I look at my shop assistants wrapping gifts for our customers and I see that not all of them have the gift or they ‘re not into it.

Also, only you could make me now want to go undo all the terribly wrapped boxes under our tree and start over! Thanks Gabby.

It is just too wasteful to me. We wrap presents in fabric and just tie them up in a bow, or reuse paper bags and decorate the blank side that faces out. I know it doesn’t give quite the same look and effect, but I hate seeing those heaping bags of trash on the curbs the first trash day after Christmas!

My husband actually matches patterns up when wrapping. haha!

Still…the tearing apart of wrapping paper brings me back to my childhood. When I have kids, I’ll definitely go back to good old fashioned wrapping paper.

I will have to check out the bow tutorial though, I could definitely use some help there. :)

Quick way to figure out how much wrapping paper you need to use.

Fold it under, then use double sided sticky tape for a more “polished” look. It basically makes the gift look like there are no seams, and it’s not an added step, just a different way of doing it.
