Christmas is quickly approaching and hopefully we will be done with all of our shopping and/or gift making in time for the holiday. But, have you ever finished your shopping at the last minute to sit down to wrap gifts only to discover that you are out of wrapping paper? No worries, it's easy to wrap beautiful gifts using your scrapbook paper. It's a chance to give a gift with unique one-of-a-kind gift wrapping, especially if you make your own bows, or stamp your gift tags.
Gift Box: To create a gift similar to this use a few sheets of matching scrapbook paper and cover the outside of a box. Next, craft a simple bow from strips of a coordinating sheet of paper, and add gift tags. For a little more interest, add a contrasting satin ribbon around the box.
Party Popper Box: Cut an empty paper towel roll down to a size that will fit your gift. Place your gift inside the roll, then wrap it in brightly colored tissue paper. Tie the ends with floss or string and cut the edges with decorative scissors. Next use your scrapbooking paper to wrap around the roll and finish with a ribbon. For a more festive feel I used a Martha Stewart edge punch on the ends.
I hope you are able to use some of these ideas. May you and your loved ones have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
PS: The digi-paper and tags will be available for FREE in the next issue of the SOC eSpire magazine!
