:Gift Wrap LOVE:

4.22.2009

I L-O-V-E presents! Especially gift-wrapping them! Here's one thing I like to do to my gifts: make SASHES! They're really easy and if you can't make a frou-frou bow, make a SASH! :)

For Talon's sash I used:
-Kraft paper
-Scrapbook paper
-Glue
I measured and then cut kraft paper to go around the box. I also used a scalloped edged paper trimmer (by Cutter Bee) to add a cute touch to the kraft paper. I then glued long strips of green scrapbook paper (an inch wide) to the edges of the scalloped kraft paper. I set it to dry a few minutes and then Voila!



For this step you may hand write or do what I like to do: use STICKERS :)
I found some really cute glittery ones from Target by Making Memories.

Hi there! Photography and art featured on this blog, unless where noted, came from my camera and were made or styled by my hands.
