Wrapped Up!

Hello! We are kicking of another week of awesome inspiration here on the blog with a great project from Jane Tyrrell…

I really like making my own gift wrap, as I can make matching gift tags too..  it makes gifts so much more personal.

Visible Image stamps are perfect to use for this!

I always use ordinary cheap brown paper which I buy by the roll. I measured out a piece to fit and used the star and swirl from the Universal set of stamps.

I used Distress Oxides as my inks, I found this is an improvement on ordinary Distress inks as they don’t soak through the paper.

and stamped a pattern across the paper.

I love how well these stamp with the D’ Oxides. It gives an almost pastel appearance to the paper.

I then used a piece of inky/infusions mop up card to cut a tag, added some stencilling to it and then added Edie’s name using the Alphabetical set.

I also used the square shape as this gives a great border to the letters.

I used red embossing powder.

and I used all capital letters and made these little plaques to stick on.

and here is the parcel all tied up with a pretty ribbon bow.

Here’s a close up of the tag

I hope I might have inspired you to make your own gift wrap? Recipient’s absolutely love how personal it is. I make some of my own Christmas gift wrap too, if time allows.

Thanks as always for your kind visits, and comments you take the time to leave me.

Back soon.
Bye for now,
