All wrapped up in PaperArtsy

Hello all, and thank you so much for stopping by.  I'm delighted to be over on the PaperArtsy blog again today, with one of my guest designer contributions.  If you're aiming for a crafty Christmas, you might want to check this one out.  I usually wrap my presents in brown paper and zhuzh them up, but with these I've gone a step further... yup, they're Perrella Presents!


It's all fairly simple, so it's something you could build into your Christmas preparations to add that special handmade touch.  I hope you'll have time to hop over and check it out.  

See you again soon - in fact in just a few hours here at Words and Pictures!

A lovely idea. I've just popped over from PA to say Thank You for a great idea. Lynne's Christmas stamps are so imaginative and appealing, I like the way you have allowed them to take centre stage in this unique wrapping paper! Anyone who receives a gift wrapped like this will be thrilled, I'm sure. xxx

LOVE LOVE LOVE the custom wrapping and matching tags, Alison!! I used to make my own wrapping paper with white butchers paper and sponges that I cut out into festive shapes, like stars, trees & ornaments and dipped in metallic paints then stamped to my hearts content :) I think I'd like using vintagey stamps like this more :) Wonderful and creative way to decorate and wrap those gifts :)
XOXO-Shari
