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.
All wrapped up and ready to present….
and that’s a wrap for 2015!
