A couple of weeks ago wrote about these these little packets, since then I have had several requests for the ‘recipe’. Well there is probably a whole bunch of videos on the internet on how to make these but rather than trawl thru and post a link, I decided to make a video myself but in the video I used a Christmas theme.
I rarely wrap Christmas presents these days, preferring to use a decorated bag with fistfuls of tissue paper! In the days before I made cards, I would find myself running out of gift tags (usually on Christmas Eve when the shops had all closed!) so in the last few days I have been making some tags ready for December.

Today is my dear husband’s birthday, he is so very supportive of me and all I want to do and puts up with a lot missed meals, extra dog walking duties and a houseful of happy stampers when he gets home from a long day. His main hobby is wildlife photography and so I chose to use the Wetlands Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up! for his birthday card, this is a great set and perfect for the guys in our lives.

Those of you who have been following my blog regularly will know I love punch art. The Girl Scout cookie season has just come to an end and it reminded me of a project I did for last years’ cookie season.

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 🙂
