No Time Like the Presents

So, there is No Time Like the Presents... before you put away your wrapping supplies, pull out some of your favorites (or some of that paper from a present you unwrapped that was just too pretty to recycle) and make a card featuring wrapping paper or gift tags.

Here's what we made:

Stephanie says, "Lauren not only wrapped my gifts in this adorable Yeti wrapping paper ... she also gave me a few sheets she Xyron'd to cardstock, so I could detail cut out all of these adorable picture frames to make a Yeti Family Christmas homage ... since the background of the wrapping paper was red, I used one of my *solid* red/blue Gel Press prints for my card base.  A few sticker sentiments and a pearl for little girl yeti's flower in her hair finish the design."

Lauren says, "My friend Barb sent me a very pretty present wrapped in beautiful matte giftwrap which had these snow-dusted evergreens on it, and the minute I saw it, I started figuring out how to get the paper off without tearing or wrinkling it! There was a pretty big crease at the left edge, which I decided to cover with collagey bits. These include a serendipitous scrap from a French language children's book which says "The Christmas Tree"; some beautifully patina-ed sheet music and some of the amazing 1957 Christmas Seals my mom found at a thrift shop. The red glitter mat is another piece of careful unwrapping."

And to start our 10th year with a bang, there will be a fun little prize for one lucky participant ... the oh-so-adorable Say What Christmas Critters Stamp Set from Lawn Fawn with the set of coordinating dies.
