Gift wrap...and ya don't stop!


Earlier I was on the phone with my mum and she was asking me to draw more of my little girls..who I call the "chicas". And since I was in gift wrapping mode, I decided to color the chicas that I had printed out while testing my scanner and printer.
So, I whipped out my colored pencils. Ohh, and Prismacolor's pencils go on like butter!

Then I thought to myself, how cool would it be to add a chica to Allison's stationery gift...which only had a sash.
Then, I remembered my Xyron machine...and I turned her into a stickable-chica!

Fresh from the Xyron bakery:

Adhere chica to sash:

The result. Tah-daaah:

Then here are the gifts together:


  1. Oo-La-La! I luv your chica girls!
    They are 2 cute! Such creativity is meant to be shared in your Etsy Shoppe. I will be your first customer, can't wait!

  2. I love those chica girls! I think you should sell them! Your illustrations are so adorable! I think you can extend to cards, gift tags & stickers and more.. ;) *idea*

  3. Aloha Piggy: Thanks so much for visiting my little blog! I'm very dee-lighted that you like my chicas and that they would be good enough for Etsy! I'm brainstorming for more ideas. I'm always open to ideas, comments, and all that jazz! Hopefully I'll whip up something soon! :D

  4. the chica is sooooo cute!! and the gifts look great together!

  5. Suee: I'm happy you like Chica! I'll keep making her for my gifts then. Thanks for your comment! :)


So happy you paid me a visit. Mahalo!
Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.
