I can't believe I found the time this week, but I'm glad I did! I wrapped with paper, tissue, tape, string, ribbon, bows, and gift bags. After about 5 hours, my lower back started to hurt, but I kept on going for just a little bit longer. It's not that I had a ton of things to wrap, it's just that I had a lot of crafty fun with the process.
Here are a few peeks:
1. Plain brown dollar store gift bags + simple black stamping = cute, unique, thrifty gift wrap.
2. I've used the same ornament for about 4 or 5 weddings now, but I still love it. The mirrored decoration is from the home decor aisle of the dollar store. I wrinkled up and re-flattened tissue paper for the innermost layer, wrapped that in polka-dotted cellophane and wrapped that all up with a 2m x 40cm piece of silvery tulle.
Full Disclosure: Not everything got wrapped, I must admit. In an act of true classiness, I handed two of my colleagues their gifts "wrapped" in the brown paper bags they came in from the LCBO. :) They didn't seem to mind one bit! Wrap some, leave some: it's all about balance, I guess. ;)
