Emergency Gift Wrapping Ideas

With all of the presents bought and the shops closed, it’s armed with a glass of your favourite tipple that it is time to tackle the task of aiding Father Christmas in the gift wrapping, if you then get that sinking feeling that you have no wrapping paper fear not, armed with some run  of the mill printer or kraft paper you can muster up some amazing creations…
