Wrapping Paper

Today is another Belli Challenge day, and the challenge is WRAPPING PAPER. You can use wrapping paper on your card, or make your own wrapping paper, or..... You decide! Just make sure it has something to do with wrapping paper.

Remember that card I made yesterday? And how I said I had something to show you today that coordinated? WELL... Here it is....



I actually used the remainder of that 12x12 sheet to wrap a small gift in. Have you ever used DP as wrapping paper? It turns out so cute! And check out how fun the coordinating gift and card look together:

The gift (and card) is for one of my girlfriends. It's someone I don't normally exchange Christmas gifts with, but I saw something that I thought she'd like, so I bought it for her. I would tell you what it is, but she cruises through here sometimes so I don't want to blow the surprise! Anyhow, I hope she likes it!

You can see the links to all of the other Belli Challenge Girls in my sidebar (*finally* got everyone loaded! Woot!). Be sure to click over and take a look at what everyone made. I'm thinking this is going to be a fun challenge, in terms of creativity! If you play along, be sure to link your card back to Chrissy's blog. :o)

Also, before I go, remember those Holiday Pretzel Rings I made and posted a few days ago? I've gotten a few comments and emails stating that some of you are having a hard time finding the rings. Well! Check this out! My blogger friend Sue made the same thing with square pretzels (she calls them "waffle" pretzels, but at my store they are called "snaps" and are by Snyders) and plain M&M's!

AND, I changed my banner AGAIN. I went back to the old one this time, with new photos of the boys in it. I just wasn't feelin' any of those wintery/Christmas ones I made. Hmph.

Sarah ... I can't believe just how closly the stamps match the paper. Love it and you coordinate it so well! This is great!

(I understand about your banner ... I never changed mine b/c I just didn't feel the christmas spirit yet ... now that Christmas is 8 days away, it's kinda a mute point).

Are you enjoying your camera .... dh is giving me heck about wanting one .... tellin me "you don't need no 500+ camera". Duh, he doesnt need all those guns, ammo, and other crap he collects ... but it's still stomething he enjoys. I told him last night that I appreciated his support on something that I ENJOY (I was being sarcastic ... think he picked up on it, b/c an hour later he said he'd help me buy the camera I wanted sometime after Christmas).

Jackie said...

That set looks great together. I have stamped my own paperbut never thought to use 12x12 paper, great idea for small gifts.

Thanks for the tip on the pretzels, I can't find the rings either.

I use DP all the time to wrap things! Love it!!

And, thanks for the link to the square pretzels too. I hunted high and low - going to 4 different grocery stores to find the circle ones, to no avail. I was afraid another shape wouldn't work but aha! Good thing I'm going back to the store on Friday!

This makes the perfect coordinating gift and card. I love it. That ribbon is beautiful. I want me some. And yep here in Seattle there is nothing like a pretzel circle to be found so I will have to try the square ones. Oh you clever people.
