What a great time of year and I am so happy you are here visiting me today. I have some fun and easy tips on how to wrap those special gifts for your loved ones. When I was in High School my second job was working at a department store wrapping gifts for 3 months. Ever since then, I used what I've learned and I add different elements to make each gift different. Sure, we can use those premade gift boxes or gift bags, but I love the idea of making everyone's gift special and unique. 
Supplies need:
  • Assorted wrapping papers
  • Assorted ribbons
  • Gift boxes 
  • Tissue Paper
  • Two sided tape
  • Scissors
  • Pre-Made gift tags or homemade ones
I love using all kinds of ribbons, but my favorite are the vintage spools of ribbons I acquired over the years. Using beautiful wrapping paper, with festive ribbon, makes your gift so special.  

When wrapping a gift, make sure to trim the wrapping paper on all sides and if you have a gift that is smaller than the box then add tissue paper to keep it in place. 

I love making simple bows, here is one that just requires a mini staple or can simply be tied. 

This is just the beginning of my gift wrapping and I have more to go. I can't wait to get all my shopping done. From my home to yours, have a blessed and peaceful Christmas. 

You'll see everything from gorgeous decor to yummy holiday recipes... and everything in between! Here's a look at what's coming up this week:

  1. Pretty! I love the staple bow, I'll definitely have to try that one this year!

  2. I love how you keep each roll of ribbon in a bowl! Genius! I just got finished making lots of ribbon loops and the spools were everywhere (mainly on the floor)! Thanks for touring with us this year on the HFTH blog tour!

  3. Oh! How beautiful! I especially love the red bows! Pinning!

  4. Love the staple bow and think I could actually handle that since I'm not very crafty. Thanks for the idea!
