Is anybody else starting to feel Christmassy? All I’ve done so far is eat, craft and be merry so I’m pretty happy on the count down to Christmas.
This leads me perfectly onto today’s project. This started a little backwards and has a strange story behind it. I’m sure you all know how supportive my partner is when it’s comes to crafting, not. Anyway he came to me for the second time requesting a special way of wrapping a gift for a friend. As he gave me a little more warming I was able to step back and have a little think of what to make.
I’ve been wanting to make my own wrapping paper for ages and actually thinking of screen printing it rather than stamping but hey I get to share this with you. So I started the a roll of ikea paper roll which is super cheap but feels great. Not only that but 100% recyclable which is alway preferable. I stamped the wreath from the Wishing You Well Stamp Set however felt there was a little too much space so I brought in the little snowflakes from the Beautiful Baubles Stamp Set. The longest part of the wrapping paper had to be the berries around the wreath. I did draw this on with a stampin write marker but when you’ve done the first five you get into the fact it doesn’t need to be perfect!
Of cause now we have the wrapping paper you need a matching tag. Which is where we bring in today’s actual project. Using the wrapping paper as inspiration I used all the same stamping elements and colours just jazzed it up with some Rhinestone. Use see that I personalised the tag in one example however I also used just the ‘Season Greetings’ for the more generic gift. The video is available below:
I’ve been reflecting over my schedule with the Christmas period and I’ve made the decision for my post 23/12/18 to be my final post of 2018 with more posts being again 01/01/19. This has been a easy decision to make however I’ve been posting regularly since June and a little holiday is needed. I’ll still be around on social media and available for enquiries via all normal contact methods.
See you around!
