See this nicely wrapped gift?

I just wrapped this. I did not, however, have any clear tape (I've been out of it for... several months now... shut up, I'll get around to it eventually). I didn't want to use masking tape or something that would make my little gift look like shit, sooooo I somehow managed to wrap it using these:

I can't tell if this is ingenious or pathetic? *shrug*
