Wrapping Presents

This is my new favorite way to embellish Christmas presents this year. It was so easy and extremely affordable.

I got this roll of polka dot wrapping paper from the dollar section at Target in 2008 or 2009, which went really well with the crepe paper I used. I have a huge roll of off-white twine that I used to reinforce the crepe paper.

Unfortunately, I was in a hurry this day and had to settle for scribbling names on the wrapping paper. If I had the time, I would have made small tags out of card stock using a paper punch, not very time consuming. I couldn’t even find our good sharpie, so my writing is extra sloppy here. Oh well, you get the picture.

Wrapping paper: $1 from Target
Crepe paper rolls: $1 each (and I still have TONS of both red and green rolls left) from Hobby Lobby, but easily found at any craft store.
Twine: $12 but I only used a very small amount of the roll I have. I believe it has 800 yards on the cone. Twelve dollars is really nothing considering how long it will last me. I found it at Xpedx a few years ago.
