I had lots of fun wrapping my presents this year! Each one was different and it was really enjoyable making them look pretty!
I used a mixture of lace, printed sheet music of Carols, stick on jewels and various trims. The paper was cheap brown paper but really came to life with the accessories. I don't think I spend any more than I would have done with traditional paper as the accessories took up the cost that the brown paper saved. A little more time maybe but lots of fun and worth it! Here is the sheet music I used to print.
Bottles were given the Rudolf treatment with brown paper, stick on eyes and nose and pipe cleaner antlers! It made a boring bottle of wine or beer gift a lot more fun!
