Day 8: It’s time to get all of those presents wrapped (actually, wrapping presents is one of my favorite parts of the holidays and I often leave it to the last minute). For easy and inexpensive present wrapping ideas look around your house for buttons, paper bags, leftover scraps of fabric and paper, and unused paper doilies.

1. with a sharpie marker and your best handwriting, write festive Christmas and holiday words onto a paper sack; wrap the present in the paper sack and tie with a black ribbon
2. tear strips of leftover fabric scraps into long pieces; scrunch up and sew the fabric in a straight line then tie around a present
3. fold a simple doily over the top of a bag; trim the sides
4. accordion fold a piece of colored paper and glue the inside edges together to form half a circle; repeat with another piece of paper to form a circle; glue the two halves together at the ends and embellish the center with a button
