Note to self: "Tape" it easy

Today is the last day of school for my boys. In a panic, here is what I am doing before they are home for vacation: sorting, wrapping, tagging, and hiding.

And I'm on my last roll of scotch tape.

I have plenty of glue sticks, though. Think that will work?

I've resorted to rolled up duct tape, tucked behind... Good luck! &:o)

Packing tape! Got any packing tape?

I wish I lived close because actually this year I STOCKED UP and have a TON of scotch tape - that's been hidden from my lovely children.

Can't wrap anything yet - hubby has half their Christmas gifts with him in Memphis and he'll be coming home Saturday with the haul. Yes, the man likes to shop. Ugh.

(I posted my stealth wrapping techniques today. Desperate times requre desperate measures...)

I can tell you from experience that glue sticks do indeed work. However, they make it much easier for sneaky children to open, peak, and reclose the paper.

And, no, I'm not telling you how I know that.

Same thing happened to me. That's why God invented the dollar store.

Been there done that and the answer is errr
How about electrical tape tucked behind?

Bia, I went into TAPE mode yesterday too...gotta have tons...must get more.
But, I went to the store and forgot.
I was way more interested in buying egg nog ice cream.

You could always wrap the presents in allumminum foil no tape needed.
I learned that one from Martha!

Pate probably won't hold, do you have any superglue?
