Creative Ways to Wrap Presents

As a child I remember one year when all my presents were wrapped in the Sunday funnies. Colorful. Inexpensive.

I also remember receiving gifts wrapped in fabric scraps.

What about using reusable containers? Fabric bags, decorative boxes.

Paper bags that you decorate with stickers and/or stamps? I also remember as a kid getting to use a stamp on paper to make my own wrapping paper--wouldn't be surprised if we used newspaper end rolls--again not very expensive.

I also like going to the dollar store for decorative paper bags.

Try these websites for more ideas:

Books from the library can provide helpful suggestions, too!

I think you might find this site useful. It may take a little while to load but it has photographs and tips in the form of a slideshow.

Great blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you propose starting with a free platform like
Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many
options out there that I'm totally confused .. Any suggestions? Cheers!

First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I've had a
difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
I do take pleasure in writing but it just
seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just
trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you
could a little more in the way of content so
people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful
lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of
plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of exclusive content
I've either written myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any ways to help protect against content from being stolen? I'd truly appreciate it.

Hey this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
