Wrapping Things Up

I always try to hand-decorate the wrapping paper when we are giving gifts. It is a chance to be creative, have fun, and produce something different in this age of mass produced everything.
The basic supplies are plain brown paper, ribbon, tape, stencils and stencil paint, rubber and foam stamps, colored ink pads, and a small foam brush or two.
I have made many tags over the years by using free Christmas graphics found on various internet websites and editing them to include names, messages, etc. I save the tags to disc for future use.
