I'm done!

I finished my wrapping!!!!!  Yahooooooooooo!  I can't tell you how GREAT I feel :)

Since my tags had a fun feel to them this year, I wanted my wrapping to as well.  I picked up solid lime green and solid red wrapping paper at Hobby Lobby, in the regular wrapping section.  I had Kraft wrapping paper already at home, to supplement if I ran out of the bright colors.  I had a vision of white ribbons running around the packages, but when I was walking through Michael's Friday night and saw this stuff, I knew it would be PERFECT for the look I was going for!


I mean Puff Ball Holidays?  Come on, if that doesn't scream fun I don't know what does!  The best thing about this stuff?  It was only like $3.99 for a HUGE package.  I had plenty to do all of our gifts.

Here's what I ended up coming up with:




Adding this puff pall ribbon/yarn stuff was so quick and easy and it added the perfect fun embellishment to all of our gifts!  Don't they look like little snowballs?

I have two gift card holders I need to make, but I'm not sure what look I'm going for on those yet.  One is for Abie's teacher, a boy :)  I have such a hard time with male papercraft gifts.

Have a great Tuesday!  Thanks for stopping by today to see me and I'll see you tomorrow with another project :)

  2. Oh wow - your packages are so pretty! I saw some yarn like that and couldn't quite figure out how that turns into something other than puff balls on a string. I love this idea! It looks so cool. Maybe I'll think twice the next time I see it. :)

  9. Super cool, love that ribbon/yarn. Totally looks like snowballs! What a fun idea. I'm torturing my children and not tagging anything until they go to bed Christmas Eve this year :0)Maverick, being 16, is totally fine with it and said it was a great idea so we are going with it. I think he likes to torture his brothers more than I do :0) Hugs!
