Gift Wrapping Made Easy

Crossing things off the list. Today I started wrapping. I don't do designer packages. Although beautiful, it is a designer thing I just don't have time for. I look for ways to make wrapping easy.

I have a couple of guidelines.

  • I stick to the red,green gold color theme. Then my ribbons and bows match.
  • I use the cheap curly ribbon as a base and add a sticky bow.
  • I use lots of different patterns but it looks fine because there is a common color theme.
  • I wear reindeer antlers or a Santa hat.
  • I listen to Christmas Carols, sing a little (definitely not a talent), and dance a lot - more like prancing. I am a reindeer after all.

David made me the ribbon dispenser that saves me oodles of time. He took a scrap board, drilled holes and inserted dowels. The ribbon comes off easily with no tangling. It is a great, simple solution.

What do you do to make wrapping part of the celebration?

  1. This systems works! Believe me, as someone who is not the greatest (by a long shot) at wrapping presents I've been using this system with Marji's help the past few years and the gifts always come out looking great!
