I love wrapping presents. It feels so special when your present looks pretty, I find I almost don't even care whats inside....almost. I've done the brown paper thing which is nice, but this year I picked out a few papers that I liked and decided instead of buying ribbons and bows...which get pricey, I'd use some craft left overs to decorate. For these gifts I used yarn and twine for ribbons and old sweater and piece of a crocheted table cloth, both of which came from a second hand shop. I like the combination of new and old.
