7th Day of Christmas: The Grinch Gift Tag

If anyone were to ask me what my all time favorite Christmas movie, cartoon, & all of the above, was, I would immediately say the classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas (gift tag here!). I watch it every season (sometimes throughout the year), at least 4 times a week. Maybe even multiple times in one day. I think it's partly because it's the first cartoon that's taped on my very own vintage mixed VHS tape my parents created when I was two years old. If you have any question as to how old this tape is, take a look at the torn stickers placed on the VHS here. The quality is horrible, but the nostalgia is so worth it!

What sort of nostalgic (& maybe cheesy) traditions do you look forward to during Christmas? 

The Grinch holds such a nostalgic feel for me, that I tried to revolve the gift wrapping around this sentimental & quirky idea with the little elements found here: quirky wrapping paper, gray yarn (found at any Walmart, Joann Fabrics, other "big" stores, too) with White Felt Balls (2cm), Gold ornament (from my tree, but can be found at any "big store", Paper Pine Tree (created by me in the 4th grade (aww)). Some tutorials here!), & last, but not least, the gift tag!
