No Time Like the Presents

Filed in Uncategorized

The girls at Jingle Belles are back with a challenge for the new year – asking us to make a card featuring wrapping paper or gift tags.  Well hey, this one is perfect for me this year!  Short back story:  I am notoriously late with present wrapping, most often staying up late into the night at the last minute to get things done in time, and doing a half ass job of it.    Not this year!  I had a plan – turned it into a crafty project, and was done with days to spare!  Everything was wrapped in kraft paper, then I added beautiful ribbon, die cut greenery, tags, stamped with the Stampers Anonymous “Festive Overlay” stamp set,  and pretty metal embellishments from Idea-ology.  (Holiday Hacks abound!).  Once the festivities were over, all the bits and pieces were saved in a box, hopefully to be repurposed next year.  So that being said, this was probably the fastest card I have ever put together – I just recreated on of my presents; slapped it on a card and called it a day!
