DIY Christmas Wrap

DIY Christmas Wrap

It is nearly Christmas and what could be more timely… and beautiful than Saria Simmonett of Little Princess Cards DIY Christmas Wrap.  Yes, Sarita has been creating again and has so kindly shared this project with us.  Her elegant style makes this wrap extra special.  Who wouldn’t love getting a gift wrapped like this?

The paper wrap was created using the Penny Black Yuletide Wishes stamp set and stamping all the greetings in this set onto a lightweight white paper using a permanent black ink like Versafine Onyx Black.

With the paper complete, it was on to the making of the poinsettia. This exquisite poinsettia was made using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Poinsettia Die Set. Sarita cleverly first inked a sheet of white card stock using Tim Holtz Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade distress inks. After the ink was dry, the poinsettia was die-cut. She cut a few extra petals and added them to create more fullness and increase the size.

After the gift was wrapped with the newly created paper, the poinsettia was adhered to the package.  Holly berry sprigs, from the Holly Berry Penny Black die, were cut from shiny silver card stock and added, along with a matching button and a silver bow in the center.  She added the ‘A Gift for You” sentiment and Viola…. a gorgeous Christmas package ready to be given to your favorite recipient.

P.S. If you don’t have the Holly Berries die, a good substitute is the Jolly Holly die also by Penny Black. Sarita also uses a silver cord for the bow.  I found the DMC silver thread works well too.  You can see these choices in the supply list below.
