I'll show what I got for her once she's received her package - don't want to spoil the surprise! Instead I can show how I wrapped up these little things - my favorite way to wrap things - with regular brown Kraft paper & my sewing machine! I've been wrapping like this for years, it's especially helpful when you're running out the door to a party last minute & don't have any appropriate wrapping paper.
Now I don't even buy regular wrapping paper, just a big roll of the brown stuff every once in awhile. In a pinch you can even use a paper grocery bag. Who cares about the writing on the inside?
It's super easy to do - I first cut a rectangle out of the paper that when folded in half will make a little bag that's big enough to hold the gift. Sew up the 2 sides of the paper to make a bag, stuff the present inside, then sew a bunch of criss-crossing lines to seal it up. In this instance I had red thread on top & green in the bobbin, and flipped the present over for a few lines to get some green showing on the top too. So easy.
Easy, economical & it looks pretty cute, too. My favorite way to wrap presents! I can't wait to get my package from my secret partner!
Also our elf, Reginald, has returned for the season. We had him last year & Mason loved it, so of course he had to come back this year. Now Grahm gets all excited & wakes up in the morning running off to see where Reggie has landed for the day. This morning he was feeling a little snacky & was hiding in the box of donuts.
