Voting for our annual Holiday Wrapping Paper Contest has ended, but we’re keeping the outcome a secret until Dec. 23, when the winner will appear on the cover of Weekend with his or her design printed inside as a sheet of gift wrap.

But until then, we’re offering an early present: Our “adorable mentions” photo gallery has been updated to include the entries from the 12 finalists and comments about what caught the judges’ eye. Take a look at and see whether you agree.
