Making Your Gift Wrap Fun!

Whether it's for Christmas, Birthdays, or another special occasion; pretty gift wrap is always a treat.  Have you considered digging into your crafting supplies to tackle your wrapping? I am joining you today with a simple idea for adding something special to your gift wrapping.

This was easy to make with the help of the Puppy Love Cut Files available from the Silhouette Store and Lori Whitlock.  The cut file I used was called: Orange Dog Puppy Love.  I used several additional supplies in addition to the cut file - I punched snowflakes from the Swiss Dots Petite Prints and also tore the sheet to make a little snowy hill.  I added sequins and jewels from Doodlebug to mimic snow.  Fancy Frills was my last non-cutfile touch using it as a border piece up top! Now let's get back to the cutfile!

Because this puppy had a shape that reminded of the the little Scotty dog from Lady and the Tramp, I decided I'd got that direction with him and run with the winter theme.  I cut him in Petite Prints to get the coloring just right.

I also traced his body and created a little sweater for him.   I thought that added to his festive feel! For a finishing touch I added a little red bow to his tail and then added a Chunky Brad for his tag.

Once I had cut out all the pieces I only needed about 10 minutes to assemble this bag.  Quick, easy, and sure to make the receiver smile!
