special present wrapping : on the cheap!


It's so easy to make presents look special without costing the earth. I found these lovely velvet poinsettias in a cheap shop, about 5 to a stem, plus two sets of berries, that look equally good, for £1. I then just used coordinating cheap wrapping paper, and gold raffia (which I also found in a cheap shop 49p for 25 metres)
I'm thrilled with how they look under my tree, just a shame I have to give them out to other people!!
