super simple wrapping...
I'm up doing a bit of late night crafting...painting Christmas gifts. Anyway, earlier today, which is actually yesterday, I wrapped my first batch of presents. Because everything is handmade, the shapes are mostly unusual, so I wasn't sure how I was going to package them. But then I got this idea to basically sew envelopes to fit them.
I tore (no scissors!) a piece of kraft paper, folded it in half and started sewing. One side, turned the corner to the second side, stuck the gift in (while still on the sewing machine), and sewed the last side. A bit of paint for names and decorations, and done! I can't tell you how fast this went! I may never use tape on presents again!
