DIY//GLITTER GIFT-WRAP

It's crunch time for those of you who still have gifts to wrap!  But don't worry, I'm here today to help you give your gifts in style.  

I used simple kraft shipping paper that I got from the dollar store.

I opted for a simple vertical design.
 Keep an empty paper bag handy so that you can pour the glitter and shake the excess off without making a big mess.  Plus, this is a great way to "catch" left over glitter to re-use.
 This is a trick that I picked up, spray hairspray over the glitter to help set the top layers and minimize the chance of being rubbed off.
 And you're done!  So simple and fun.  My only advice is that it's best to do this the night before, or at least a few hours before, giving your gift.  That way you know your glue has dried and the glitter has set. 

Hope this helps!  Happy Holidays!
