I don’t know about you, but I love to try to make my Christmas wrapping look as lovely and chic as possible. On the other hand, I don’t want to spend a fortune doing it. I ALMOST spent (collectively) $12 of TWO rolls of wrapping paper and $5 on a box of tags when I was at Winner’s the other day. Then, I came to my senses. So I dropped off all those expensive items and headed over to the Dollarama.
Some cellophane with white/ golden designs (stars, chevron) on it ($1 each)
Some gold and brown wrapping paper ($2 for gold, $1 for brown)
Some bows (from Target, $3.50), Christmas balls ($1 or $1.25 for a package of 12), some ribbon (got a package of ribbons + bows from Shopper’s Drug Mart for $4 or $5. The ribbons from the Dollarama were only $1 each)
And some tags ($1)
So I layered the cellophane over the gold (or brown) paper like so:
and wrapped my present with this double layered paper. Then I tied some ribbons around the parcels, stuck a bow on the front, and tied Christmas balls to the excess ribbon that was hanging. Then I added the tag. Here’s one of the finished products:
I think this looks just a good as it would have if I had of used the paper from Winners. Now, I have wrapped my presents just as nice but cheaper. And I have more wrapping paper to work with.
What do you think?
