I love celebrating Valentines Day! It is one of my favorite holidays. I have some great people in my life and I enjoy having an extra reason to take some time to show them I care. I chose to use this Valentine wrap because it is was so easy to make and you can put a variety of gifts inside the wrap. I decided to go with gum because my children are always searching through my purse for my hidden stash! Some other ideas are a gift card, favorite treats, lip balm, a favorite nail polish. Really anything that is a small enough to fit inside. I plan on giving a lot of these away during the month of February. For this project I used card stock, double sided tape for the gum, a hole punch, and a small ribbon.
To make a wrap you will need a 8 1/2 x 11 paper. I used some elements from Boutique Cute Dolls. SHe has some amazing kits in her store Oscraps. http://www.oscraps.com/shop/home.php?cat=586 I put the project together in my favorite digital program Heritage Collector Storybook. This is an example of my original copy printed. I chose to create two designs. I also printed it with a colorful print on the back side so that when you open it up there is some color. As you can see above with the gum I placed inside my wrap. You could print this on your home printer. However the quality at a local print shop comes out brighter and more vivid. I usually print mine from a local printer.
