We did a little Christmas shopping tonight. I found some cute wrapping paper at Target. I can't stand the thin paper that tears when you touch it. It has to be the thick paper you can leave a good crease in.

I love this paper from Papyrus, but at $8.95 a roll I don't think so!
I also love this paper from Container Store, but at $8.49 a roll that's still steep.

I did buy most of my paper last year at Container Store though. They got major points from me because they showed me how to make those big beautiful bows out of ribbon. The lady in the store took her time with me and spent like 30 minutes showing me how to make all kinds of bows! So nice! I just hope I haven't forgotten all the skills I learned last year???

Now this people is the best invention created by man besides the wheel I guess...and a bunch of other things. But for me it is a masterpiece! I love it and how did I ever live without it? It's one of those Scotch paper cutters, you just slide it along your wrapping paper and whoa-la!!!! A STRAIGHT LINE! Well, that's all for now! Sister is coming to visit me from Vegas next week...I'm getting SOOOOO SUPER excited! Already thinking of all the fun things we are going to do together :)

And you've gotta love new bow tricks. Maybe you can show me sometime? I'd love to get some new ideas on how to spice up my gift wrapping techniques. :)
