I found these neat unfinished paper mache gifts with silver "bows" already attached at Hobby Lobby and they happened to be on sale at the time. I inked and then covered them with this cute Christmas paper from Cloud 9 Design and then embossed some green cardstock strips for the "ribbon". I Modge Podged everything for durability.
To complete the gifts, I cut two tags from TBBM and added a flourish and sentiment from Home Accents and Home Decor (Cricut). I attached the tags to the gifts and put them on my coffee table as a centerpiece.
Just want to mention that I draw inspiration from others, and you are welcome to use any of my original ideas for your personal use as well... I just ask that you give credit where credit is due and that you don't copy or re-create any of the artwork posted on here for submissions to contests, publications or for profit. Please provide a link to this blog for any projects/ideas inspired by my personal designs. THANKS!!! :)
I'm a stay at home mom (aka "Household CEO") and have two happy, energetic and beautiful children and the best husband in the world! I have been paper crafting for ten years and I try to craft whenever possible, focusing on invitations and party decorations for my kids' (and my friends' kids'!) birthdays. Thanks for taking the time to stop by and visit!
