get wrappin! Ideas for Merry Christmas wrap:

pardon the boring brown walls.
these havent made their way out of my room yet....
alas the tree isn't ready. yet. ugh....

I think I'll concentrate on the fact that I have wrapping done instead!

Here are just a few ideas for different wrappings this year.
I had everything you see already at home, 
that could be considered resourceful, but I think I just buy things for projects...and not get to them. 

using ribbons, all kinds
 this type of wrapping is especially good if your transporting it! 
as in stuffing back of the car.
or into a box to ship. 
because it doesn't matter if a yarn ball feels smooshed. It behaves after nicely. 

 I found the coolest things this year, if you use scallop scissors in wrong way, meaning the left over fabric has the scallop- the opposite looks like the pointy leafs of holly! how great is that. 
no more maneuvering scissors to give little points. 

also, don't be shy about staples! 
they work. 
they're silver. 
they hold lost of things to lots of things!
 I had found these silver letters forever ago at dollar bin Target. Thought about jazzing up couple titles in my Project Life pages. 
I love how simple an initial looks on tag or package. 

 a little washi tape. :-) so love this stuff. 

 here's a couple more that can be transported flat-
Don'tcha love the red white bakers twine. I bought a spool off ebay. Also have them at sweet shop lulu. 
It works on anything! 
But for big packages, I'd suggest wrapping it a couple times so its not dainty. 

so there ya go. 
got some wrapping done over I just gotta get that darn tree done.
