Pretty Wrapping Paper

What do you do when you have to go to a little girl's birthday party with no pretty wrapping paper for the gift? Looking through the wrapping paper, they are all either Christmas or Boy wrapping paper -- after all, you only have boys in the house......

Guess ya just gotta make your own, you are a crafter!!

Start with a clean piece of large paper.
I had a roll of printing paper from my dad who used to work in a printing company.
Stamp, stamp, stamp . . .

Stamp more colors, add more stamps . . .

OMG! Not bad, ya! The matching birthday card will be no problem, no problem at all!! Shucks, I have the whole set of Princess stamps that I had for a past project I should have used. Oh well, so.... what do you think??!! No need to buy girlie wrapping paper. All I have to do is create the paper as I go. Now all the minds of ticking . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Friendship's Fragrant Garden -

Mom needed some cards to sell at the craft fair so I quickly created a couple of these, my favorite design. There is just something about these daisies.
