12 Days of Christmas Ideas # 12
Wrap it up Stampin' Up! style! Why go out and buy expensive wrapping paper when you can use the brown paper that comes in your Stampin' Up shipment. Then of course add some pretty ribbons and a tag and you are good to go!
I scooped up some Old Olive striped grosgrain ribbon from the Clearance Rack for $1.99 last month and I am using that and the Wide Real Red grosgrain ribbon here. I also remembered that I had some fleece from another project (yet to be made - something for next year) in an off white color that goes really well with the red ribbon.
You can lay the brown paper out flat and then iron to get out most of the wrinkles.
