Been out today with our parents group and ordered all our father christmas toys but now we have the job of wrapping them all.

Where can we get really cheap wrapping paper???

Wilks has some but tbh it falls to bits after wrapping, if you so much as look at it or put the gifts in a bag etc

You need to handle them carefully if you use it

Brown paper or newspaper might be better.

don't know as I've taken the wrapper off but I managed to wrap 80 lucky dip presents with one roll

furball how many metres are the morrisons ones?

BHS have 8m rolls for £1.50 at the moment. Thickness is fine. Kids patterns (santa etc) and the usual gold/silver snowflake type stuff.

I bought 2 x rolls for £1 in morrisons and it is ample thickness.

How much is it in Ikea?? Is the ASDA stuff any good or does it rip when you try to wrap stuff up?

Ikea

Brown paper, a set of stamps from a craft shop (or potatoes) and some paint/ink/whatever. Then get the children to work/play on it.

Brown paper, pages with full-page pics from Sunday supplements, or aluminium foil! Done well, they all look fab.

The 16p Asda one is only 2m long, it doesn't last long. I've got 2 rolls,each about 15/20 metres for £1.99 each at Wilkinsons

you have to be careful buying really cheap wrapping paper as they rip easily whilst wrapping the pressies up.

ikea or matalan both have good ones

last year I got realy nice paper (but thin)for school fair at 16p a roll in tesco, it was their value range.

MrsGuyOfGisbourne Mon 26-Nov-07 17:40:01

Am on my way too right now to ASDA - deffo agree just gets ripped off, the cheaper the better!!!!!

I am going to get the 16p paper, only because it gets ripped off and binned anyway

SGK- thats what I saw - I was shock. Probably terrible quality but doesn't really matter for this !

smeeinachristmastreeinnit Mon 26-Nov-07 17:20:08

crikey! i hate to think how thin the 16p a roll stuff is!!! grin

By some Brown packing paper and wrap presents in it tied with red yarn. It actually looks really good

Asda do some for 16p a roll, think it is 2 metres, quite a nice design on it and in our Asda comes in red or silver.

sugar34plum Mon 26-Nov-07 17:18:30

sugar34plum Mon 26-Nov-07 17:18:11
