Kate @ A Creative Cookie

Hi there Imprintalish readers! I'm Kate and I blog over at A Creative Cookie. I am thrilled to be here today!

A little bit about me... I love photography and graphic design! Strawberry ice cream is my favorite, and I love the colors yellow and mint!

Today I will be sharing a few ideas for wrapping gifts. If you are like me, you have lots of gifts to wrap for cousins, nephews, nieces, grandparents, parents... the list goes on and on!
Here are three fun ways to make your gift wrapping special!

1. Stamping
step 1. wrap your box in solid-colored wrapping paper, or just keep the box plain.
step 2. for several colors (instead of ink pads), try coloring your stamp with washable marker (and wash off easily in between uses)!
step 3. Stamp away!


2. Washi it!
step 1. use washi tape and create a criss-cross, striped, or diagonal pattern (find washi tape here)
step 2. stick on a bow!

Have you heard of Washi tape? I am fascinated by it - it has become so popular!

3. Decorate the bag (as Cookie Monster or not!)
step 1. cut out two paper circle, one black half-circle, and one brown circle.
step 2. using a black marker, color in chocolate chips on the brown circle and pupils in the eyes
step 3. glue the pieces on!
You can find the full tutorial for the Cookie Monster Bag here.


Thanks again for having me, Lish! It has been so fun!
I would love it if you'd come on over and say hi or visit me on Facebook!
xo, Kate

These are great ideas Kate!! I love me some great wrappin' ideas :) I've never used Washi tape before, but I see it everywhere!! I just may have to try it!!! Thanks so much for sharing with us today!
