Like Buttah Baby!!

OK, I LOVE wrapping Christmas presents. I am really old-school about it. I REFUSE to use gift bags at Christmas, if I can help it. I love the smell of the tape (I have issues, I know), picking out the paper for each gift, finishing it off with the perfect ribbon (the crown jewel of the gift) and standing back and admiring my handiwork. Just when I thought it couldn't get any better, Scotch (the makers of the tape, not the booze) came out with this gift wrap cutter.

I bought it, and had my reservations.

Then.... I sat down at the table, chose the gift, picked my paper and after measuring the right amount, I held my breath as I apprehensively positioned the cutter.

I pushed my hand forward and all of a sudden the heavens opened, light shone down and the angels sang. The cutter just glided, (yes I said glided) through the paper.

Like Buttuh!!!!!!!!

I was faklempt!!! A tear rolled down my cheek. It was a beautiful thing.

So long scissors!!!!! Good Bye, torn paper!!! Arrivederci, unsightly, jagged edges!!! I have found my gift wrap mecca!!

At last I am whole!

If you can't already guess, I highly recommend this product.

Happy Wrapping!

I am a bit of a gift wrap snob around Christmas! Maybe next year I should try to earn a few extra bucks by offering my services!

So I have to tell you that Richard is the same way, he spends tons of time tying intricate bows, and I am always so impressed at how beautiful all of his gifts are. So this year our new product is the gift wrap tape dispenser that attaches to your hand to keep both hands free-it's pretty neat, maybe you should invest. You should offer your services next year, I think that there is a market for it (I thought about it, but I don't think that I'm good enough). Hope that you have a wonderful Christmas!
