Welcome to Day Two of Blogmas! I did miss yesterday, I was incredibly busy and didn’t have time to write, so I’m going to be double posting. This post is going to be about my 2018 Christmas cards and a little look at how I’ve done some present wrapping and we’re going to start with the cards.
This year my cards are Charlie Brown themed and I think they’re super cute. When I pick out cards each year I don’t have a predetermined theme in mind, it’s usually whatever catches my eye and I never do the same card two years in a row. It’s a little hard to tell in the pictures, but Snoopy and Woodstock are raised up so it gives it some dimension. I like that the design on the envelope extends to back so you see something when you’re opening it and I like that the saying on the inside isn’t leaning one way or another and it’s just a nice holiday sentiment.
So, on to the present wrapping portion of this post. This year I’m exchanging gifts with a good friend of mine like I always do but the difference is we’re in different states, so we’re shipping gifts to each other and that meant that I had to finish my shopping early and get these wrapped up and sent out, which I did. I find present wrapping to be very creative and therapeutic, so I really like it. I’m not going to say what these gifts are, but I’m going to be doing a Friendsmas post in the coming weeks and I’ll talk about what we got each other. When I wrap presents I try to have a theme, think about the person and tie everything together. So I’m going to start off by saying that this isn’t everything for this person, just what I had at the time when I took these pictures. For my wrapping paper I used the blue because I like the pattern and the fact that it’s double sided, the gold was for the stocking stuffers which I wouldn’t normally wrap up, but I thought it would be cuter that way and I used the red as a tie in between the stocking stuffer presents and stocking itself which is red. I do have bows, but this felt more like a ribbon occasion, so I did silver with the blue paper, gold with the red and silver on the gold to make it feel cohesive and because silver and gold is a popular theme for Christmas. I then curled the ribbon. Like I said I’ll be doing a Friendsmas post so you’ll be able to see all of the gifts together. I think it came together nicely and I’m happy with it.
That about wraps it up for this post, when you guys wrap presents do you prefer bows, ribbon or both?
Until next time, what do you guys look for in Christmas cards and have fun wrapping presents :).
