This post is written as part of my partnership with Command Brand. Who is with me? This is the year I am not going to be wrapping presents, hunched over on the floor wrapping presents on Christmas Eve. This year, I am going to “Wrap as I Buy”. Say it with me friends, “Wrap as We Buy”.
Today, I am joining with some blogging friends to share some easy and quick gift wrapping ideas.
Did you know that they are selling gloves this year where there is something in the fingertip that makes it so it works on your phone screen?
My world has been rocked.
And my daughter bought a pair for each of her girlfriends (fyi, JC Penney – only $5 each!).
So I decided to help her with some gift wrapping ideas.
And my thoughts went to my Grandmother, Myrtle. I imagine we all have a Myrtle in our lives. You know the one. They so carefully open the gift because they don’t want to tear the paper, because it looks so “rich”.
So, whenever possible, I like to wrap presents in something that is a gift in itself – without getting too complicated. That way, they don’t have to worry about wasting the wrapping.
And hopefully, with something already in the house. And in my case, since I am a ribbon hoarder, I always have ribbon in my house.
Enter – no-sew and easy DIY gift bags, made from ribbon.
When wrapping gifts – I love two things.
1 -Using real ribbon.
2- Attaching something that can be used again.
For these gifts I layered on a few different types of ribbons and then attached a wood slice ornament that was super easy to make.
Today I am teaming up with four lovely ladies to bring you… I will be sharing my project of wrapping with buttons and boxwood and then the links are below for each of the other creative projects. I wish I could tell you that I am one of those people who has all their shopping and wrapping done early
