InKing Royalty Blog Hop Wrap it Up

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s December Blog Hop! We have a fun Blog Hop theme today—Wrap it Up! The hop is filled with projects that are perfect for this time of year—everything from gift-packaging ideas to bundling up to stay warm. We are excited to share our creations with you today. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

Merry Little Christmas by Stampin' Up!

As the year comes to a close, sadly, so does the Holiday Catalog. The Merry Little Christmas Suite found in that catalog is one of my favorite collections of all time. So much so, the colors of my blog have been influenced by it. With that in mind, I had to share some of the fun embellishments in the suite.

Merry Little Christmas Suite

With so many great options, it is simple to create a beautiful package perfect for Christmas giving. Here, I used kraft mailing paper to wrap a gift and embellished it with things like the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper. Mini Ornaments and Green Sprigs add character to the 7/8” Striped Ribbon bow and  tag made with Merry Little Labels complete the wrapping.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Robbye Hamilton at Miss Hammie’s Crafts. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

    I feel the same way about this DSP paper and suite! Love all of it. Adding just a topper to the kraft paper box is a gorgeous addition. I wouldn’t want to open this box, and would consider it the present. Thank you for sharing!

    Such a beautiful presentation for a gift, Shawn! The recipient won’t even care what’s inside – they’ll be afraid to tear into the gift. What a great showcase of these items! Thanks for hopping along with us today!
