Are you like me and you like the gifts under the tree to match or coordinate? It actually makes wrapping simpler if you limit yourself to one or two papers and one or two ribbons. I always have brown craft paper and red wrapping paper on hand, they work for almost any occasion. Then I embellish with cute tags and colorful ribbon.
I've had fun making tags lately, downloading vintage images, printing on cardstock and adding a bit of glitter.
I found this bolt of grosgrain ribbon on sale last summer, $14.00 for 100 yards. That's only 14 cents a yard!
