.that's a wrap.




So, wrapping prezzies is one of my favorite things. However, I kind of suck at it. I even bought paper with the lines on the back this year (to help me cut straight), and I STILL end up with a wonky line. I don't know how I do it. (It's a skill, really.)

Anyways, in past years I've used kraft paper decorated with twine and ribbon and buttons and all sorts of odds and ends. It was fun getting creative, but I was going through Target (that place will be the death of me!) and I couldn't pass up all the pretty wrapping paper. (Aaaand I couldn't pass up the temptation of simple and easy.) 

To craft it up I used stamps instead of tags and twine. Does that count as crafty??

How do you guys wrap your presents? All out or nice and simple?

  2. Really nice wrapping. I really love how simple and rustic it looks.
    I'm also not great at gift wrapping, but I use a ruler to make a line and cut the paper straight. :)

  5. You don't suck at all, these are awesome! I was just thinking about how I'm going to wrap this year. I wanted to get creative but I seriously am not that great at even the most basic wrapping. Love the stamp idea though!

    1. Last year when I used brown wrapping and ribbons and stuff it was a lot easier to get away with non-perfect wrapping...because I could just disguise it with more bows and buttons. ;) You should give it a try.

  7. Your wrapping looks great! I love to wrap gifts and I always have fun getting creative with it but I am also not the best wrapper in the world. We normally get our wrapping paper at target but lately I have been loving the collection at Paper Source :)

  10. Oh gosh, I always love seeing the way people wrap their presents all pretty like! If only I wasn't so messy with my wrapping. One day I'll get it right ;)
