DIY: Wrapping Paper & Ribbon Ornaments

Got a lot of wrapping paper and a little booze? Press pause on your frenzied holiday prep for a relaxing round of crafting and cocktails. If you're like me, you always buy too many rolls of wrapping paper and end up with pieces that aren't big enough to wrap a gift but too small to throw away. Use those extras to create fun, fabulous baubles for your tree! And if you need a last-minute gift, just pluck one of these babies off the tree. It's already wrapped!
