K.I.S.S. - Holiday Gift Wrapping

The Keep It Simple Solution to Holiday Gift Wrapping.

OK, you've got all the gifts but how are you going to get them all wrapped?
A year or two ago I went to my local dollar store and bought an assortment of those boxes that are preprinted with holiday designs. Just add a little tissue paper and a piece of tape on 2, or all four sides, or ribbon to seal and you're done.
Pick up at your craft store or whereever you can get them a quanity of the white, solid colored, or just plain brown paper handled bags in different sizes. Have the kids glue the recycled holiday card fronts to them with a glue stick. They could also rubber stamp or sponge paint them. You can buy cheap sponges and cut them into the shapes you want. You can even use your holiday cookie cutters as templates. Put the gift in the bag, top with tissue paper on top. Staple or tape close to edge if you've got "peekers".
Both can be saved and reused again!
