Hello dear friends,
Ishani here! How often do you use your dies and stamps for other than cards? I am always looking for ways to make most of my supplies and today I am here with some amazing ideas for stretching your dies and using them for wrapping your gifts for the upcoming Holidays using the various dies from the #merakicraftober release . I will be using Christmas flower layering dies, Take a bow again dies and Carol Ornament layering dies and decorating my plain brown paper gifts wrappings.
The first example is using a pretty bow from your Take a bow again dies.
I cut out beige and a gold sparkle cardstock from a die from the Take a bow again die set. I am suing a gold washi tape to wrap the gift in, you could also cut the gold cardstock in strips for the same look. I first adhered the beige bow and over it for some dimension the golden bow.
For my next gift, I decorated the brown paper with the snow flake die cut. So I chose the Carol Ornament layering dies and die cut it from white cardstock and trimmed off the circle, leaving just the snowflakes.
Then I adhered the de cut snowflakes on the brown paper with glue (after I had wrapped the gift). I also cut out one whole ornament and a backing with the beige cardstock to use it as a tag. And used a white twine to add the tag on the gift.
I die cut red and green cardstock with Christmas flower layering dies and for the pollen I took a gold sparkle cardstock and adhered the layers with glue to make a pretty Poinsettia flower.
I made a tag and stamped the pretty Poinsettia floral arrangement from the Christmas Miracle stamp set and stamped with Red ink. I wrapped the gift in brown paper and used a gold ribbon over which I adhered my flower and tucked the tag.
I hope you are inspired to use your dies for adding some creative twist to your Holiday gifts. Check out other beautiful stamps and dies at Crafty Meraki store!
