Tied up with paper tape.
This will be our first Christmas spent at our own house. Heck, in our state. The first year our little family of four won’t pack up to head to Minnesota for Christmas. Instead, we’re staying home, sending gifts to family and friends through the postal system. To keep wrapping simple, I used plain kraft paper, paper tape, and a black Sharpie to decorate the packages.
Paper tape, from Target’s office supply section (I tried to find it online, but I didn’t see a link), adds a festive, unsquishable, mail ready ribbon replacement. And festive flair.
In all honesty, I don’t know what USPS allows for wrapping paper. To prevent issues, I kept decorations flat, sticky, and minimal.
I think it still seems fun and holiday-ish.
For the boys, we’re using fun patterned wrapping paper they picked out and simple stick on bows. Because that’s what makes them happy. Especially the snowmen, deer, and mini bows.
Do you wrap/adorn gifts you mail out? Have you picked up paper tape at Target? Four rolls for four dollars is hard to beat.
