Seriously Frugal Gift Wrapping

So………this is my first “video post.”  It is quite embarrassing but I think you might like it.  I just need to get over the fact that I never see myself speak and that running to turn on and off the camera is inevitable until I have my own show…and who knows when that will be.  ;)

So…if you ever wondered what I sounded like or how often I talked with my hands or how Californian I am…well, now you no longer have to wonder…

Anyways…back to the post…in the video I show how to use some household items to make frugal gift wrapping look fab!  No money spent whatsoever!  Yay for free!  (Jumping up and down!)

How do you save money on gift wrapping?

  4. Great job, Ashley! I love the natural look - - I frequenly use the rolls of brown paper from the dollar store to wrap gifts. Now, I'll just collect paper bags too. Love this post!

  6. I love the look of brown bags for wrapping! as for saving, I don't yet. I'm waiting until my kids are a little older and over loving that whole ripping paper to shreds thing. I cannot wait for that day, I hate wrapping all those presents, I plan on making fabric gift bags for the gifts in the future

  8. I knew you would be just adorable! I love you took the time to share with us.I also love the natural gifts wrapped, I also like to use inexpensive scarves, placemats, doilies that I purchase when on clearance or really good sale price.
    Happy Holidays sweetie

  11. Seriously, could you be any cuter? ;) What a great idea and so cute! Last year, we actually used paper bags to wrap my brother's and his family's gifts and the kids colored on it. Your gifts look great.

  14. such fun! Love it! I wrapped several of our gifts with twine too. I never thought to bust out the tulle. I buy it in bulk at the flea market and never use it.
