With Christmas less than a week away, I am just barely wrapping up my shopping (which actually won't be done until Wednesday), but also taking the time to finally wrap said gifts. Working every day until Christmas has put me behind on everything Christmas-y (including this blog) but I am excited to share my wrapping ideas with y'all. Taking inspiration from Zoella's recent post (linked here) and just from Pinterest in general, I decided to try my hand at DIY wrapping. I have recently fallen in love with parcel paper and was very keen about me using it for gift wrapping.
My mother, however, was not very happy with me using it on our family's gifts because... well just because apparently. So I reigned myself in and just used it on Fe's gift and Mindy's.
The reason I love parcel paper is because you can do so much with it. With Christmas looming in, I had to make due with what little I had, which was ribbon, some pieces of my Christmas tree and a tad bit of twine. Luckily, I am very happy with how they came out and I already have plans for Christmas 2016(:
If you want some more inspiration, make sure y'all go check out my blogging buddy (but also my great friend/co-worker) because she just uploaded a post about the exact same thing here! Her blog is called Chloe (which is also her name) and her site is just about the cutest thing ever!
