Day 12 favorite tip of all

Make Christmas Wrapping Central in your house!

Find a place to put up a card table, cover it with a Christmas table cloth and put all your gift wrap, tape, scissors, gift tags, ribbon in one place. I even stash gifts to be wrapped under the table.

I use cute little buckets from the dollar spot at Target to hold all of my paraphrenalia. Scissors, gift tags, tape and pens in one.

Decorative gift trims in another.

I used to have rolls of ribbon flung all over the table. Until I made out this ribbon holder.
I used a dowel that I cut down. Then I drilled a hole in a circle plaque and used strong glue (E6000) to attatch them together.

Super handy!
We made it! 12 days of Christmas projects! I'm not going to lie, it was tough coming up with projects and posting 12 days in a row! But I had the motivation to get most of my projects done! Now I would like to do a giveaway...

The Christmas frame! Just leave a comment and I'll draw a name to send this to! Yay! Merry Christmas!
