Yep, didn’t spend a penny on wrapping paper this year. All gifts were being opened here so I just dug out some yardage from my horde and used a little ribbon to wrap gifts. Definitely going to do this next year too. Perfectly reusable wrapping. A friend’s comment when I mentioned the use of fabric to wrap gifts really captures our culture’s mindset, “If you were going to just throw out the fabric you should have let me at your stash.” Nope K, absolutely no intention of throwing the fabric out, just going to fold it back up and put it away to be used later. In K’s defense at least she was looking to use the fabric and was looking at use, but the idea of that wrapping would always be disposable is fairly ingrained in all of us. I think next year for gifts that will be opened elsewhere, by people I can’t request the yardage back without looking a little wacky, I’ll just make bags a la morsbags for wrapping gifts that are going further a field.
Hope your day was great!
