Off Topic - Gift Wrapping - bjcotton - 12-15-2007

Each year I swear I will NOT individually wrap each gift going to one person...just put them in a large box with lots of packing, shredded paper, etc., so each one has to be searched we go again. I don't know how many individual parts one of the gifts consists of, but lots, here I am again wrapping each individually....again

I also dislike gift wrapping. But there is a solution....

Gift bags!!! I love em. Especially when you can find them for $.99 ea. You could probably find great deals at the $1 Store.

I love wrapping presents! I have a wrapping station all set up by the tree and I wrap as soon as I buy. Wish I were there, I'd be happy to spend an afternoon wrapping your gifts. Course, you'd have to feed me!

I don't care how much you hate wrapping all of them individually, Billy J, you must!!!! We love all the unwrapping - so there!

I may just take a page out of Laura's book for some of them though. I am not the world's greatest wrapper, but I'm sure SOMEBODY will appreciate the effort. Some of the stuff is so small I just rolled it up in paper and tied a ribbon around each for me! My lil' sis complained one year she never could find paper to write notes on so I got several packets of Post It notes and wrapped them individually, even the little bitty ones

Do you remember Billy, Carol and you carefully put goodies in those delicious little bags, and I still have them. Too good to throw away. Carol attached the diamond ;Þ D to the bag for Daisy, and I didn't see it at first, a special surprise.

Carol and I were talking about you, Shane and the doggies yesterday.

My middle name is Martha. I save paper bags, cut the ends off, turn them inside out, spray them with wter, iron them, then paint them. A big brush, gold paint, you're set! OK, I've only done two this year. LOL I have raffia, I have some gold tinsely kind of stuff, I have every ribbon and bow known to man. And this year, I have no gifts to wrap.

Well, darlin', I can see why. Everyone saw them from last year and said, "Girl, that woman is certified Kra---azy!"

I returned to the Dollar Tree and was looking to see if they had some small boxes, etc., to wrap the small gifts in. Well, they didn't; but, they had these sweet little paper sacks with handles, 3 for $1; well, those would work just peachy for *whisper* you know who's little gifts*; then I turned the corner and lo and behold they had all these Christmas stockings and bottle socks, just a dollar each...hee hee hee, I wonder if they'll take the wrapping paper back?

I like wrapping presents. I especially like foil paper and stuff that's shiny. And I LOVE curling ribbon!!!
