Wrap it up, Ship it out!

 
Let's chat gifts.
Wrapping them to be more specific.
I've never been one of those people that go out of the way to wrap my gifts. Typically, if it's a birthday or something, I am digging in all my closets at the last minute to find an old 'Happy Birthday' bag to reuse recycle.
But, thiiiiiis year.. I want that all to change. Will it? Probably not. Why do I say that? Because we are about to talk Pinterest and..well.. nothing I pin ever really happens so I am just speakin what I know.
 
I'm a big fan of craft paper. I'm not sure why but the simplicity of it is just really beautiful. It is especially beautiful when you add a big bow or other accent on top. This helps whoever you're giving the gift to to forget what craft paper is actually used for. Wrapping meat. Why not wrap your loved ones gifts in the same thing butchers use to wrap raw turkey breast? I digress..
 
I still like craft paper. And, I think after you see what I have pinned, you will be hopping in your car and heading to the closest Winn Dixie (do they even make those anymore?) to grab up all the butchers paper you can find. [Tip: I don't think that's where you get it. Don't bother your butcher. I can't have any readers losing a finger over some butcher paper.]

I'm partial to the very first one and the very last. They seem pretty simple. Maybe I could do this after all. The first one is just craft paper with a little twine/dollie and a white marker. Easy-peezy lemon breezy? No? The last one is just craft paper with some shiny ribbon & trinkets with either letter stickers or a stencil with a black sharpie. I think I will probably opt for the last one.
Ha. I'm still acting like this is actually going to go down. Trust me, if it does, you will be the very first to know.
Coming from the girl who hasn't even thought about putting a tree up or get a single decoration out.
Need I remind you that this is a no judgement zone? This means you can't judge me either. Fair is fair.
Go wrap some presents, you filthy animals. :)
