‘Twas the Night Before Christmas…

What do groceries and gift wrapping have in common? Well after you are done with grocery cartons or boxes you can use them as a mold for wrapping small to medium sized odd shaped gifts.

This idea is great for hard to wrap action figures of any gift that is not square or rectangular. Just stick the gift inside, then tuck some colorful wrapping tissue or shredded paper in assorted colors around the gift. Then wrap the entire box and your done. Below you’ll find the before and after wrapping pictures as well as some scenes from my home Christmas 2007.
