‘s Fab Holiday Finds Week 2 theme is WHITE.

I have a lot of white, that is for sure. I bought a lot of white Japanese paper last last week, along with the other purchases I got for the personalized Christmas gift tags that I did.

Frugal Christmas practices that I plan to do, this is a part of it.

I used the white Japanese paper to wrap my gifts for my students:

Looks nice doesn’t it? I think its just perfect for my gift tags’ colors. Click here to see how the gifts look like.

The cost for a pack of these white Japanese paper is PhP16.50 = $0.34 (PhP48 = $1)

I got myself 4 packages worth PhP66.00 = $1.37.

Not bad considering I still have three unopened packages. To prevent the gft from being seen through the paper, I used dark blue Japanese paper to cover the gift first. Those blue ones have been unused for several years now ๐Ÿ˜‰

That’s a nice idea! I’m using craft paper to wrap our gifts this year. I bought a 40-meter roll for only 115 pesos i think. Sa hirap ng buhay ngayon , dapat magtipid ๐Ÿ˜€

Great Post Julie,

What a smart idea, and so inexpensive. Thanks.

I wanted to drop you a comment because I am trying to raise money for the Autism Action Partnership ( this Christmas and I thought that you might be able to help me. We are selling a Velvet Suit Santa Figurine and a sterling silver Four-Heart Pendant. They really are beautiful pieces and each sale benefits the Autism Action Partnership. I was thinking that you might know some moms who would be interested in these gifts/contributions. You can see the gifts online at

Merry Christmas and keep up the good posts,
