You sort of secretly LOVE the shopping itself.
It;s the un-bagging,hiding and then wrapping that causes the extra stress and boredom, right?
What if I shared a new concept of wrapping a present that could revolutionize HOW you present your presents and speed up your wrapping time?
Meet the Fobbie!
The award winning Fobbie is a durable, reusable, recyclable, gift wrap tag of heavyweight laminated cardboard. You cut 2 ribbons to go around your gift,then thread them through the patented Fobbie slot system, and cinch to your package giving you a professionally wrapped look. No fumbling to tie a knot and no smashed bows when stacking or mailing
We were sent the Holiday Wrap Pack to check out:
As you can see, it comes with 24 Fobbie Gift Tags (12 Vintage & 12 Floral "To/From"), 3 Rolls of Ribbon (each roll is 30 feet long and 1.5" Wide (includes 2-Red/Green—looks red or green when you move it and is super pretty!, and 1 Gold), and all of it is packed in a large Reusable Storage Bag!
As you can see, it is SO easy to wrap a package:
You cut your 2 ribbons for the length you need. I found that the formula that worked was to wrap around the package in the direction I wanted and add 5 inches. This gave me 2 -2 1/2 inches when it was wrapped around the Fobbie card, for a decorative tail. If you want a longer tail, like on the cookies above, then add more inches. The longest part of the wrapping was measuring and cutting the ribbons! After that it was just wrap, in and out of the Fobbie on each side, pull and cinch and DONE. EASY peasy!
As you can see the color changing ribbon is VERY cool! LOVE love love it, and am so glad you can order it by itself for when you run out! I love being able to use the Fobbies to wrap odd sized gifts- it is so much nicer than slapping a peel off label and bow on a bicycle. And you know they always fall off before Christmas morning!
You can also get the do-it-yourself kit and add pictures of the grandkids to put on presents for the grandparents, so they know who the gift is from, or you can add a special item or decoration, that goes along with the gift!
For the holidays the Fobbies are sold as a 6-pack ($8.49) a 12-pack ($14.99), or the above Holiday Wrap Pack for ($39.95). Kids love our Do-It-Yourself blank Fobbies they allow you to paint, collage or decorate as you like (5-pack $5.99). With our picture frame version you can add pictures of the kids, pets or artwork (4-pack $5.49). They also have all-occasion Fobbies, like birthdays, new baby, best wishes and congratulations, so you can use them year round!
We LOVE the Fobbies and will definitely keep using them! Check them out and you will too!
