Yes I know you think I am crazy but I almost enjoy gift wrapping more than buying the presents 🙂  This year I of course took inspiration from pinterest from http://lifeonvirginiastreet.com and http://bilanciadesigns.com/design/invitations-place-cards/.  I just ordered my holiday cards on etsy from https://www.etsy.com/shop/PinchOfSpice and she is going to print them with the same chalkboard theme I have going on my wrapping paper.  Cannot believe I got this all done before Thanksgiving!  Below are the links to buy the items you need to do any of the 4 wraps.  Email or message me if you have questions.  Happy wrapping!

1.  Marvy gift tag punch- Overstock has it for a little over $20 and free shipping.  You will use this forever so it is worth the money.  http://www.overstock.com/Crafts-Sewing/Marvy-Uchida-Clever-Lever-Xtra-Giga-Craft-Merchandise-Tag-Punch/4073156/product.html. 

2.  Large black roll of paper-I got mine on amazon but it is from Pacon paper company:  http://www.amazon.com/Pacon-57305-Fadeless-Paper-Black/dp/B00006IDYA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1416589422&sr=8-1&keywords=large+black+roll+of+paper again about $20 I have had the same roll for a number of years for wrapping.

3.  Twine in a can by Luster Leaf-this is the best twine and stays good because it comes in this dispenser. You get 325 feet for about $7 shipped with Amazon prime.  http://www.amazon.com/Luster-Leaf-Rapiclip-Natural-Dispenser/dp/B001GQTZ4E/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1416589513&sr=8-2&keywords=twine+in+a+can

4.  Factory Direct Rusty Metal Stars:  I paint mine silver or other colors but they are nice rusty too.  http://factorydirectcraft.com/catalog/products/1302_2533_2103-6283-bulk_rusty_tin_primitive_stars.html.  Then I use my drill or a punch to put holes at top.
