I was recently challenged by the folks over at Dollar General Gift Center to show my Christmas wrapping prowess on the frugal budget of $10. Never one to turn down a dare I accepted!
Ten dollars goes a long way at Dollar General so I was able to get quite a bit of wrapping supplies. I bought two rolls of wrapping paper, two sets of specialty bows, boxes, tissue paper, two rolls of ribbon, and a little trio of glittery present-shaped ornaments. (Psst…you can find Dollar General on Facebook here!)
My inspiration came when I found these two rolls of ribbon. I fancy myself a bit of a ribbon snob but this was the good stuff! Especially that amazing glittery ribbon. When I found the polka dot and foil wrapping paper I knew the look I was going for!
I love that I was able to find the basics (boxes and tissue paper to pack the interior of my gift-in this case jammies for my boys to open on Christmas Eve) as well as all the fancy stuff to make the wrapped presents look extra special!
Seriously, I love the opposing polka dots and blingy sliver! I attached the ornaments from the smaller presents as a little something extra! Obviously I could have wrapped many, many more presents with the amount of supplies I bought but being the procrastinator I am this year, I’m still not finished shopping!
Have you finished shopping? What kind of wrapper are you-basic and fast, or blingy and fancy? Where do you shop for wrapping supplies?
