Christmas Eve, Friday 24th - preparations

For the last 5 years or so, I've been putting all of our family presents in Christmas Bags.  When there were more families visiting, I used one type of ribbon for each family unit and then used labels or markers to put the names on.  More recently, the packages are tied with a different ribbon for each person.  Sometimes the present is for two people to share the package has a ribbon on it for each person sharing.  So much less mess to clean up and less waste of paper.  I usually buy the Christmas fabric after Christmas when it is selling for $2-$4 per yard.
