wrapping paper...

I have been having fun making yo yo's, to put on top of presents.

I have heard of people wrapping the gifts, they put under their tree, in the same color scheme before. Before now, I never have given it much thought. Well, guess what? I gave it some thought...and am going to give it a try. I LOVE the reds, and whites. I am going to add a splash of green too. I actually, am kind of having fun, purchasing wrapping paper that match. Have you ever gone with a color scheme, for the gifts under your Christmas tree? I would love to hear about it. :)

I'm one of the crazies that does this...It all has to coordinate with my tree (blues, silvers and whites) and if someone brings a gift over that doesn't "go" with my gets shoved to the back of the tree! Ha.

I am loving all of that wrapping paper! I would love to do that but am too cheap. I buy my paper on clearance the day after Christmas. With 5 kids you have to wrap a ton and I go through a ton of paper. Hopefully one day though.

Love the yoyos.

I love coordinating wrapping paper. On the real crazy years I even re-wrapped gifts that were given to us so they would match.

Last year I started something different. Each child's gifts are wrapped in a different color paper. Of course Santa has his own paper that brings the whole theme together.

And I wonder why Christmas makes me crazy!!!

Yep-I also try to match my paper. We have a 4 ft tree that goes on top of a half-wall above our tv-so everyone can see all the presents-I want them to match my decor-so I usually buy paper to match! I love having my tree up high...the kids can't ruin the tree and the presents don't get torn! Someday we'll have room to put a bigger tree up.

Oh yes, I always have to have a color theme, and a different paper for each child. I love the papers you've picked out!
