TSQ and some gift wrapping

This week I have some simple projects for you - easy ways to create decoratively wrapped gifts.  I have used the same image on each of these projects - Flower bud by Paperbag Studios.  All of these gifts were wrapped in very plain brown paper.

This first project uses hessian, plain old kitchen twine, some scrap paper (which I stamped on), kraft cardstock and walnut stain distress ink.

The second project uses black archival ink, a circle punch, and the black/white twine is from The Twinery.

My final project involves a little bit of ribbon and stamping directly to the wrapping paper.  Take care not to over-ink your stamp, and also take care when lining up your wrapping paper atop your gift!

Thanks for stopping by :)

NOTE: These projects were created for The Stamping Queen DT.

Beautiful projects Fiona!
So much inspiration.
I just recently bought some hessian and was just wondering what to create with it!
Love how you used a circle punch for the flower.
The last project is very soft and feminine.

Wow these are great, I never get the gift wrapping done... and it's sad b/c I've obviously got all the tools to do so...
