I love wrapping gifts. Usually I'm so obsessive about it during the holidays that as soon as I purchase a gift, I must wrap it right away. This year I've decided to wrap in batches instead, for efficiency's sake, but my pile of unwrapped gifts is making me twitch a bit.
I've been using kraft paper for wrapping the past couple years, and this year I decided to pair it up with baker's twine instead of my usual colored ribbons. Since I like to decorate with blue and red for the holidays (well, for EVERY day!), I have a spool of baker's twine on hand in both colors. Of course, a rainbow of colors would make me even happier, but that's a bit of an investment for someone who doesn't do much wrapping outside the holidays.

Usually you wouldn't refer to baker's twine as glam or elegant. But I beg to differ with this black and gold glitter twine. Had to include this beauty shot for my girl Kimberly of Swoonworthy. It would only be more appropriate for her if the twine were leopard-printed.

We have our first, and largest, holiday gift exchange this weekend, so I've got some major wrapping to do tomorrow. Before then, I have a craft project on my list that I hope will make my gift recipients happy even before they open their packages. I'll be sure to share, whether it's a win or a bust!
