Works for Me Wednesday- DIY Holiday Edition!

Thanks Jo for today’s blog!

Have you ever buy a roll of wrapping paper and then realize that you don’t have enough just when you thought you were done wrapping presents?

Well what I sometimes love to do if I run out of Christmas paper is grab an old brown paper bag (sometimes you get the nice sturdy ones from the supermarket with the handles) and cut it just right so it resembles a sheet of paper. Turn it on its blank side and use pretty decorative stamps or metallic markers to embellish it. You can also do with a roll of white butcher paper. If you have kids you can also let them embellish it and give it a personal touch. Use their hands and feet in Christmas colors to make it extra special for the Grandparents!

With the left over scraps you can make lovely little gift tags for it also. I like to wrap mine with butchers twine because it gives it that rustic/country feel. A simple and cheap way to recycle that leftover paper you have no use for!

Share your tips for getting through the holidays at!
Thanks to We are THAT Family for hosting Works for Me Wednesday!

    I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your site.
    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility
    problems? A few of my blog audience have complained about my website not
    working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari.
    Do you have any advice to help fix this issue?
