This is really easy to do. It only adds a few minutes to your wrapping time. And the result. . . people will be chattering more about the wrapping then what is actually in the box. Want to be remembered for your amazing Christmas wrapping? Need beautiful presents under that tree?
Try these easy ideas!
First decide on a theme. As you can see I went with a candy cane look this year. After I stumbled apon this beautiful red and white paper!! But you can acheive this same look with red paper and white ribbon or red ribbon and white paper! Tie on a candy cane and voila!
Another easy thing to do is to print out letters instead of name tags. Although with four ‘B’s and three ‘J’s it was a little confusing for everyone else. But none of the shapes were similar so I didn’t get them mixed up. You can write their name in small letters on the bottom or back if you’re afraid you’ll get them mixed up. I printed out the letters then cut them out and glued them to the present, using a glue stick.
All you gifts are going to match in theme. So try and make each one look as different as possible. I used two different red ribbons a think one and a fringe and three different white ribbons, a sheer, a thick one and a small curling one. I held the ribbon between my thumb and the open edge of the scissors. When you move the scissor edge across the ribbon it causes it to curl.
You can also use already made bows, those fuzzy pipe cleaners, feathers, glitter or paint pens to achieve the desired look for your presents. I try to stick to one theme. I love the monochromatic look and everyone knows who the gifts are from on Christmas morning!
One year I wrapped small kids soccer balls like a snowman! Whatever you decide to do. Be Proud to show it off!
