Every year my sisters and I compete to see who has the best Christmas wrapping. We have to submit 3 packages each and based on the criteria of craftsmanship, creativity, originality, and theme our parents judge and select a winner. I have to admit (while I personally feel they were sympathy wins) that the last 2 years I have lost. So this year I thought I would test a few new ideas before deciding what I'm going to do for this year's wrapping. I've been using my signature brown kraft paper for years and years, but this year I just may reach outside the box. I'll definitely post what I finally decide to do and I'll also share the losers (I mean my sisters) packaging for you to see why I am in fact THE QUEEN OF PACKAGING. Until then - here are a few ideas that may help with your Christmas wrapping:
This photo shoot was no where near as eventful as the sugar cookies - but per the usual there were a few little mishaps along the way. For starters I'm not sure why I decided to wear suede boots because the ground was soaking wet and now I have a ring around the bottom of them. For any tips on cleaning suede boots - I'm all ears! Next, Addison (my darling cockapoo) decided that she wanted to be in every shot. She wanted my attention while I juggled each package trying not to let them fall. Fail! I dropped the packages and broke my absolute favorite vintage Christmas ornament. Shortly after the big fall it started to sprinkle a little so in an effort to save the packages, we called it a wrap. You see what I did there? "We called it a wrap".....I crack myself up.
If you have any gift wrapping ideas that you know would definitely help me get my crown back, please please please send them my way - and send them quick - only 8 days til Christmas. Eeeek!
