Buggy Gift...

My daughter was invited to a birthday party this weekend - her first since we moved here in October! So, we were well ahead of the game and got a present a few days in advance, but as usual for me, it sat ignored until 30 minutes before we needed to leave. All of a sudden I realized "We need to wrap this gift!!" Julia and I headed up to the craft room and pulled out my wonderful white wrapping paper from SU! and started flipping through my sets thinking "What would be good for a little boy?" As I mentioned earlier, I have ALL the bug sets, and I knew this was it!

I grabbed the Green Galore, Taken with Teal and Brilliant Blue ink pads, and Julia and I each took turns stamping bugs on the paper. Then, while she took that down to her daddy so they could wrap, I quickly made up this card. I had the patterned paper on my desk from another project (I covered an address book from Michael's dollar area) which fit perfectly. Just stamped the worm and a quick greeting, cut the mat, tied the ribbon and adhered the greeting with dimensionals! Whew...and I still had time to get my daughter into her costume and face semi-painted before we left! Got love color-coordination!! :-) And I must say, our hand-stamped wrapping paper is ALWAYS a big hit no matter where we are.



  1. That turned out very good. I have to say I almost always hand stamp our gift paper too!! I love how we can make the card to match!!!

  2. ADORABLE! I love quick and easy cards and I'm sure the gift and card were a hit!


I love reading your comments, thanks for leaving me some love!
