Gift Wrapping Frenzy & Homemade Gift Tags

Hi everyone.  It’s getting very close to Christmas and down the home stretch for gift wrapping.

I love to gather my favorite ribbons and trims before I begin wrapping.  I use old yarn spools to wrap new ribbon around.

This year I stuck mostly with red and white.

I used an old wood cutlery tray to corral everything.

Did anybody happen to see these awesome wooden spools of ribbon at TJ Maxx?

There’s 3 different ribbons/cords on each and they revolve independently of each other.

I decided to put a spin on my holiday tags this year by adding Bible verses that were related to gift-giving.

I printed them out on my computer, used shaped scissors to cut them out, then glued them to the backs of cards I already had.

I still enjoy my ritual of turning on Christmas music and wrapping away.
Do you have all your gift wrapping complete?
Blessings,
Kim

Kim, you've made the act of wrapping gifts a decoration in and of itself. Your spools of pretty ribbon and the wooden cutlery tray are an exquisite way to store the gift wrap supplies. Love the clever spools you found at TJ. I didn't see those, but if I had they would have come home with me.
Merry Christmas to you and your family! ~ Sarah

What a lot of thought and beauty goes into this ritual! I need to "up my game." I love the addition of scripture.
