Christmas 2011: Gift Wrapping With Scraps

Do you always seem to have random Christmas scraps and ornaments? Somehow I always end up with a bag of Christmas odds and ends. Even though I never integrate the scraps into my Christmas decor, I can’t seem to toss them out or drop them off at a donation center.

My treasured scraps ALWAYS come in handy when wrapping gifts. They help make each present personalized and fun. So, if you have scraps of Christmas shoved away somewhere in storage, DO NOT throw them out when you go to set up your holiday decor. Save them! I promise, that they will come in handy when its time to start wrapping present after present… after present.

Here are a few ideas that were haphazardly thrown together. Scrap wrapping is the hottest trend of Christmas 2011… I swear.

    BeccaMarie - Dang girl! I’m so glad that you guys stop to put together stuff like this the season before so that we can use the ideas for when we need them. I can just see you at your kitchen table wrapping Christmas gifts a week before Halloween. But I will SO do this! Thanks for taking the time to put them together.

    mandy - I’d be perfectly happy if someone gave me a present like this and it was empty!

    keighley - Becca Maria- You better believe I was at my kitchen table with a Christmas Tree Scent candle burning!

    Mandy- From now on I will mail you these empty presents!

    Christy - I really like some of the ideas on this blog. I have to admit, however, it is easily the rudest thing I have ever read. I often get bored of reading blogs, people are way too personal on them – but after perusing yours, I was confused about many of the photos – they seem discordant. So I read…..and I am very disappointed. Such a cute blog, and so many angry, nasty things on it.
