Vintage Holiday Gift Wrap

Hello All!

Tina here to share with you a quick and simple way to jazz up your holiday gifts. There are so many ways to make your gifts look over the top using Spellbinders dies. Today’s gift is wrapped in a vintage style using some basic die templates. This same design could be recreated using any colour scheme to create a more feminine style, more masculine, bright, etc. So many possibilities! I really love the distressed look of this colour scheme. Let me show you just what I did…

I just love how this turned out. Makes me wish all of my gifts this holiday were just this size. However, this could be used on larger gifts as well… just make it into a gift tag. Endless possibilities!
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a wonderful Holiday Season.

Until Next Time…
Happy Creating!
