Easy Gift Wrap

Hello all! Today I'm up at the Precocious Paper blog to share a project using Tessa's holiday flowers on gift wrap. I don't know about you, but when it comes to wrapping all of those holiday gifts I am always looking for a crafty (but easy) ways to wrap them:) I think these flowers are a great solution! They totally doll up some of the simplest packaging... here I made a simple gift tag that can be added to a bag or package and a tri-fold gift card holder. Both only took minutes and I actually used up some scraps making them (you can't beat that!).

Here are a few "in process" shots that will show you how easy the gift card holder can be to make...
 Cut paper to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" and score at the 2" and 5 1/2" mark
Fold and add adhesive along edges to make pocket. Finish off with a strip of patterned paper and adhere flower. Use a Removable Glue Dots® to secure flap.
That's all I have to share this week... hopefully over the weekend I'll get some time to tackle my December Daily album and make a few projects using that darling Piggy Tales December kit, oh! and received a white elephant gift (thanks Angie!) that I want to artsy up & share. Hope you have a great and restful weekend!
