I only had to wrap half the boxes this week, which has helped incredibly. Mum and Boyo came to the rescue, and did a few with me Monday night. My co-wrappers did not, however, consent to photographs of their wrapping in progress so you will just have to take my word for it! Plus there were the ones we did on Christmas Day.
So now I have a stack of boxes on my dining table. I'll have to find somewhere else to put them I guess, seeing as it's a few weeks before I will drop them off yet. Last year's deadline was 25 October, so if you've been contemplating doing a shoebox or two, you still have time to head out this weekend and get your skipping rope, flannel (facecloth), pencils, teddy bear and more! The best kind of therapy for those of us who are gift-givers!
Now here's an original problem for you. How do you get an A5 writing book into a narrow little women's shoe box?!
This way? No, maybe that way! Ah-ha. Slide it down the side, and curve. Hold. Bang that lid on quick! Now get a rubber band around it before it pops off again!
