Simple Tip for Christmas Gift Wrapping

Rather than using ribbon on my Christmas gifts, this year I’m using inexpensive crepe paper.

I like the width and the fun texture of the crepe paper.  I bought a huge roll for about $3 from Target.  Super-easy to dress up even a plain white shirt box.

I’ve gotten tired of all the crushed bows from stacking gifts on top of one another.  No problem with this crepe paper alternative.

    Love this idea! I just tried something new… I cut tissue paper into bands, then 3-folded the band and put it around the gift. It was pretty, but way too much work… and the tissue is limited in it’s length. I like this idea MUCH better 🙂

    Very cute! I’m noticing this is the year for owls. They are everywhere this season! And it makes me think of you and your love of decorating with owls. My family has been noticing it so much lately that we have owl hunts at the stores to see who can find them first… and then my brother just gave me an owl ornament for Christmas today. 🙂

    Hope your holidays are great!

    I used leftover paint chips (have hundreds in the office) and used them as name tags for the gifts. Pretty and the price was right – compliments of Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore.
