For today’s hop I would like to share with you a gift-wrapping project. Making your own packaging is really fun and easy, and it gives a wonderful personal touch to any gift. I used a small background stamp called Snowing to create my own stamped wrapping paper. I stamped it using black ink onto white paper. Then I used a paper string to tie my wrapped gift.

season's greetings


Next I used stamps and dies from the Beautiful Day Set to decorate my present. I stamped the images using shades of green and black ink as I wanted to keep everything in monochromatic colours.

season's greetings


To finish my project I added two tags I created using the Stitched Labels 1 Dies from Pretty Pink Posh. I cut them out of white and black cardstock and stamped a sentiment from the Pine Tree Stamp Set.

season's greetings


That’s it for me, your next stop on the hop is Heather Hoffman!

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop!
Aga
