Wrapped Up

Does wrestling with piles of gift wrap, ribbon, tape, and scissors at holiday time make you feel like an unwieldy octopus with tangled tentacles and a Santa hat?

Wipe away your tears, gentle elves, for I am your humble authority on Perfectly Wrapped Presents.

Turns out there actually are a few tricks to make things easier ... and if you use light blue paper and white ribbon like I did for the photos in this article, you get the added benefit of pretending everything you're wrapping came from Tiffany's, too!

My overachieving sister-in-law wrapped everything in leftover fabric last year using, yes, a glue gun. We were suitably impressed.

I bet that looked great! Must have been challenging to open though :)
