This time of year we are wrapping gifts in preparation for the Big Day. I gave up wrapping in paper several years ago…. the shapes were too weird to wrap neatly or the parcels looked too lumpy and unappetising!. I started to use gift bags and tissue paper, a much quicker and easier (and neater!) solution.
Gift bags and tissue can be expensive so I buy plain bags from the craft stores and plain tissue from the dollar store ( 40 sheets for $1) Then I get out my inks and stamp sets and decorate to my hearts’ content.
I have a number of hostess gifts this year so this is the bag/tissue combination I have been working on today…..
The stamp set is Joyful Christmas and I used Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green and Crushed Curry inks. Now I have some lovely, elegant gifts to take with me.
I hope this gives you an idea for your future gift wrapping……..
Happy Stamping ~ Cindy 🙂
PS I just realised this is my 50th post…….. lets celebrate with your ‘liking’ it and while you are doing that……. just go ahead and ‘follow’ my blog…. then you know when I get to my 100th post!!! 🙂
