these are a few of my favorite things!
And now you will be humming The Sound of Music all the live-long day! You're welcome!

Now don't get me all wrong, I do love me some color. And I do love me some Christmas color. But when I saw this ginormous roll of brown paper at Home Depot, we had a love connection. I was browsing the isles of paint, flirting with some Martha Stewart glitter paint when that role of paper whistled at me. I played it cool, did a few laps around the paint counter, and casually made my way over to that paper role. And then I took him home with me...I think I may be on the naughty list now ;).
Best part...he's super cheap and wraps, like, a million gifts! Best bang for your buck!
So if you are in a bind, staring down a TON of gifts to wrap, I suggest wrapping with neutral brown paper and jazzing it up! Here are 3 different ways I accessorized my sexy brown paper gifts:
1. Glitter me pretty! Below is a little tutorial on adding glitter and glam to your wrapping...and I never turn down glitter (or glam for that matter).
1| Wrap it!
2| Create a design with glue...I used the end of a paint brush to make the dots and the hair side to make swirls and trees.
3| Glitter it! Cover all that glue in glitter.
4| Dump it...shake off all that extra glitter.
2. Yarn. Yarnny yarn yarn. Sting's big-boned cousin...yarn. Oh I do love yarn, and I love the little pom-pom yarn balls as much as the next girl! I used this tutorial to make my snowball-reminiscent poms.
3. Keep it neutral...why mess with a good thing? Like the brown package itself, twine adds a simple touch that can't be beat (unless you use glitter ;) ).
And remember...perfection is not the goal! So have fun with it. Go wild! It's just going to be ripped to smithereens anyways! Happy wrappings!
