  1. Great ideas, Pam! I'll be pinning some of those links to make my gift-wrapping a bit more unique than what I've been doing...which is usually plop, wrap and stamp-a-name on it!

  2. Wonderful roundup of ideas! I just wish I had more people that wanted to still exchange gifts.

  3. I bet I know what the "one more" gift is :D And really - one more gift in 6 days is a pretty good way to head into the final stretch!

    Those are some cute wrapping ideas - the sweater sleeve is awesome ... and once you see the construction technique for that Christmas Gift Box, you'll be able to do it any size - it's really simple - I had no idea!

  4. Wow! Thank-you! This is a great collection! A ton of ideas here.

  5. What a fun collection of gift wrap ideas. I'm excited about the repurposed cardboard tube box. Thanks for including my repurposed sweater sleeve gift bags.

  6. What a WONDERFUL round up! Thank you for including my bandana post! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

  7. I love furoshiki but this year we have decided not to buy gifts but to spend time together :) Have a lovely holiday Pam!

  8. So many fun ways to wrap gifts! - and they all look so much prettier than just plain old Christmas wrapping paper!!

    Hope you get all your wrapping done in time Pam and that you and yours have a wonderful Christmas!

  9. Thanks for including some of my gift wrap ideas Pam, you've found loads of lovely inspiration. I especially like the paper stockings and the scrap fabric ribbon ideas.

  10. Oh my gosh, SO many great ideas! I'm going on a Pinning spree!! :) Lisa
