6 Holiday Gift Wrap Tips You’ll Want

Today I’m sharing 6 Holiday Gift Wrap Tips You’ll Want. I love gift wrapping and have since I was a kid. You don't have to spend a lot of money to make your gifts and the gift inside look fantastic. I've got a fun story I'm sharing below too. Here are just a few great tips to help you out through the gift giving season:
1. S – Shop your house!!! You will be amazed at what you have in your home that you can use and add to your gift wrap like fabric, buttons, ribbons, jewelry and ornaments.
2. C – Creativity is Key. Let your creativity come out in your gift wrap. Maybe there is a theme you can tie in with their gift and the gift wrap.
3. O – Be Open to Nature – look outside your home. Many of you have wonderful twigs, branches, berries, pinecones and flowers that you can use and add to a pretty package.
4. T – Tie Pretty Bows. Wire ribbon is my favorite and works best.
5. C – Call your friends for a “Gift Wrap Party”. It is so fun to invite a few friends over, bring their gifts and their favorite gift wrap and serve wine or hot cocoa and make a party. You will have fun, laughs, girl time and your gifts will be wrapped in no time.
6. H – Have fun! Be yourself and let your style show through.
Do you like how it spells out S C O T C H?? It’s my favorite.
