Just a few gift wrap ideas if you like to go the red and white route. Sometimes simple traditional is best. Aren’t those spools of ribbon neat-o? Sundance has cool seasonal products right now.

More holiday crafting goodness:
Wreaths!
Garlands!
Gift wrap!
The Weekly Awesome!

And a few baby related things too:
What I know for sure
This kid’s getting a teepee
And a cool quilt too
Yes, I’m having a boy. No, I’m not disappointed

Thanks for all your swell comments this week. Project Holiday 2011 continues Monday. Happy weekend.

    I love the simple wrapping! To me that looks better than the super fancy wrap jobs.

    Aaahh, this blog makes me so happy.

    And you’re having a boy! That’s great! I have a ridiculously large family, so the kids never stop coming, and I’ll admit that little boys are so much easier to handle than little girls. I rather the girls grow up quickly and the boys stay young forever. They’re all adorable, though. I’m a girl, by the way, and I have one sister and three brothers. Having the boys around is simply awesome. Good luck with everything. :)

    Love the red & white theme. The striped tape is super cute! Think I’m going for red & glitter this year… hmmm, will have to see how that turns out!

    i’ve been loving sundance this season. it may also be good to mention that they have this years wrapping available in their outlet store in Sugarhouse, that way you don’t have to pay shipping if you’re local.

    ps.thanks for the mention on babble:)

    It’s my fave too! I absolutely love the Nordic snowflake pattern on the left. I also think it’s lovely to add a little light blue. Check out this color combo:
