intend to share. These are now My Scissors. MineI’m big on reuseable cloth giftbags, and those cute pre-patterned boxes that you can use year after year. However, some items just don’t fit in the reuseable containers, so for those we use giftwrap. Also with my close family members I will sometimes use gift bags, and then immediately demand they return them. But for the majority of the presents leaving the house we end up using paper wrap, as it can be pretty awkward asking for the bag back and I am loathe to part with my cherished gift bags. In the end, I’d say we do reuseable packaging for about half of our presents and paper wrap for the other half.
When it comes time to wrap with paper the only tape we use is Scotch brand. I’m not just saying this cause they sent me a package full of goodies. I genuinely love Scotch tape. I’m even fond of the smell of it. However, I am absolutely horrible at wrapping presents! I dread it and rope my husband into doing most of the dirty work.
Seriously, I am a complete gift-wrapping klutz which means my husband ends up doing most of the wrapping (though I am stuck wrapping his presents. Sigh) . When he saw the pile of Scotch brand stuff sitting on the table (minus the scissors as I’d already spirited those away to a <ahem> safe place) the wearable tape dispenser immediately caught his eye, and he sort of geeked out over it. It is a pretty nifty gadget. Tape close at hand, in pre-cut lengths that are just right for gift wrapping… what’s not to love? I tried it on and it’s surprisingly comfy. I like that you have the choice of wearing it over your hand or around your wrist. Hm. I guess if he lets me play with the dispenser, I might just let him use the scissors… for a few minutes… as long as he’s wrapping those presents.
What about you folks? Have you ever used Scotch brand scissors? or tried out their double-sided tape? Have any gift wrapping hints to share? (Trust me, I need all the help I can get!)
