Even if you've been a busy little elf and already finished all of your holiday shopping (jealous!),there's still the little matter of making your gifts look as gorgeous outside as they are inside.And that's where we (and a loyal STF named Maria) come in with some great DIY gift wrapping ideas in honor of Reader Appreciation Day!
Maria is a hardcore DIY-er,and writes to us,"I'm always coming up with affordable,inventive ways to make my gifts look good and I thought my fellow Slaves to 威廉希尔备用网址Fashion would want to know about a few of them!" They are,in a word,brilliant.Here's my favorite:
"You can turn any funny-sized gift into its own little snow globe," Maria says."Just wrap it in some tissue,then place it inside a clear cellophane bag (you can buy these in bulk for almost nothing) or a large ziploc and fill it with whatever you want,like tinsel,ribbons,paper snowflakes,sparkly confetti,or even sequins.It makes the gift feel so much more special to open!"
How cute is that?She also has some smart ideas for going green and saving money:
Instead of using styrofoam packing peanuts or even tissue paper,go biodegradable with your packing materials and use realpopcorn!
Make the wrapping part of the gift--choosea beautiful scarfinstead of expensive,one-time-use only wrapping paper.
Go classic: Buy a bunch of plain white boxes and a big roll of black satin ribbon and treat everyone to someBreakfast at Tiffany's-style elegance.
