Hello lovely ladies.
I had a great response to my post on making your own wrapping paper (here) and I thought you might like to see what it looks like now it's all finished and wrapped! With just a week to go until the big day I've actually managed to finish all my wrapping which I am very chuffed with!
I'm not one for self congratulation but I am really pleased with how it looks. The cooking twine I bought here was really strong and durable so I was able to pull it tight round the presents. The gift tags I bought from Oliver Bonas in October reduced from £5 a box to £1.25 a box, and luckily I bought two and had just enough! They are nice tags however next year I will probably make those too! I ended up using just over 4 rolls of paper (HOWEVER me & my other half are both from large families so we use more than most probably would) so with that and a couple of stamp purchases, all in the total came to just over £11, which is a huge saving from last years £25ish, so also really pleased with that too!
So ladies, what do you think? If I was to give you a gift wrapped like this would you like it?
