Wrapping Gifts for the Post

When every inch counts, and so does the finished product, you know fluffy bows aren't going to survive an overseas adventure. This year I used some decorative paper and fun masking tape to add a little pizazz to my packages. Then I stamped names on the gifts w/my rubber stamps. And because decorating the box is as fun as decorating the gifts inside, I added Rudolph and some holiday greetings to pass along a little cheer along the journey.
Bonus: We discovered that UPS is way faster and cheaper than DeutschePost/DHL for our last-minute shipping. We even have a tracking number that goes beyond Germany, phew!  Also handy was the fact that they came to our door to pick everything up, meaning no eternal lines at the post office.Yay!
