Give Your Presents Presence

A great way to use all the bits & bots left from those Scrapbooking projects is for Wrap Art.  A term I totally made up while spending days wrapping gifts.  It’s like doing a mini scrapbook layout onto a gift box or bag.   I really do like all the gifts under the tree to co-ordinate, still each one was unique.

Of course the main wrap paper was aqua. All the bits, tags and stick-ons were aqua, white and red.  I bought the fabulous layered Christmas stickers at for just pennies.  Other items like mini candy canes, tiny stars, mini bears and the like were purchased at the Dollar Store.  Lesson learned, don’t be a craft snob, you’ll be surprised what you can find  at the discount stores.

I made good use of my Big Shot Die Cutter for the tags and snowflakes. Now I can’t wait for next year.  Here’s how it all turned out under the tree. Very Vintage! Personalizing your Christmas wrap will give your presents presence.
