For today’s blog hop, I created a stamped wrapping paper to use as decorative packing for a personalized monogram gift. Handmade packaging is a great way to add an extra special and personal touch to your presents.

I started by stamping floral images from Engraved Flower Stamp Set with black onto a plain kraft packaging paper and I used it to wrap my gift.

I added a decorative lace ribbon, a monogram that was cut with the Mega Alphabet K die out of gold glitter cardstock, a fresh greenery and that’s it!
