  1. Use your peppermint and gift balloons to create a balloon backdrop for your wrapping bar. Tape clusters of balloons to the back of your table using regular clear tape, or tie clusters of balloons to balloon weights and set them on the table, or on the floor behind the table.
  2. For the printable gift tags, print them on cardstock and cut out along the indicated lines. Punch a hole in each tag and tie with a piece of baker’s twine or ribbon.
