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

Little post office type shops usually. Or those shops that have mops and buckets and random things outside?

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.

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

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

Wheelybug Mon 26-Nov-07 17:20:27

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

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

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

andiemisletoe Tue 27-Nov-07 07:24:23

ikea or matalan both have good ones

biglips Tue 27-Nov-07 07:29:54

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

saltireflyingatHampden Tue 27-Nov-07 08:01:36

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

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