Not Your Usual Ribbons

What do you usually do with your gift tags - those small and cute cards and tags placed on top of your presents? I have to admit I keep those cards every year and I try to include them in my layouts - after all they're mementos to keep and cherish!

Here's what I did: I created a slit/pocket under the small presents so I can insert the gift cards. To give the presents a 3D look, I used foam squares to adhere them. And since the overall theme of this layout is all about gifts, I thought of "wrapping small presents" too with small pieces of paper and tying the presents with ribbons! I thought of using the paper line's name as my title too.

I used the Wrapped Wishes Collection, Ribbon Elements and Clearly Petite Alpha and Image Stamps to create this layout.

The ribbons are so versatile, I was able to cut them into strips - quilled, folded and curled them up! They're like "paper" so it wasn't hard to adhere. The second and last present from the left have "quilled" ribbons on them! While the third and the sixth presents have curled ribbons.

other materials used: Bazzill cardstock, buttons, BasicGrey alpha stickers, Uniball Signo pen, and brads
