Mexi-Style with Anjelica (@la_anjel now also on craftythrifter)
Because there’s always that one person on your shopping list who is anything but subtle.  They like big beautiful things and they’re not afraid to own up to it.  That’s probably me on everyone else’s shopping list come to think of it… But for this third installment of the 12 Gift Wrapping Days of Christmas, I’ve decided bold and colorful is perfect for adding a little sass to any holiday gift.  I hope you like the idea!

You should have a good idea of what length of a braided ribbon you will need for your gift.  Although I will say in this case it is better to have more than what you might need.
