Need a new wrapping idea? I've recently come across this idea from one of the "top wrappers"; layering and added a few of my own ideas. I included vintage gift tags and raffia.
The edges of the layers here are folded, to give it a more finished look.
We're using the kids' tree for our tree this year. I just never got a real one yet and this one will do. In our house the kids' tree equals a short tree with colored lights and their own ornaments or some from when my husband and I were children.
The little mouse ornament with the chalkboard was from one of my two public school teachers, Mrs. Niemela. The rest of my education was at home with the best teacher: my mom. :)
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these vintage tags...
and the simplicity of raffia.
