birthday wrap inspiration


Hi everyone and welcome to day 4 of the Papertrey Ink November release countdown. Today is a group post day and we are all sharing projects to inspire you when wrapping up birthday gifts for a friend or loved one.

All of the new stamp sets and products that I am sharing today will be available to purchase on November 15th, 10PM ET, at Papertrey Ink.


First up is this card and tag set that I created with the new For You set and coordinating dies. I used the "happy" For You Tag die in kraft cardstock that I layered on a Basic Cut Tag die. I cut the "happy" word from white cardstock and layered it onto the kraft tag die cut. I stamped the companion sentiments below the window opening in the tags with Fresh Snow and True Black inks and then added a few wooden starts sprinkled onto each tag to finish them off.


I added one tag to a white card base that I cut with the new Noted: Scalloped A2 Vertical dies. The other one is added to a gift bag that I made with an envelope. (If you haven't seen this done before, take a look at this quick tutorial that I found: ) I added some Spring Moss patterned paper to the front and back of the bag as well as some Spring Moss twill ribbon for the handles.


I created another fun birthday gift bag with the new Wrap it Up dies. I made a bag out of an envelope again and then added the stamped and die cut present to the front of the bag and then just a plain piece of the stamped Berry Sorbet to the back of the bag. I used Berry Sorbet twill ribbon for the handles.


There are some great details on this bag: the great die cut ribbon, cute kraft tag ties to the bag with some twine, and the fun wooden stars sprinkled onto the gift.

You can see more new products being debuted today for the November release over at Nichole's blog. From there you can link up to other members of the design team who have new things to share with you today too!

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I will be back very soon with more to share!
