Holiday Gift Wrapping

You'll never hear me complain about having to wrap holiday gifts. It's my favorite part of the holiday experience and it relaxes me. It's pretty easy to make pretty presentations. One handy trick is to layer on the ribbon. Use color coordinated ribbons of different sizes. To save on cost, I sometimes use strips of wrapping paper instead of ribbon. Here I used inexpensive crepe party streamers (in white) mixed with ribbons and I topped it all off with decorative stickers from Michaels along with computer generated name tags. It takes a little extra time, but it's worth it when you see the smile on the recipient's face.
