Present day doesn't allow such luxuries. Kids love nothing more than to rip open gifts, especially when told not to touch them for awhile. What's a girl to do? Sew her presents, of course! So far, not one gift has been broken into.
I started by having the girls make a huge mess with paint on craft paper.
Sewing a perfect circle is next to impossible, as seen on the left Christmas tree.
My sister, Molly, gets the shaft every year, since her birthday is 3 days before Christmas. Not only is she getting the dreaded "this is your birthday and Christmas gift all in one," so is the wrapping. It's a birthday/Christmas creation!
The middle one is supposed to be a peppermint candy...um, yeah, not so much...but it was fun trying!
This fun project works well on the small gifts, but the big ones will be a little difficult. Those may just get a single bow right before we do the gift opening.
