While it may be a bit early to think about wrapping gifts, I know many of you have already gotten a jump-start on gift shopping. And I have been around long enough to know that there are even some of you who wrap those gifts right away in order to be able to focus on and enjoy the holidays without all of the hustle and bustle.
So this is for you:

 Fun ideas for wrapping gifts, what to do with your left-over wrapping paper with a few decorating ideas thrown in for good measure! In the photo above, we put the end of a roll of gift wrap to good use! Using just some double-stick tape and a pair of scissors, we dressed up all kinds of things to demonstrate our holiday gift-wrapping motto: re-use, re-purpose, re-wrap!

And for more holiday gift-wrapping ideas, pick up the 2011 issue of Holiday with Matthew Mead!

  1. I love the color palette. And can't wait to get my decorations out!

  2. *Loving* the reds. :D Pretty wrapping ideas!

  3. I'm so enjoying the my new HOLIDAY issue but I can't find any of the templates mentioned in the magazine. For example, it says the templates for the NieNie ornaments are available on this website but I don't see them anywhere.



We love to hear from our readers and friends! Thank you for taking the time to talk to us.
