Using Gift Wrap & Ribbons As A Christmas Decoration


When it comes to ribbons, and gift wrap I am like a kid in a candy store. 

Each year I add to my black and white  awning striped signature gift wrap.

I use this as a base and also throughout the entire year for all my gift wrapping.

I like to coordinate my wrappings just like I would for fabric in a room.

If you have to constantly take out your gift wrap to use it, why not use it as part of your Christmas d├ęcor?

Let me show you what I mean…….

I put all of mine together in a French market basket and keep it on display. 

It is always at my finger tips, but looks decorative until I need it again.

Guess what I do with all of my ribbons?

By placing them in a basket I have everything ready to go.

I have another small basket that I keep the scissors, tape and wire. I use it as my little tool basket.

Everything remains neat and tidy as well as decorative.

Last years paper had lots of red since I did a red and white Christmas color scheme.

Let me show you how I coordinated the papers and ribbons for 2012……

Do you coordinate your wrapping papers and ribbons for the Holidays?
