Today was a great day.
Wayne took the day off of work so we could get our Christmas shopping done.
I was smart this year, I didn't buy anything until we went shopping together.
The reason…Wayne is like a little kid himself and he likes to play Santa Claus during the holiday.
So even if I was completely done with shopping, he would insist that we needed to go shopping, lol.
Not only did we (almost) complete our shopping, we also wrapped them all.
When I say "we", I mean Wayne wrapped and I wrote out the tags ;)
No matter how much he begged to change jobs ;)
I also cleaned out/organized my Christmas wrapping container.
I discarded all of those tiny pieces of wrapping paper that I save, thinking that I may need a tiny piece. But I have never ever had a gift that tiny to have to wrap ;)
This wrapping paper container has two inner shelves.
If I just wanted this container for wrapping paper, I wouldn't need the shelves, but I like everything in one area.
This shelf holds my daughters advent calendars.
They haven't used them for years, but I still want to keep them. Each pocket holds a mini ornament for a tiny tree the girls each had in their rooms when they were younger.
The second shelf holds all of the wrapping essentials.
Tape, scissors, tags, ribbon and some small gift holders.
There is a lid that fits very tightly so all of the goodies stay put for the next year.
I was thinking of keeping all of my wrapping paper in one area, no matter what the occasion it is for.
But when we wrap for Christmas, it is usually a wrapping marathon, so I think (for me) its best to have Christmas papers and such together.
I do keep all of my gift bags together though….but I am a wrapper, more than a gift bag giver ;)
Are you a wrapper, or a gift bag type of person?
How do you store your wrapping paper and accessories?
Hope you all had a very Creative Friday :)
I did :)
I made 10 gift card holders during my Friday Night Scrapbooking :)
