My Layout - Fun Tradition Wrapping Paper
I was so excited to finally use some of the bits & pieces of wrapping paper I've saved each year on today's layout and record our wrapping paper tradition.
Journaling reads: Every year, we buy new Christmas paper to wrap each other’s gifts. I pick out a special paper (or papers) for Robbie’s gifts & he picks out special papers for mine. Then we choose one day the week of Christmas to wrap our gifts at the same time, in different rooms so we can’t see our gifts, of course! We banter back & forth as we wrap: “Oh, you are going to LOVE this gift.” “This is such a great gift, can’t wait ‘til you open it!” When we’re both done, we put everything under the tree and fill the stockings. [The leftover paper gets used the next year for family & friend’s gifts.] The papers on this layout are from 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011.
Do you have any special traditions associated with wrapping paper and the process of wrapping gifts?
