Wrap it up

20 Nov

Yes.  I’m one of those people who prepares for things way in advance.  I start thinking of Christmas gifts when it’s warm enough to wear flip flops.  So even though it’s only mid November I have actually already wrapped several Christmas gifts for friends and family.  This year I’ve decided to use this great Japanese masking tape that a good friend of mine sent me from Germany.  My mother-in-law also bought me some so I have a pretty good collection of it building.  I also bought some cheap electrical tape at the local Fai Da Te (DIY shop) and I mix that with the Japanese tape.

    Your grandfather (Eric) and I used to wrap all the gifts when I was little. He, too, was very creative – way back in the 50’s – and used newspaper, coloured tape and anything else he could think of. I always lived the wrapping – sometimes even more than what was inside.

    I love wrapping too – but this year, since I have started sewing (only in straight lines) I’m making reusable gift bags out of some cute christmas material I picked up. $4.99/m – which makes 3 bags – I think I’ll actuall save $$!

    I want to make the reusable bags too. But the tape thing is totally addictive. I finally broke downand started to use some of my Japanese tapes.
