Christmas Wrapping

I will admit that I am not that great at the actual wrapping of the presents as far as covering them in paper. I just can't ever seem to cut the paper in a nice, straight line. I also stuggle to fold and tuck the ends neatly. After so many years of wrapping gifts, I would think I would get the hang of it by now. I really need to watch some of those gift wrapping instruction videos on You Tube.

However, I do manage to a pretty decent job with the ribbons, bows, and other package decorations. I prefer using fabric ribbon as opposed to plastic ribbon or simple gift bows. I try and stock up on ribbon during the after Christmas sales so that I have a good supply of various colors and sizes to make presents look pretty and elegant.

I also have a fun time adding on dollar store ornaments and decorative floral picks. When I can find cute gift boxes for cheap, like the house shaped box below, I will snap them up.

How are you at wrapping? Do you get those nice and crisp ends tucked under neatly? Do you like using fabric ribbon? Do you have a cat like mine that likes to pull all the bows off the presents?


  1. Where did you get that kitty embellishment?
    I'd like two
    I just wrapped the last of grandkids presents...grandpa keeps buying!!!!!!!!
    Stop! enough! Mine don't look pretty like yours...but they are too little to notice..phew!

  2. Very pretty packages!
    I usually buy one solid color of wrap at the dollar tree and then add embellishments
    I always set out to have WOW packages BUT I always end up just doing the best I can
    I have a cousin who coordinates everything plus everything you open has a matching ornament
    I would love to be like her!
    Merry Christmas

  3. Your packages look cute. I'm the same way. Store bought paper, curly ribbons, and crooked cuts. It's what's on the inside that counts, right? It's an object lesson for my kids about true beauty! :)

  4. Like Suz said I love the kitty embellishment. LOL. What a wonderful picture. You presents look so pretty and neat. What a beautiful sight.

    Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a beautiful New Year....Tracy :)

  5. I am pretty good at wrapping, but I do get tired of it. My goal for next year is to have some ornaments to tie onto packages and make my own gift tags. We'll see if that actually happens.

  6. I think your packages look great! Looks like you do a fine job of wrapping! I do alright, but not always neat crisp edges. I figure, everyone who is opening them care more about what is under that paper! ;)


I adore comments, thanks for visiting.
