As soon as I saw the amount of paper used on the giant boxes I received I decided to use it for Christmas. Once the kids were sleeping I set up everything. I needed enough paper for 12 gifts.

I used a bag from H&M to wrap the last 2 gifts. I also ended up using masking tape instead of the clear tape. I’m waiting to see the family’s reaction when they see the gifts wrapped in this brown paper.
