Are you interested in joining the fun and having a chance to win some great prizes? Each Monday 10am mst, I’ll have a link-up party on my blog.  This is your chance to showcase what you’ve made from Ruby Star Wrapping.  The link-up party will close on Saturday 10pm mst (one entry per person and you can’t link the same one twice). I’ll draw a winner on Sunday and send the winner an email. Then another party will start the following Monday all over again.   But keep those links, because Sew, Mama, Sew will also have a link up party at the end of Wrap-along on their site so you’ll have twice the chance of winning something fun!

    I’m a tissue paper nut! I love to use it when my wrapping paper is too thin, and inside boxes. I do always feel bad about it, though. I know it all gets recycled at my house, but I don’t know what happens at the homes of the other people I send gifts to. I would LOVE this book!

  • Reply Kay October 31, 2012 at 8:31 am

    For me it is clear sellotape, whatever else I use be it tissue paper, wrapping paper, ribbon etc the only thing that is a constant is clear sellotape.

  • Reply Sara October 31, 2012 at 9:05 am

    I’m just a paper and tape kind of girl, but I think this year I will have scalloped printed tags for embellishment too.

    The last gift I gave was a book I wrapped in fabric for one of my quilting friends. I took the Quilter’s Travel Companion and wrapped it in a fat quarter of fabric.
