So, there is No Time Like the Presents ... before you put away your wrapping supplies, pull out some of your favorites and make a card featuring wrapping paper or gift tags.
Here's what we made:
Stephanie says, "Let's just say my *wrapping* usually leans toward gift bags due to my less than stellar gift wrapping skills ... but when Lauren wraps a gift, it's an artistic masterpiece. When my Christmas gift from her arrived in the mail, my first thought was - open it carefully so you can re-use that awesome wrapping paper for your first Jingle Belles card ... and so I did. Aren't those colors amazing. All I had to add were a trip of chipboard stickers and a trio of sequins."
Lauren says, "Apparently there is a "gift wrapping gene" and I get mine from my mother and her sister, lol! This year the latter used a very cool set of coordinating glittery blue and white tissue paper (from Costco-- who knew?) which I smoothed out and attached to plain white cardstock I'd run through my Xyron machine. I used the current Retro Sketch for my layout, but made my card a standard sized rectangle in hopes of occasionally avoiding the post office's premium on square envelopes in 2015!" (ps: for the record, I still have some of the paper in which I wrapped Stephanie's presents; so there's every chance you might just be seeing that again next week, lol!)
And now it's time for ♥YOU♥ to see what lovely little bits of giftwrap or tags are left under your own tree, in the wrapping box, or maybe even in the recycling bag?! Go grab the prettiest ones and make your first holiday card of 2015, then meet us back here! Link up by 6pm (EST) on Wednesday, January 14th. Keyword for galleries or Flickr is JB:15:01.
