Hannahs Birthday Gift!

Yesterday was my friend Hannahs birthday. I posted the card i made for her in yesterdays post and today i want to show you how i wrapped her (crafty) birthday present!!

Stampin' Up! deliver all their crafty goodies in massive cardboard boxes with huge amounts of brown paper! Well it seems such a waste to just pop it into the recycling bin, so i have folded it all up and kept it safe to use it as wrapping paper! (This was originally Hannahs idea, so it seemed fitting that i would use this paper to wrap up her pressie!)

I started off with the brown paper and randomly stamped the 'All in a Flutter' butterfly stamp all over the brown paper using 'Melon Mambo' and 'Rich Razzleberry' ink. The gift tag is made from 'Crumb Cake' cardstock, i have stamped the 'All in a Flutter' butterfly on the front (again using 'Rich Razzleberry' ink) and i then placed some 'Basic Pearls' to create a 3D butterfly body! The 'Happy birthday wishes' sentiment is from the (sadly retiring) 'Fun and Fast Notes' stampset (inked in 'Melon Mambo').

 I punched a hole in the corner of the gift tag using my trusty 'Crop-a-dile' and then threaded the 'Melon Mambo' 'Grosgrain Ribbon' through the hole and wrapped up the present!! Hannah seamed very happy with her crafty gift, she is off out for a yummy meal tonight, so i hope she has a great night tonight and a fab weekend of celebrations!!
