Last year, no more wrapping paper being sold in our home ... I also don't like cheap wrapping paper that tears while you are wrapping the present. I couldn't find anything I wanted that didn't cost a fortune and that I liked. So I went "natural" for the theme. This also irritated my children! They thought I was going to decorate with twigs and pine cones - I wouldn't have minded that either - but that wasn't what I meant!
I promptly went to Walmart and bought one large roll of brown butcher paper which is always readily available. I found the cutest little reindeer ornaments for $1.00 each! Then to the fabric store for Turquoise Satin Ribbon.
Here's how it turned out ... and once my precious little ones tore into them I had no remorse as it all went to the recycling bin and we saved the ornaments ... haven't decided if I will use them again this year in the same manner. But they won't go to waste!!
This year's color combo has not been chosen. Probably because I don't have any gifts to wrap yet!! How do you like to wrap things up??
While I have visions of sugarplums ... how about this for a little Christmas Bling!
