This is already my second post today - busy me, hehe :)
It's my turn to bring some inspiration to the Sweet Stamp Shop Blog today. They just have so many adorable and versatile images - I am IN LOVE:
This time I thought about all the possibilities of decorating gift wrappings.
I mean - Pillow Boxes are easy to make and they're so beautiful. I think they are my favorite. (Especially since I have my silhouette - I can make them nearly any size I want. easy peasy!
You can stamp in them, add twine, cut our images and adhere them, you can add glitter, cut out a window (Note to self: I should do this!)...
For my Pillow Boy I used the cool hippo from "too hip" with the moustache from that same set:
My second idea for a gift wrapping campe up when a friend sent me some canvas-baggies. I never knew it was so easy to stamp on canvas. I just have to get more of those bags, they can be used for ANYTHING! (They're not only good for gift wrappings, you can keep small stuff in there - like cubes for a game.)
This one is pretty small - for a very tiny gift maybe.
My third (and for now last) idea is a vellum- bag or paper bag. Yes - I am a fan of vellum. And again: I cut that out with my Silhouette. Stamping on vellum is a littly trocky, because the stamp might slide around because the ink is not absorbed by the paper that quick. Just make sure to stamp straight :)
That skunk from "stinky Skunk" is beyond adorable - isn't he? and funny.
Friday Mashup: Black& white + 1/Word Bubble
There are so many more possibilities to make gift wrappings:
- gift card holders
- decorated "classic" wrappings
- Jars with a Tag
What else can you think of?
You can find all the details on my ideas, links to the stamp sets and a photo of the entire collection HERE.
Thanks so much for stoppin' by!
