Giftwrapping Intro

So we sell gift wrap at my mind's eye, and we sell it by the sheet, which comes in really handy because it fits a shirt box perfectly, you know, have to do any cuts, and we'll just click to our shop, and we're going to scroll down there we go on dso, we have five different sheets of colors in our gold foiled dot wrapping paper, and they're really, really fantastic wait paper so it's a little bit heavier than the paper, you're going to get on a roll, so it makes it really lovely for wrapping and even packaging things. I'll show you that I'm a little bit, eh? So this is where you would find are wrapping paper. I'm also going to talk a little bit about some other items in our shop, and you confined most of those in the paper crafting supplies. This is where you'll find most of the supplies that we've been using in our craft kits, and I highly recommend our christmas on market street. Everything kit are cozy, everything can are my story, everything kit, and we haven't showed a lot of hallo...

ween, but we also have a really adorable, vintage halloween inspired line that was extremely popular this year, but the everything kids are already on sale, so then with the twenty five percent off, you're going to get a really big sale on dh so you can see because they already coming kits, we put them at a slightly discounted price anyway. So this is where you're going to want to come to grab a lot of the supplies we are using? Let's, go back to the power point. So we sell five colors of beautiful gold foiled wrapping paper. We have meant cream, coral, black, kraft every year as I'm starting, tio gift wrap presence. I know holiday seasons air coming up, I will create a little kit for myself and that's generally, because I'm having to wrap in, like different areas of the house where other people aren't, you know, hiding from our kids and our spouses so that we can wrap things. So I keep it in just a little suitcase that I can take with me anywhere I go. And every year I try to coordinate my wrapping paper. S o I pick a few specific colors or patterns that I know work really well together, and we'll look could under the tree. Yes, I care about that on dh, so I create a little kit that goes along with that. So, like, last year, everything in my kit was gold, and so all the accents that I sort of added in the ribbon and the tags and things like that were gold this year. I'm actually using a lot of items from our scrapbooking mind to just create like fun looking elements. Eso have gold foil letters from christmas on market street and some of the mixed bags from market street and cozy. I have these really your little buttons we call flare, um, our gold puffy stickers and just a lot of like, fun little things. So aside from those, we also have an entire section which will also be in our store of christmas gift tags on dh. This is just a winter gift tag doesn't say merry christmas or anything, so you could use it for any type of wrapping. We have four different styles of tags correct here, so we have a happy holidays with the red glittered chevron. We have a gold foiled stag. We have a plaid, which is plata's everywhere this year and that's really fun. And then we also have a really beautiful scripted merry christmas on by, like these big tax, because there's tons of room to write a little note when you're sending it off. So I also will have those in my kit this year, and I just do that because it's practical it's, easy to kind of go with this. Stags and the more wintry thing this year I've got some wooden tags you can buy these pre cut and drilled from hobby lobby I've got red glitter stickers from, um, are my cozy line, and then I also usually keep yarn, ribbon and little tiny trees because I love to add those two packages as well. So that is just my tip to you, it's, just handy to kind of keep everything in one place so that you're not constantly looking for things as you're rapping, I probably still will be today had I have it all right here? Um, ok, so depending on what style or color you're going with, you would collect different items like here I loved the mint in the craft and so all the tags and different elements I used lineup and match with that, and we do sell those fund paper clips is well, um, and here are those christmas tags, and last time I was wrapping, I just a lot of times we'll go to like the dollar section to grab little things like that little wooden nutcracker to add on it just makes it feel a bit special, but it's really inexpensive.

Watched a little of this and was disappointed by her frequent mumbling, making it impossible to understand quite a bit of what she was saying. I didn't find her ideas very innovative but didn't watch the whole thing.
