Wrapping It UpWednesday, December 05, 2007
I am the worst gift wrapper. Some people can make all the creases super-sharp, and get the angles at the ends perfect, but I just can't. No matter what. I really have tried!
What I do, though, is to make it up with pretty wrapping paper. I went to a specialty shop to get some pretty paper for this year (my Chanukah papers are all the usual blues, but for my friends who celebrate Christmas, I'm doing a preppy theme with pink and green) and I found this fabulous pink paper with glitter all over it - and the glitter doesn't come off at all!
This year, we 'adopted' a teen girl in one of the state homes for Christmas, and so I thought this paper (it's called glitterpaper) would really look neat for her presents...but it is driving me crazy:
The other day, I found some Chanukah paper that Hallmark makes - it's cute:
--and the super-smart thing is that they gave a grid pattern on the back of the paper so that you know you are cutting in a straight line! Yay! Why did no one ever do this before!?
