Note to self: Don't ever buy silver wrapping paper again! My family thought I was insane for trying to use hot glue to seal these packages . . . They were right! I made the mistake of buying this silver wrapping paper and I hated how the Scotch tape strips showed. I tried three different kinds of tape, a satin, a matte, and another one labeled "Gift Wrap Tape" but none of them worked all that well . . .
Second note to self: Do not attempt to use the glue gun right after getting a manicure! The hot glue was a bust anyway - there were thin strands of glue that looked like spun sugar flying all over the place and sticking to everything . . . not to mention the glops on the table and the burns . . .
Third note to self: I can't think of a third one but there ought to be another one, don't you think . . . ?
