Will your week include an evening, or two, of gift wrapping? I'm looking forward to wrapping gifts later this week with a glass of glühwein in hand and a mess of papers, ribbons, glue sticks, spray glue, glitter and ribbon scattered across the table. Looking for some inspiration? Why not try wrapping gifts in fabric remnants? Add a string of baubles if you need to add some sparkle. Embrace kraft paper but add sweet picture applicés from last year's cards or magazines. Wrap pretty paper or fabric in a bow of contrasting ribbon- better yet, two variations of your contrasting hue. And if you fall hard for a specific paper- wrap everything in it! If you have last minute doubts, you can always vary the ribbon. Go at it solo, enlist help, or invite some friends over. The most important thing is to make sure to have fun!
