Brown Paper Packages Video!

Hello! Today I am sharing how to take ordinary lunch sacks and make them into extraordinary gift packaging with elements from my new FabulousHoliday Labels stamp set and the coordinating Fabulous Labels die set!  This is custom gift wrap for just pennies, and always looks so festive, classic and classy! Who doesn’t get excited about a brown paper package tied up with string?  Pattern possibilities are endless with the two step elements.  And of course you can use these same pattern making tips and stamps on your mats and single layer cards. Please enjoy!  
The diamond pattern looks pre-printed, so professional looking I can't stand it!! And, wish you could see this dotted pattern in person!  It's so fun that some of the little dots have stripes etc, instead of just solid dots. I love it!!  Be sure to watch to the end as I also show using labels on jars and bottles.  Happy stamping!

Tape adhesive and adhesive foam
Grid line acrylic blocks, lined craft mat or lined paper for guide
Lunch sacks or brown paper, ribbon or twine is optional

I forgot to say if your gift is too big for a lunch sack, you can use a roll of brown paper for your stamping and then wrap a box of any size, or break down a large grocery bag and trim to wrap your box if you don't have a roll.  Have fun, get creative!
