Neighbor Gift Idea


I needed a super cheap neighbor gift this year and I found it!
I picked up the wrapping paper in a 3 pack for $1 and a 3 pack of tape for $1. 
Add some scrapbook paper from my stash and you have a fun gift idea! 


The tag reads:

Since November you've been shopping, 
barely sleeping, hardly stopping. 
Now it's late you're in a scrape, out of paper, out of tape. 
Hope this wrap helps save the day! 
Have a Happy Holiday!  

Total cost? .66 a piece!! You can't beat that!


I have made this saying into a free printable for you, I hope that it works, I have never done this before!
To save the saying right click on the image and click "save image as".
This one will print at 4x6 


This one will print at 4x4

I had this pinned since last year sometime. I just wanted you to know that my neighbors will be getting this fun little gift this year. THANKS for the fun idea!

This is a great idea. If you wanted to do doubly good - spend a little more and buy the wrapping paper from the young neighbor selling wrapping paper for his school fundraiser. Love the poem. Way cute idea!

The mind is a great philosopher. And life is not a philosophy, life is a reality. And philosophy is an escape from reality; philosophy means thinking. Life is, there is no question of thought. You can simply jump into it. You can simply experience it. Visit my site for more information.Thank you.

I knew as soon as I saw this on Pinterest that wrapping paper would be my teacher gift this year. Thanks for the great idea and the cute poem!!

I did this for some coworkers this year. Kicked it up a notch by adding Christmas-themed scissors, pen, and decorative sticky notes along with tape. Put in a cellophane bag and tied to the gift wrap with pretty ribbons. It seemed to be a hit! Thanks!
