Christmas Wrapping Paper

Gold, Stripes, Plaid, and Ugly Sweater: Christmas Wrapping Paper


Almost everything I do happens organically, rarely is anything ever planned, because I'm too busy to plan!  I picked up my Christmas wrapping paper this year at three random place and it worked out beautifully!  Nothing is more trendy this year than plaid, & black/white/gold, &  I personally think the ugly sweaters are starting to get cute again.  Fashion faux pas gone cool.

Paper #1: The black and white stripe is from Hobby Lobby, I found it in the gift wrapping section, not with the Christmas papers.  It was priced $6.99 (use a 40% off coupon on their website), and the quality and quantity was great, their rolls are huge.  There are grids printed on the backs of their papers, which makes it so much easier to cut.  Plus, it's extra thick and doesn't rip when you are gliding your scissors across it.

Paper #2: The red plaid with glittery gold gift tape is from Dollar General.  The wrapping paper quality is mediocre but the gold tape quality was excellent.  The wrapping paper was a smaller roll, but still wrapped a handful of presents.  The cost- wrapping paper was $1 per roll, and glitter tape was $2 per roll.

Paper #3: The green ugly Christmas sweater paper is from the Dollar Tree.  The quality was extremely low, I wasn't able to run my scissors across it without it tearing.  But, the roll was wider than a standard roll so I was able to stretch it further.  I added a little extra tape to my packaging to make it a little stronger, and it looks cute, so it's still a win!

Gift Tag:  The chalkboard label sticker is from the scrap-booking section at Michaels.

Happy Wrapping!!!
