As you can see by looking at my gift wrapping and ribbon wall, I'm drawn to pretty papers and I love to use loads of ribbon. I try to stay gender neutral in my wrapping paper roll selections but sometimes I feel a bit silly presenting fellas with frilly wrapped gifts. I had a DVD set to wrap and some fairly masculine looking scrapbook paper was laying around so I decided to give it a try.
One sheet of scrapbook paper almost covered the DVD set but not quite.
I could've just covered that gap with ribbon but I decided to use a second sheet of coordinating paper instead (cut using the middle section of the paper - like trimming triangles off the sides off a diamond).
Then, I simply tied a bit of ribbon around that. Ta da!
If this didn't work out, I was just going to tie some ribbon on the handles of the Best Buy bag the set came home in. ;)
Have you ever watched The Big Bang Theory? Jake and I enjoy this sitcom! Sheldon is our favorite character and the actor, Jim Parsons, who plays him won an Emmy this year. We're actually watching a favorite episode (The Bath Item Gift Hypothesis) right now as I type. :) If you want a fun gift for the self-proclaimed nerds/dorks/geeks in your life that seem to have everything, give them this show!
