Three birthday parties in two days which meant three presents and three gifs to wrap.
On present number three, I came to the realization that I really suck at this and looking at the finished job confirmed my opinion. Tape going any which where, underside of the wrapping paper showing here and there, no sense of symmetry even remotely achieved.
So I was going to make a poll with categories such as “Expert level”, “Moderate” “Half-ass (and proud of it)” but there appeared to be too many sub-categories.
Take mine: Awful – but I’m o.k. with it. I justify this as anyone who actually examines the gift wrap with a critical eye prior to opening the present ought not to be on the receiving end in the first place. What’s more, these presents were intended for young kids who I know spent perhaps a millisecond looking at the giftwrap before tearing it to shreds. AND- if someone did make a flippant remark, I was more than ready to say that my five year old is big enough to wrap the presents herself. (Seriously, the end result was really bad but I had no intention of unwrapping and staring over.)
Lastly I have to note none of the gifts was in the shape of a nice, neatly shaped standard box. Had that been the case, I may have had a better go at things.
