Uh oh. I knew there was going to be a problem when the big tape dispenser fell to the ground last week and all of a sudden, there was sand everywhere (from the dispenser). So without a dispenser, we had to resort to the little tape dispensers. The ones where you have to hold and tear the tape off the little roll but remembering that you must also hold the wrapping paper firm on the present, all at the same time.
After years of having a tape dispenser (like the one above), this was not proving to be an easy task. So to make life simpler, I used packing tape that had a dispenser attached. So the presents are now wrapped with heavy duty packing tape. It will be a fun morning on Christmas. Enough to give me a smile when I hear the ‘OMG’, another one taped to seal out water.
Yikes, I hope my family doesn’t read this blog post until December 26th. They don’t know I have 4 more rolls of packing tape hidden away somewhere.
