or feel the same as a beautiful package all wrapped in gorgeous paper and tied up with ribbon or string.
I began wrapping my gifts all alike a few years ago, and I must say, it really isn't all that much harder than putting them in a bag.
This is paper I picked up from Costco around $10., and we used it for three years, and still have some left. I only bought different but similar paper this year as our main tree is black and gold.
I also bought some kraft tags from Target, about $5 or so, which I used for a couple of years, and the ribbon is always wired, maybe three rolls a year for (on sale at Michael's) about $10. So, you can see it is a pretty cheap project.
I generally wrap the ribbon around the package just once, and do a double knot on top. I fishtail the ends of the ribbon, and since it is wired, I can poof it into a little bow look-alike.
The final look, as you can see, is so beautiful. Funny, but no one thinks they are REAL presents !
Wrapping like this is pretty fast, and so simple my husband always wraps all of my gifts just like these. Give it a try - it is so festive !!
