I am going to just say something - I don't enjoy wrapping presents. However, I do enjoy making them look pretty! This year is a bit more fun due to my new toy (cameo!).
One thing I always do every year is do a little add on present on top as part of the decoration. Usually something handmade like an ornament. This year I'm liking a mix of shiny wrapping paper and plain brown paper and of course the custom tags!
The hand toasty and merry moose ornament (tutorial and free pattern coming to the blog soon.) decorate these:
This next present is for a sweet little girl and so I used monster mitts as decoration
another idea for wrapping a girl gift - use the tag as a clip holder
For grandparents I am adding on a photo ornament (picked up those ornaments on boxing day last year - originally $6 for 3 - got them for $2!) Love shopping boxing day for the next years wrapping 'needs'
