I RAN OUT OF TAPE WRAPPING PRESENTS!!! HELP!!!!

I have like 3-4 more things to wrap and I bought one of those "hand dispenser tape thingys(The kind that fits sorta like a braclet) And I ran out! I KNEW I would lose the one refill that came with it!!!
Any ideas what I can use for "tape"?
Gum? uhhhh...Can I lick a candy cane and use the candy as an adhesive?

  • when I was growing up, Santa never wraped the gifts? my BIL told me tonight it was the same way at his house? so really, they don't have to all be wrapped?

    seeing how slow my 2.5 year old was earlier tonight at BIL/SIL's house opening his presents, I may be sorry that I wrapped his LOL

    do you have any packaging (sp?) tape around? you could cut it into smaller pieces and use that?

  • Saran wrap. It'll be a pain to get off, but it'll just be that much more fun. Wrap it in paper, then cover that with saran wrap.
