Thanks to my friends at Creativebug I learned some of the best gift wrapping tips from the Holiday Wrapping Techniques class by Lia Griffith. Lia always has such creative ideas so I was excited to take this class and learn some new tips to help me become a gift wrapping pro.

I also loved Lia’s tip to wrap the gift with extra layers like intricate cut bands.  I used my Cricut to make several of these belly bands to wrap around the presents and love how extra special it made them feel.
