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?
