Christmas Gift Wrapping
Here is my Christmas gift wrapping efforts for 2013: I'm only half way through the pile, but I thought I should share a photo or two with you in case any of you would like help with a theming idea (see previous themes here and here).
I went for a budget friendly and simple combination of coloured tissue paper, clear cellophane, washi tape, and mini balloons* (ie.water balloons without the water) that I tied on top of the gifts with fishing line. You will notice I have used a range of ribbons - I decided it was time to raid the craft cupboard and use some of my old collection. If you don't have this kind of stash, I find Spotlight is brilliant for cute and inexpensive ribbons and braids.
I hope you all had a great weekend, and you are enjoying the festive season!
*FYI - I wrapped the first gift a week ago, and the little balloon stayed filled with air for the full week...just be careful not to pop a balloon when transporting the gifts, I have to admit - I've already lost one or two.
