Chrismas is the time to showcase your wrapping skills. Secret #1: Mix/match cheap paper but invest in wired ribbons! It is the presentation that counts more than the item inside. Secret#2: Group items per person and create a Gift Tower of 2 or 3 items. Only 1 present? No problem: wrap the present, then put inside a BIG box, wrap again, then inside another BIGGER box. Wrap and tie a bow. Secret#3: Buy ribbons now at 50% off for next year. Secret#4: Save boxes throughout the year. The REAL SECRET? It's making the bow. Cut ribbon about 2 yards. Cross in the back of the box. Tie to make double notch bows to create 4 petals. To make the 5th petal, fold the remaining tip. Fluff the petals. To make the core of the flower bow, crunch the other remaining tip.
