Tonight I have been doing my Christmas wrapping. I don't like to do it to early as this is the one job that really gets me in the Christmas spirit...my usual routine involves watching a festive film, eating chocolate coins and wrapping!
1. Brown Postal Paper
This is my best friend when it comes to presents. Generally speaking if you get a gift from me at your birthday or christmas it will come wrapped in brown postal paper. This is a great cost effective way of wrapping as I hold a roll of it at all times and therefore don't need to go and buy themed paper for each ocassion! You can then personalise it/glam it up as you wish.
You can buy 8 meters for £2.99 at HobbyCraft
2. A stamp and Ink
3. Brown tags
4. Ribbon & Raffia
I always have a stash of ribbon and raffia. Hobbycraft is a great place for this and do all sorts of colours and patterns. This year I am keeping it simple with pinks, blues, black.
Ready for Christmas Day and everyone appreciates the little homemade effort!
