I am a strong believer in the packaging of a present making that present so much more special!
After many years of hastily wrapping up barbies the night before Christmas, this year I am trying to take a deep breath, be relaxed and enjoy wrapping my gifts. Afterall, there is no barbies to wrap anymore.
There is so much inspiration out there in blogland for gift wrapping. Last night I spent about an hour looking thru blogs and getting inspired on how to wrap my gifts.
As I shared before wrapping with brown paper and tying with lace is a favorite of mine. But then I saw people using torn fabric and I love that idea!
This was so easy! Just tore some long pieces of fabric and wrapped them around the gift as I would with ribbon. Then I took a torn piece of eyelet and folded it back and forth. I took one of my paper roses (cue Marie Osmond) and they have an attached wire. Wrapped the wire around the folded fabric, and then around the fabric on the gift, fluffed it up and done! I love the look.
A little bling always looks good! This is some of the fabric I dyed a couple months ago.
So my sons and I have not been feeling well. We have had the stomach flu and it hasn't been fun. But I am feeling better, as are the boys, and so today I was actually able to take my parents Christmas card pictures.
I love my Dad's sense of humor. I was happy to get out of the house after a few days of being sick :)
Still really enjoying my tree!
So, how is wrapping going at your house?
Thanks for visiting!
