Instead of buying a bunch of wrapping paper, this year I decided to invest in a bolt of craft paper-- A ginormous bolt that will literally last a lifetime. I kept it simple and used stamps, fun tags, twine and pompom yarn to keep it interesting.
I usually dread wrapping presents, but this is kinda fun!

The more simple the stamp design, the better. Also, use an ink pad that has staying power-- I used StazOn, VersaMagic and ColorBox. Note: ColorBox is more "juicy" & thick than other inkpads. It gives a less uniform look, which I like... but it also takes longer to dry.
Tag & Embellish it!
I used tags that are available for free download from these sites:
1- love vs. design; 2- emily mcdowell for poppytalk; 3- sweet muffin suite; 4- hello lucky for how about orange; 5 & 7 - kelli murray; 6&8- ack! lost the link!
