Every year I try to have a theme with my Christmas wrapping paper. This year I found some really pretty Marimekko paper at Crate & Barrel in red/green and silver/gold patterns.
The paper was so pretty, I didn’t want to put ribbon and ugly gift tags on it, so I cut out letters with the recipient’s name and glued them on to the wrapped gifts.
I am so excited to give these presents, but halfway through cutting out about a hundred tiny letters, I realized that most of my efforts would end up in the trash. In the meantime, the presents are lined up looking awesome on our dining-room table. I might just let people open them up on Christmas day.
