Butterfly Die

Friends and butterflies

Good morning, Stephanie here with a quick and easy way to wrap a gift.

Sometimes the gift wrapping can be just as important as the gift you give.  Giving a gift card can be so impersonal, so why not dress up the packaging so the recipient has something nice to open.

Using a small gift bag from the local craft store, I decorated it with pattern paper and a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, allowing "friends" to show.  After inserting the gift card, I tied the bag together with ribbon.  Then I used the Butterfly die on a large manilla tag.  I cut the butterfly from cardstock and the same pattern paper I placed on the gift bag.  I ran this layer through my Cuttlebug, then inked the embossed section.  After placing the cardstock butterfly on the tag, I used foam adhesive to adhere the second layer, then added some pearls down it's center.

Stamping "to and from" allows a little more personalization of the gift bag.

Enjoy.
