Quick & Simple... Gift Wrap

Hello, I'm here today to share a few GCD Studios projects! Can you believe that it is nearly August? Time is just flying by in the Robinson house with a vacation, weddings, neighborhood parties and birthdays. Since it seems like I've been gifting a lot lately, I'm going to share a wrapping technique that utilizes your scrapbooking stash. Its quick and a great way to make gift giving a little more manageable for the pocketbook.
1) Start with a coordinating piece of 12x12 patterned paper and an inspiration card from one of Melody Ross' collections.
2) Cut paper to fit size of gift.
3) Score paper at width of object. Make sure that this section is centered
4) Fold at score marks.
5) Fold down four corners.
6) Fold up around gift like a pouch and staple at top.
7) Embellish...

And here is another wrap that I made for a couple of photo CDs that I made for a friend...

That's it... easy & effective! Take care.

Supplies: Patterned Paper (Fun House & Soul Food collection), Inspiration Cards (Soul Food collection), Embellishment butterfly & clips (Soul Food collection), twine (Divine Twine), ribbon (Michaels Stores)
