    Where did this idea come from anyway that Christmas presents hada be wrapped? I either cut the paper too big or too small; the paper doesn't fold right, won't fit around what I'm trying to wrap and my corners look like I stomped on them. In our family all I have to do is put who the present is to, they will know who it is from by the way it's wrapped. This is from a guy who could take a flat piece of wood and in a couple of days create an heirloom-style jewelry case but give me a sheet of paper and I'm a wuss.

    ME too!

    Throw them in decorative paper bags or draw your own cartoons on the bag with a bow and call it a day!

    Aren't we all grateful we are blessed to have presents to wrap?

    I do pretty good wrapping... if I do say so myself.

    I hate wrapping presents too because I suck at it. I only wrap the ones for the little kids. Everyone else gets a bag with tissue paper.

    I can do a bang-up job at wrapping, but I would MUCH rather be able to "take a flat piece of wood and in a couple of days create an heirloom-style jewelry case."
    Besides, that why you should shop at places that wrap for free or pay someone to do it!

    I learned form my dad who if I am not mistaken had perfection OCD...lol....I am not too shabby but do not come close to the nice wrapping my dad did.

    My Dh on the other hand could use 3 different types of paper on one gift and a whole whack load of tape, its kinda funny to see but hey at least he did it :)

    Sometimes I don't even feel like wrapping, so I have this large santa bag stashed away, I place sticky name tags on everything and place the sack in front of the tree in the middle of the night, kids think Santa left his sack behind, and then poof sometime during the day the sack magically disappears...Ahahahahaha
     
  10. Hi! Isn't that weird? I lovelovelove the wrapping and making 'pretty boxes' part (I am thankful I have presents to wrap).
    My husband hides his presents til Christmas Eve and has a 'wrapping blitz' and it's never tidy, just festive!
