This year I decided to go a little crazy and extend the plaid obsession I've had for awhile to my Christmas gifts. I gathered all my lace, ribbon, buttons and plaid fabric, and made a complete mess of the studio.
I used brown kraft paper for most of the wrapping, and then added bows and other pretties I had in my stash. The girly ones are a bit easier to 'glam' up, and I used more plaid on the manly ones. No gender bias here, it's just the men in my life are not interested in sparkly things. My daughter took pics of hers and didn't want to tear into them because they were so pretty. Mission accomplished. Merry Christmas!
