yes, I just showed you how I used this twine for my advent calendar. But, I also used the same spool for the last 3 years of advent calendars, plus birthday gifts, cookie bags, teacher gifts, ... pretty much every gift I ever have to wrap. It looks great with colored paper, kraft paper, doubled up, single ... and it lasts forever !!!!! So for under $20 per spool, I declare it my most favorite material for wrapping. Give it a try and have fun wrapping !
