I learned how to gift wrap when I was about 8 years old.I remember sitting on my Mom & Dad’s bed with my Brother and Sister’s while they showed me how to do it without using too much paper.

I still enjoy wrapping gifts,
even though it can be hard on the back at age 43.
Daphne and Valerie help me lots.

Before I show you some pretty boxes I wrapped this year, I need to share with you  two secrets in order for your wrapping experience to be successful.

Your favorite beverage,
and Michael’s Christmas CD will get you through it.
I promise.
The worst part about wrapping for me, is preparing the boxes.
Don’t forget to write down on the box who’s gift it is.
So important.
Next, get all of your supplies together,
and figure out where you have room to do it.
When choosing your paper, try going against the grain a little.
Try something a little risky,
or extraordinary.For example, I normally would not put these two blues together.
You can see though, that it worked.

Paper and ribbon are from Michael’s.
I tied the bow just like I tie my sneaker.
Then I spread out the ribbon (this ribbon is easy to work with).
The ornaments I had, but make a great addition to a Christmas gift.
You can find inexpensive ones at the dollar store.
(the Santa my Mom gave me)
Here’s another example of using ornaments as a bow.
I love stripes.  I love black.  Why not use both with a touch of glitz.
This silver ribbon is also from Michael’s.
Martha Stuart’s Trim Accents.
It is actually easier to use than ribbon.
Just peel and stick.
This last one is my favorite.
I find it a bit annoying when someone suggests “to think outside the box”.
It’s not exactly a compliment when someone says that to you, ya know?
In this case, it truly fits, so I couldn’t resist.THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX.

Gifts can be wrapped with any color you like.This is for my Dad,
who happens to be a Veteran.

Please don’t forget to join me and Jen on the day
after Thanksgiving for our Christmas party.
Lots of free giveaways for all of our followers like these bulbs from RCD.
