Brown Paper Packages
I knew I wanted to do something different this year for Christmas wrapping. My sister-in-law always has the cutest ideas. One year she used lime and red tulle around the presents. And another, maybe even same year (?), she tied a little initial ornament on each package. That was my inspiration, along with these two photos:
My supplies, all from Hobby Lobby, except brown paper bags are from Publix. Brown butcher paper is hard to find.
I went ahead and made them this morning. We didn’t go to church because Reid’s still really sick with a cold, I was in a haze of sickness yesterday, but was better today, but I, also, have pink eye. Jack is just fine. I took a lot of breaks this morning because I’d get really tired, so it took a while. (Lowering my immune system with that injection is turning out to be a bad decision…)
I’m horrible at wrapping presents and the paper bags were tough to work with, so Reid did most of the work on that end.
I’m very happy with how they turned out. I just hope our families aren’t offended when they see their presents wrapped in grocery bags.
