Special Touches with Gift Wrapping

I always like to add that extra something special to my gift wrapping for every person I give a gift to. I guess it is my way of showing that person how special they are to me.

So for this challenge I knew exactly what I wanted to do in creating my own wrapping paper:


I love the background stamps at The Rubber CafĂ© because they are so interesting in and of themselves. . especially this I-986 Roaring 20’s Placard!


Simply stamp repeatedly to make a seamless background. Then using the Spellbinders™ Grand Calibur simply cut the #2 fancy tag from S5-031 Fancy Tags Three and you've got yourself a tag.


I also made a small ornament embellishment using shrinking dinks and our I-980 Swirled Ornament with Hanging Ribbon stamp. I simply topped it off with some glossy accents and that was it!  So simple but yet very elegant.

I hope I’ve inspired you to make your wrapping a little bit more interesting. Would love to see what you come up with.

Supplies used:

Stamps:  I-986 Roaring 20’s Placard,  I-980 Swirled Ornament with Hanging Ribbon stamp
Paper: Brown Grocery Bag, DCWV Elegant Stack
Ink: Ranger Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Dies: Spellbinders™ Grand Calibur, S5-031 Fancy Tags Three #2
Glue: TRC Scrap Happy Glue, glue gun
Accessories: Making Memories Velvet Pleated Ribbon, Making Memories Floral Mesh Ribbon, Vintage button, Want2Scrap Baby Bling Creme

Happy stamping!
