I leave the wrapping up to my husband…….well at least the paper wrapping part.  I love of course to dream up and create gift wrap toppers and tie-ons and tags and ribbons….but the paper part, I am just flat-out not good at it.  I waste more than I use and I either come up to short or have to much paper and way to much tape….my Grandmother would always tape the box too…..boy that tape was strong stuff way back then, I think it could have held back the vault door in a bank! 

Anyway….dreaming up and creating the gift wrap for Christmas each year is fun and I just love a good presentation (aka beautifully wrapped gift), it’s much more exciting to open the gift!

This year I searched Pinterest for inspiration and found this cute idea using beads to create a snowman….and then added my own little touches.

We wrapped each gift in black chalkboard paper and homespun plaids, wrapped string around the gift a few times, then added simply painted snowman beads with different scarf options.

Baker’s twine, green velvet ribbon and chalkboard ribbon name tags for the scarf.
