My favorite holiday pastime: wrapping presents. This year I spent a total of $5 on wrapping. Brown craft paper from the dollar store (that can be recycled) and a pack of brown bags (also can be recycled) from Michael's with a 40% of coupon.
We took craft paint and dressed them up a bit using some holiday colors. The stamp was a gift from a friend ... and it looks so good on brown paper. Also, using a white gel pen makes all the difference... it looks so nice that you don't even need a tag.
Don't forget the washi tape! Which makes anything! look! pretty!
Happy wrapping ...
Ps. IKEA had some great bags this year. We grabbed a pack for some of the bigger gifts.
