    cool, unfortunately I am all wrapped and doubt there will be more this year.

    I love wrapping my gifts with kraft wrapping paper and using these labels and ribbon buckles will raise the wrapping to a whole other level. Lucky for me that I haven’t started wrapping my local gifts yet. Now I just need to dig out the dies and get started.

  46. Diana Garcia says:

    I used brown paper and twine or ribbon to wrap packages this year. I took small manilla tags and embellished with tissue tape and the contrast was great. Some super ideas today with the wrapping ideas you shared. My theory is when I’m bored during the year, I’ll get an early start on some of these ideas. I took a class yesterday in our little town of Chico, CA, and Jodie (Chico Scrapbook) used your technique ideas to make tags. It was a fun day, and as always, I learned something new. Thanks for the daily inspirations.
