This bundle boasts 50 new sets including this amazing Gift Wrap Set. Everything you need to wrap the perfect little gift!

Simple Gift Wrap Cut It
Card stock


Begin by cutting out your boxes and bows using coordinating cardstock. Fold the box on the score lines and bring up together. The top and bottom fold similarly, however the top has an addition flap for extra support as shown:

This set has two bow styles. A typical "tied" bow, and then two styles of floral like bows. To make the paper tied bow, cut out and fold up together, linking the two cut lines as shown:
Once the bow is pressed together, wrap the small strip around the center and glue.

To make the flower bow, simply cut out and insert a brad into one petal, and continue around bringing up each petal and inserting it into the brad. When all the petals are inserted, poke brad through the center of the bow and bend the legs so that it stays. There is an optional additional size for each style, if you want to make a double layer.

Lastly combine all the elements to make a package quite possibly prettier than the gift ;)

Thursday's Tip: Love Your State Print

A few weeks back, I saw an adorable print for sale, similar to this. But I decided instead of buying it, it would be just as easy to make in exactly the colors I wanted. Check out my You Tube How-To, to see how to make your own "Love Your State" Print!


Favorite LD Paper (I used the Mad Scientist Chevron Print)
Every State Cut IT
Cuppa Tea SVG

Note: In the video I forgot to mention the short cut I used to change the Hue of the state image. You will want to use short cut "Control + U" to change the color of the image.
