Gift Wrap With Printables and Stamping

creative gift wrap

This year, I wanted to keep the gift wrap simple and elegant.  I decided on Dollar Tree craft paper, and white boxes with embellishments in red, white, silver and black.  I spent the majority of the time on the tags, combining digital printables with stamping, embossing and other scrapbooking techniques.  It had been awhile since I embossed, cut, punched, glued with all of my digital design, so I got really into being with my supplies!

For this tag, I stamped the M and boarder with white pigment ink onto a red circle, then embossed with white embossing powder and a heat gun.  It is tied with a piece of white yarn, and the package is finished with adhesive pears and wide, shear white ribbon.

The red tag below is an alteration of Martha Stewart’s free printable monogram gift tags I shared at Printable Decor.  I downloaded the file, then made some changes in Photoshop.  The Joy embellishment is a Tim Holtz fragment i glued over the word on scrapbook paper.  I finished it will a thin black and white checked ribbon.

It might be a little painful when the kids tear into their gifts.  I will try to remain calm and let them open as they wish.  The fun was in the making!
