Designer Take: Tessa’s Gift Wrap

Our Gift Wrap challenge is in full swing for one more week! To wrap a few gift cards that we gifted yesterday, I pulled out my All is Bright kit and a few other simple materials:

First, I used white lunch sacks folded in half to enclose the gift cards. Next, I used red, minty green and gold eyelash yarn to wrap the package and tie a bow. Then, I embellished mini clothespins with the red glitter ribbon from the kit. I used extra strong glue to adhere the ribbon, then trimmed the excess with sharp scissors.

I cut rectangles from the gold glitter cardstock and layered cards cut from patterned paper in the kit as background pieces for my tags. I didn’t glue anything together in case my gift recipients wanted to re-use any of the items. A simple shipping tag is how I addressed the packages.

Lastly, I took a berry from a floral pick, curled the wire stem, and tucked it in the clothespin, too.
