Birthday and Christmas shopping for my family of seven is a relative breeze compared to having to wrap all of the presents I end up buying for them. Gift wrapping is not one of my greatest talents, and I usually leave the wrapping to the last minute.
Wrapped up in holiday stress
I admit that I often feel like the woman in this picture…
Wrapping presents can take so much time. And don’t get me started on all of the odd-shaped packages for the kids that are nearly impossible to wrap without making the gifts look like they were prepared by a 3 year old (or my husband, which is pretty much the same thing…).
Fabric gift bags
I have a friend who moved away a few years ago who was a genius with the sewing machine. I envied her gifts – beautifully wrapped in fabric that coordinated with the occasion. But considering that I am a worse seamstress than I am gift wrapper, I never made any for myself.
I was thrilled when Isabelle offered to send me some cloth gift bags from her online store, VZWraps. The fabrics are delicious and I am so excited by the prospect of not having to stay up all night wrapping presents for our next family event. Now that I have had a taste of her fabric gift bags, I don’t think I’ll be buying any more wrapping paper for next year’s birthdays.
