I'm wrapping my packages in tissue paper of various wonderful Halloween-y colors.  I'm still crafting here!  I'm soooo close to being done.  I got some goodies in the mail and I picked up some more awesomeness for the package last week!  I have a few projects left to do, crafting like a mad-woman here!  And those will be worked on tomorrow afternoon and in the evenings this week so I can get them packaged up and ready to send!  Cheesy

No problem Cadet. Smiley I went and picked up a box from them tonight. Good thing too because they told me they were fixing to dump them.

Tissue paper and awesome Halloween ribbon! Joanns also has some cool Halloween stamps out now that could be used to spruce up the wrapping too.

As far as shipping goes I'm probably going to be cutting really close to the wire as I still have a couple of things I need to order and have to wait till the first to be able to do it. Hopefully though they'll get here pretty quick since I really REALLY don't want to have send out late.


I don't have a TV now but that's ok the shows in my mind are almost always better.

what is everyone else wrapping their stuff in? tissue paper? fabric? I didnt find ANY halloween wrapping paper  Undecided

I'm thinking about using some kind of thin paper and maybe decorate it somehow.

I wraped mine in black tissue paper, but for some weird reason I couldnt find ANY orange tissue paper anywhere! so i had to get orange napkins.....lol

I only had a few sheets of orange-ish tissue paper and no black. I ended up wrapping many of the packages in green and a couple other non-halloween colors.

So the wrapping isn't very festive - but the items inside are!!

Sorry I've been invisible, just insanely INSANELY busy!!!  Last year I wrapped mine in shiny red paper with skull ribbon.. lol!  I'm about to run and buy groceries to feed my teeming horde, so I'm hoping to find some sort of cool wrapping while I'm out...  whew!

I found a nice neutral shade of wrapping paper and will tie as much as possible up with Halloween-y ribbons.  Not as cute as I would have liked, but I figure it will do.  The items inside are plenty cute and Halloween-y!

i've been able to get a lot of stuff wrapped and packaged in halloween themed treat bags (you can get 12 ct. packages at the dollar store). they're a little smaller than a standard size lunch sack (which I have also resorted to using) but they're all different and really festive! i tried wrapping one bulky thing in tissue paper and when i turned the package back around i could see straight through to the design.. i might have to rethink that one..
