More Gift Wrap

I don't love to gift wrap.  I sort of tolerate's ok and I love pretty packages but I just don't like spending the time doing it.  Probably sort of weird since I'm a paper crafter but that's just the way it is...
My mother used to love to gift wrap...she would come up here each Christmas and we'd spend a day or two wrapping all the Christmas my kitchen table...we'd have paper, scissors, tape, ribbon all over the place.  We'd share cups of coffee or if we were doing it in the evening...well, we'd have wine! :)  I miss those days...and I sure miss my mother!


My daughter's shower is this Saturday and pretty soon we will be welcoming our new little baby girl into this world. I wrapped a few gifts with some white craft paper and then used my Cricut and my Tim Holtz rosette die to spruce up the boxes a bit. 
I used the Nursery Rhymes and the Storybook cartridges...these were fast and very easy!
Some of the paper is Martha Stewart and some is K&Company.  I made the flowers from a flower template off the DCWV blog.

And that's it for today!


  1. For someone who does not like to wrap you did a bee-utiful job on the wrapping. My pkg I mailed was wrapped in Pink Tissue & I used some of the yarn that item was made from to tie on it. Looking forward to seeing photos of the baby "Sprinkle" party.

  2. I agree you do a great job at wrapping for someone who doesn't like to do it. They turned out really nice.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment. I appreciate the time it took you to leave me a note and I will enjoy reading it. Happy Crafting!
