Christmas gift and tag

Part of the fun with giving gifts is to wrap them prettily. At least it is if you aren't in a hurry, and don't have too many gifts. Which usually during Christmas is never the case... But this time I managed to take some time to wrap this gift up prettily and even make a handmade tag for it. The Stampin' Up White Christmas stamp set is great to make quick and easy tags and cards. This tag was so quick to make. First I used the tag topper punch to make the tag. I then stamped the trees, the cute polar bear and the bird using Early Espresso onto Crumb Cake card and used my white gel pen to draw some snow on the trees and the ground, and some snowflakes in the air. I love the cute polar bear, and I don't care that polar bears are not supposed to be in the woods, I just love the cute scene, and will keep on using it no matter how unrealistic. 

I wrapped the present using Stampin' Up paper and added some red ribbon and a star. To finish off in style, I added a big bow from Stampin' Up Pretty Presents Designer Bows, which are ready die cut pieces you can use to assemble a bow.
