gifts and tags galore!

 i've told some of you about my wrapping venture this year! i wanted the brown bag look. my friend Rachel suggested i go to the hardware store and buy a roll of the stuff you cover your floors with during new construction to protect them... and i did just that! It's quite bulky but if you use packing tape to adhere, works like a charm. Then i stamped the name of the recipient on each pkg w/ my su! alpha stamps that had a layer of dust on them.(thanks to digi scrappin'!) Thanks Pinterest for the idea! ;) btw, true friends don't tell other true friends about's an addiction waiting to happen! teehehe that pretty ribbon, yup, bought it on the clearance rack last yr after the holidays. didn't know what i would use it for, but sure came in handy now!
 also, i think i have wrapping paper for like 5 yrs fo sho, w/ that baby...
 two tags die w/ the big shot, rolled these out in a jiffy! all i had to do was embellish. i used dsp scraps from my scrap basket and then the ornament punch and star punch. the two way glue pen helped me in adding some dazzling diamonds to each piece. on the star and ornament. They are so pretty in person, hard to capture that via film..

a mini glue dot and some hemp twine gave me the loop on top of my ornament to 'hang'
paper: real red, jolly dsp, very vanilla, river rock, old olive
ink: old olive
tools: ornament, star, scallop punches, big shot, two tags die
accessories: old olive grosgrain ribbon, dazzling diamonds, 2 way glue pen, mini glue dots, stampin dimensionals
