3 Ways to Gift Wrap Tic Tacs – Old Meets New

Are you ready for the festive season or are you like me still doing Christmas shopping and wrapping presents?

I have been looking after Kayleigh for the last 2 weeks, her surgery went well and she is now at home and getting better every day.

Yesterday it snowed here and everything looked so pretty, it has helped to get me in the mood for Christmas.

Today I have 3 different ways of wrapping the large boxes of Tic Tacs, my hubby adores them and they make great stocking fillers.

When I was choosing which cardstock, DSP and stamps to use I picked ones that would be ideal for male or female recipients.

Elegant Emerald Box for Mint Lindor Chocolates

My daughter Kayleigh is amazing, she is kind, caring and beautiful inside and out.  As soon as I see her she cheers me up and she always makes me laugh.

Swirly Snowflakes All Year Round

To cut down on the cost of Christmas I’ve been making some handmade Christmas gifts. One of the things I’ve been making is covered notebooks, I went Christmas shopping with my daughter recently and I couldn’t believe how expensive they were.

It is definitely a lot cheaper for me to buy some plain notebooks and cover them myself using the colours and designs I want to use.

Thank you for joining me today for another It’s A Wrap Wednesday project. Christmas is less than 3 months away so today’s project shows how to make a simple bottle of wine look classy and expensive (whoever receives this will think you spent a lot of money on the gift wrapping).
