lazy gift wrap
I'm already feeling a little better, because I at least have one gift finished and wrapped! Although as the post title says, I think this is lazy wrapping. Simple and pretty (I think, anyway), but lazy.
This is a paper lunch bag, wrapped with crochet thread. The tags are a printable that I ordered from Hello Clementine (love them!), and then I added a wooden disc which I painted and punched with my Crop-a-Dile.
I didn't even use tape.
My plan is to wrap all of my gifts this way. And if they won't fit in a paper bag, I'll default to kraft paper. And actually the no tape thing really comes from my love of a scene in Sense and Sensibility, where Elinor is wrapping a gift. Of course there's no tape involved so the tie has to hold the paper in place. I think it's quite romantic.
But is this cheating? I hope not.
