I inherited the ornaments that my dad put on the tree when I was a kid. There are no boxes for them and I've been trying to figure out a way to pack them without using rolls of bubble wrap. How do you pack yours?

I usually do newspapers and a smallish Rubbermaid bin (all the fragile ones are together in one bin) and say a prayer! If they were SUPER special ornaments like yours, I might throw in a layer of bubble wrap on top and bottom of the bin, too!
I wish it could be Christmas forever...
I have my Oma and Opa's ornaments they brought from Germany when they came...I finally broke down and bought the containers made for ornaments, they have separate compartments for each ornament....Now I wrap them in tissue paper, put them in the containers and feel better about things....Have a super day...God bless....

I use old tee shirts/towels/pillow cases to wrap my fragile ornaments and put them in a special box that I lined with foam. After I packed them in the box I wrap the box with additional old tee shirts (or something like that) and put that is a plastic bin marked fragile, and whatever might be in that bin.

I have one very old and very fragile ornament that mom and dad brought from Holland when the immigrated here. I keep that one in its own old cookie tin carefully wrapped in tissue.
My other fragile ones are packed in small plastic totes with lots of tissue paper.
my friend bought one of these for hers which I think I may get too...
