Every year I pick a different theme to wrap my presents.  This year I went with Red, Silver, White and Glitter.  Lots and Lots of glitter!

Have you seen or used this kind of ribbon before?  I've seen it and even bought it before but I hated it.

I had no idea how to use it.  Then I was at the Container Store and they showed me how fun it can be to use.  It's now my all time favorite ribbon!

I don't really like to use those stick on tags.  I like to find pretty ones that match my theme.  We got some really nice ones from Costco this year. 

I also like to use little ornaments to pretty up a package too.  This little glitter reindeer fit in perfect with this years wrapping.  I had some things left over from last year that I was able to use this year. 

This photo didn't come out that great at all.  But, I wanted to show you another favorite ribbon I have this year.  It's a velvet red ribbon with a silver tinsel on the edge.  It has sort of a vintage look to it.

I do like to make pretty bows, add little extras to the packages and make them look as nice as I can. 

However, when I get tired, I just tie a plain bow and I happen to think those packages look just as pretty.

I'm not a stick on bow lover.  In fact, I never even buy those.  I like the big wide ribbon much better.

I still have lots of wrapping to do.  I just wanted to share with you what my presents are going to look like this year.

I can't afford to spend a lot of money on presents this year, but, I can take the time to make them look as nice as I can.

Hope everyone likes them.

And they look just lovely... You really make them look so festive. It will be hard to unwrap them. Well, maybe not, lol... Have a Merry Christmas. Cheers. LJ

I'm curious about the "rope" style ribbon that you mentioned. YOu said the Container Store showed you some things to do with it. I've always loved it, but I don't really know how to use it. Could you share a few tips or how you made the bow in the picture?
