Day #7 ~ Pocket Present

And the Christmas fun continues...Today I have a gift wrapping idea that I just couldn't pass up trying.  I have a HUGE roll of kraft packing paper, so I use it as gift wrap all the time {because as you know...I love kraft & it goes with everything}.  Anyway, this nifty package has a pocket that I have stuffed two little tags inside...HOW COOL IS THAT???  It's super easy too ~ just fold the wrapping paper in the middle and then wrap your gift.  I tied a fabric ribbon just below the pocket & then added some coordinating tags using some fun die cut images.

The stocking die cut is from Memory Box and the Snowflake die cut is from W Plus 9 Designs.  I used a Cuttlebug embossing folders to add the swirl texture to the stocking and the snowflake texture on the white layer behind the kraft snowflake.  

My project today was "Pin-spired" by this Pin
{just click on the photo for the link}

Today my "Pin-spired" friend is Daisy Sparks!   Make sure you hop on over to her blog and see what she came up with for her "Pin-spired" project!

Don't forget ~ Weekly Blog Candy!  Each Friday {as in TONIGHT} I will be drawing a random comment from my blog to give away some cool blog candy.  You may leave as many comments as you'd like each week.  Then at the end of my "Pin-Spired" Celebration, I'll have more prizes to share with more lucky winners!  

Blog Candy Rules:  Comments that I deem unkind or look like spam will be deleted.  Winners will be posted on my blog each Saturday and must send me an email with your contact information.  Deadline for final blog candy drawing will be midnight (ET) on December 21, 2012.  If you fail to provide contact information to me by December 31, 2012, prizes will be forfeited.

See you tomorrow for more "Pin-spired" fun.

OK, first I love that you wrap in kraft paper....I actually save all the packing paper that they stuff in the box when companies ship things to me. I iron it, stamp on it and it makes the prettiest packages! But a pocket? Now that takes it to a whole new level! Love this idea!!!
