Gift Packaging

Paper Snip Gift Packaging

Sometimes I come across unusually shaped presents and – wow – aren't they a challenge to wrap?!

I usually wind up scrunching the paper at one end and sticking heaps of tape over it. Then I quickly turn it upside down before the whole thing pops open. Lol. Know what I mean?

So anyway, I was giving the beautiful Stampin' Up! paper snips as a gift recently and was perplexed at the unusual shape.

(Yes, I was ignoring superstitions about giving scissors as a gift because they really are the BEST scissors and cut right to the teeny tiny tip).

With its triangular shape I didn't want a replay of any scrunchy wrapping paper incidents. So I grabbed a sheet of the beautiful paper from the 2010-2012 In Color Paper Stack (p130 in the new Idea Book & Catalogue) and set to work on some customised gift packaging.

Gift packaging embellished with Vintage Brad, Tiny Tags stamp set and Jewelry Tag punch


With a snip here and a snip there, and some discreetly placed Sticky Strip, we were done!

Love that Blushing Bride colour. Just the right shade of 'not-quite-pink'.

Thanks for stopping by today. If you can spare a minute feel free to leave me some comment love and let me know you were here.  xx

Happy stamping,
