With most of my holiday shopping behind me, it's time to turn my attention to wrapping the gifts and making them look as pretty as I can with what I have on hand.
I enjoy wrapping gifts when I'm not rushed and by starting now, I'll have plenty of time to enjoy this task before gift giving day gets here or before any out of town gifts have to be mailed.
I thought I would share my 'gift wrapping' journey with you, here's what I've done thus far ...
I purchased these over sized cups on clearance last year after Christmas for $.50 each and put them in my gift trunk. I took them out this week, filled them with individually wrapped candies, placed the candy filled cups inside clear cookie bags that I had on hand and tied them up with ribbon I purchased on clearance for $.10/per roll after Christmas last year. The bag of candy cost between $6 and $7 dollars at Sam's Club which made each gift (8 candy filled cups) just a little below $1.50 each.
I'm using these 'cups' as part of my holiday decor until gift giving time arrives. I'll be putting up a tree and then the rest of my decor will be my 'wrapped gifts.' The wrapped gifts make our home look festive without being cluttered (when you have a small home, this is a concern) and then when gift giving season is over all I have to take down and put away is the tree.
Have you started wrapping gifts yet? Do you use your 'wrapped gifts' as part of your holiday decor?
