This year I am loving this gold star gift wrap from Target. I made sure to grab two rolls of in the beginning of December as I knew it be popular. Last year I did a lot of gifting with kraft boxes so I wanted to do something different this year.
Once I had my package all wrapped I grabbed a bunch of supplies and began layering. I began with a large white paper doily. I then added a piece of music paper I cut in the shape of a banner flag. On top of the banner flag I added a coffee filter that I crunched together to look like the top of a prize ribbon.
Using two different sized cupcake liners I then added those to the top and finished it off with a bow stamp.
TIP >>>>>> I use my hot glue gun for EVERYTHING including wrapping my gift.
Once my gift was all wrapped I used my typewriter to type a Christmas note to add to the top of my package.
To create my tag that I used for typing, I simply used a white tag and sectioned it off diagonally with washi tape. Using Behr paint I painted one size of the tag leaving the other side white. Let your tag try before typing , If you don’t have a typewriter try using stamps to create the same look !
I think there will be lots of coffee filter toppers being made this Christmas.
