Last Minute Wrapping

Ok, I admit it. I'm spending today doing some last minute wrapping of gifts. How about you?

Well, just in case you are sitting around your computer procrasinating even further than I am, here's a surprisingly quick way to dress up your gift bags (because let's face it, those are HEAVEN for last minute wrapping!). Cut a tag from kraft paper and stamp one of the beautiful trees from Lockhart Stamp Company on it, like this Snowy Tree With Birds.

This is just three colored pencils - green, red and white! Colored pencils on kraft paper are fantastic - if you haven't tried it you absolutely must!

Add some curvy snow drifts and stamp the "Celebrate The Season" sentiment. Ink the edges with a very light blue chalk ink for instant softness and dimension, then simply tie it on your gift bag with a little baker's twine for an on-trend, festive look.

The amazing Lockhart image makes it look like you spent all day prepping your tag - and your recipient will be wow'd! Only you and I will know how quick and easy it really was - and I won't tell if you don't!

OK - now go wrap up those gifts! Be well.  ~ Jenn
