It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
Fa La La La La, La La La La...
Uh, yeah I know I totally just combined two different Christmas songs. I am a rebel like that.
Really I am just so excited about all this gift wrapping that I am giddy beyond all normalcy and reason.
Well, I guess I should clarify, I am giddy with the results. Wrapping presents is a tad bit tedious, at least for me. Maybe some of you frolic around happily with a tubes of wrapping paper, a multitude of gifts, and rolls of scotch tape.
However, I do my frolicking after the presents are wrapped and all pretty like under the tree.
Keeping it real moment- I do not wrap all fancy every year. Some years I am slapping paper on presents in a frenzied fashion on Christmas Eve Eve...other wise known as two days before Christmas. No extra bows. No tags. Just names written the outside of the paper. My boys love their gifts either way.
So when I do the extra frills, fabric, and lace it is just an added bonus for the year.
This year just happens to be that added bonus year.
Since I was already a little country and gingham obsessed this Christmas, I decided my gift wrap this year should just play follow the leader and tag a long.
Besides the paper, every little extra bit was gathered from my already quite hoarder-level stash.
Now if you are not a hoarder, all of these supplies are super easy to find and are cheap. A woohoo!
After grabbing some brown craft paper, red craft paper, and a fun coordinating print paper or two, I gathered a few things from the stash I mentioned.
Different kinds of labels.
Bits and Pieces. (PS the paper doilies are my new favorite packing bit)
All together and they make a perfectly delicious Country Christmas gift wrapping.
Now I can admire all the presents...at least until a curious little 20 month old wants to know what is the deal with all those paper tags.
Eh, and then I am still gonna admire it. Grubby toddler fingerprints on a Christmas package makes it even better.
