Aussie themed gift wrap

Standard

My husband is re-turning 21 tomorrow.  Seems like only yesterday he returned 21 last year!  I am excited to celebrate with him and our family but I’m also excited to have a reason to play with my NEW stamp set, Hoppy Birthday (D1597).  This is one of 5 sets of stamps released EXCLUSIVELY for Australia and New Zealand by Close To My Heart.  You can view all 5 sets by clicking here.

I have a small gift for him… something he really wants but it’s just the one gift.  I wanted to make it look a bit special so decided to make my own gift wrap with a matching card.  I used a sheet of good quality copy paper as my base and wrapped the present so I could see the crease lines.  This meant I could centre the feature stamps on the top of the package when it is wrapped.

I only coloured the one image on the top of the package so it really stands out.  I left the rest as outlines.

My card was super quick to make using strips of washi tape and a triple mount for the stamped image.  Another couple of stamps on the envelope and the gift looks fab.  Have some fun with this idea – it would work nicely on plain gift bags too.

  1. Looks great Shaunna, I never would have thought to use this set fro a grown up, but for someone who wants to relive their younger years it is ideal! It’s nice that we can celebrate our special birthdays, like 21, so many times 🙂 In a weeks and a half I will be 23, for the second time.
