25 Days of Christmas...Day 23!

Wow! Two more posts and the 25 days will be over and Christmas will be here. Are you working on wrapping gifts? I have been done since the past Friday. It took me 2 1/2 hours and four rolls of wrapping paper. There are frugal ways to wrap gifts. Either by the comic section of the newspaper for kids gifts and sports section for the sports enthusiast. Another great idea I found in the Family fun magazine is using empty cereal boxes covered in paper and putting ribbon at the top for handles for a gift bag. Many people even use paper bags or butcher paper and paint the outside or have your child put stickers all over. Gift tags can be made by cutting the extra wrapping paper from previous gifts you wrapped and are not big enough for small gifts. Another good one my grandma taught me is cutting up Christmas cards people gave you. Nowadays it can be difficult because many families make their own cards. When the holidays end I cut the picture out and throw away the border part that says Merry Christmas,Happy Holidays, Seasons Greettings....etc.
Hope you can take these ideas and use them this year and if not,maybe next year! Stay tuned for some more fun stuff tomorrow!
