Christmas giftwrap: House and Leisure

I was recently asked by House and Leisure to share some "Christmas type" Gift wrapping with them. I came up with some holly-berry goodness - here's how:
Things you will need:
  1. A box
  2. Metallic paper various colours (I got these from the Crazy Store)
  3. Sticky Tape or glue dots
  4. Chocolate balls - preferably red. (I got mine from Woolworths)
  5. Green paper
  6. Scissors
  7. A black pen
  8. String

Step one: wrap your box in the metallic paper - I like putting gifts in boxes because they are way easier and neater to wrap than oddly shaped gifts.
Step Two: Use a contrasting metallic paper to make a broad band around the gift.
Step Three: Draw some holly leaves on your green paper. These are easy to draw if you imagine drawing an inside out cloud. You can use various shades of green to make it interesting if you would like.
Step Four: Cut out your holly leaves and write on the back of them as you would a Christmas gift tag.Photobucket
Step Five: Attach the holly leaves to your gift using glue dots or sticky tape doubled back on itself. Attach some rough string around the gift to create a new texture.
Step Six: Attach your red chocolate balls onto your gift to make the holly berries - added bonus for the receiver as an extra little something sweet!Photobucket

Et voila Christmas Gift-wrap ala Holly Berries!
give with love x

Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave
it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go
back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

I tend not to comment, but I browsed a bunch of remarks here "Christmas giftwrap: House and Leisure".
I actually do have a few questions for you if it's allright. Could it be simply me or does it look like like a few of these comments come across like they are coming from brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting on additional online sites, I'd like to keep up with you.
Would you post a list of the complete urls of all your social networking
sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
