Botanical Silhouettes

I love coordinating tags, paper and embellishments  for gift giving.
Sometimes gifts can be difficult to wrap in a traditional way - an odd size or shape means that you have to think 'outside the box' to make it work. 
I created a trio of gift wraps for my sister-in-law's birthday gifts, 
using Botanical Silhouettes and Distressed Stripes stamps, along with a simple white bag and card stock and turquoise tissue paper and card stock.

After wrapping the main gift with tissue paper, I used some extra paper to make a 'pom pom' flower to act as a topper. A green ribbon and stamped tag finishes (Tremendous Tags die cut) the design.

A white bag was stamped with images from Botanical Silhouettes using Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist, Summer Sunrise, Canyon Clay and Simply Chartreuse. A small butterfly (Butterfly Dreams)  was stamped in Harvest Gold, Summer Sunrise and Canyon Clay. A strip of Hawaiian Shores was die cut with the Large Scallop Border Die, folded over the top of the white bag and then tied with a small piece of green Baker's Twine.

The sentiment (Botanical Silhouettes) was stamped 
with Hawaiian Shores and Canyon Clay.

The Pillow Box die was cut from white card stock and then stamped with a variety of colours using Distressed Stripes. A green ribbon was added.

Thanks for visiting today.
