On this Saturday morning, we are creatively Wrapping Up Christmas Dazzling Dollar Doilies. And this spoiler alert before heading to the end of this post, answers from yesterday for Letter Writing Christmas Movies Trivia Trio.
Wrapping Up Christmas Dazzling Dollar Doilies
When wrapping Christmas presents earlier this week for mailing it came in handy using a Multipack of Round Paper Doilies. The set I was using I recall purchasing within the last year from my local Dollar Tree.
The size of my package was a little larger than 5 x 7 and by combining different sizes of the paper doilies it made for a pretty present. Adding a bow, or using a red ribbon was a nice finishing touch, with optional name tag. The image I’m showing is from their website. While they are offering it to buy in bulk, I was able to get at the store buying just one pack – all for one dollar – letting me wrap 11 presents!
“Delicately elegant, yet fully disposable! Paper doilies are a pretty and practical way to line serving trays for a classic addition to parties, events, and celebrations. Each pack contains an assortment of 6-in., 8-in., 10-in., and 12-in. doilies. Plus, they have a scalloped edging with an intricate openwork design that perfectly showcases cookies, pastries, cakes, and other treats.”
