One thing that I really hate about Christmas
is putting all the ornaments away.
Unlike the tree trimming part there is no party
with family and food.
There's just me and the cat and a lot of tissue paper.
I wrap the paper around the ornaments
and put them away in boxes.
She jumps into the boxes and tears apart the tissue paper.
But this year, thanks to Pinterest
I did something different.
First I glued a bunch of red cups
to the bottom of a plastic tote.
Then I filled them up with ornaments,
putting a delicate one in each
followed by a couple of soft ones to cushion it.
I also stuck in some of the pre-torn
tissue paper (thanks kitty).
I made a second layer using cardboard
as the base.
It was ridiculously simple and hassle free.
