A Thoughtful Place: No Peeking! The Gifts are Wrapped

No Peeking! The Gifts are Wrapped

My absolute favorite part of Christmas preparation is wrapping the gifts. A little know fact about me is that my very first job {I think I was 10!} was wrapping presents at a tiny little book cottage. My sister, who was in high school, had the legit job there and the sweet owner asked me to wrap pretty packages during the busy Christmas season. Well, some things never change. I could spend all day wrapping.

This year I went with a combination of prints and satin ribbon. I used pretty tags from Pixelimpress which I had written about in House of Fifty. I also made my own chalkboard stickers to add simple personalization.

  10. These are so cute! I have been wrapping my gifts almost the same way for years... in brown craft paper with colorful wrapping paper as an accent! But I have to say, your are much more snazzier than mine!

    Happy Holidays!
