Anything but Cards

Today is the beginning of a new week and a new challenge at the

The new theme is Anything but Cards.
This can be quite the challenge for a lot of card makers, but it's fun to be pushed
out of our comfort zones every once in a while.

I decided to make some fun wrapping paper using the new
I already had him colored up and scanned into my computer,
so I opened the image using Gimp, and tiled the image to look
like wrapping paper. I made a couple of different versions to
accommodate the smaller  box sizes.

I used my TH bow die for the coordinating package bows.
And I used scraps left over as the ribbons on the solid color packages.
Super cute. 

These would be adorable in a stocking, or as surprise gifts for the kiddos.
Something a little different, and very unique. 
I just wish my printer would print 11"x 17" paper...  

Please be sure to stop by the Aurora Wings challenge blog and see
what it looks like when the fabulous DT thinks outside of the box.
Did ya see what I did there?


  1. OMG!!! This is brilliant! Love, love, LOVE how you've tiled the images in different sizes and the colors are sooo pretty! Would love to see a pile like this under my tree but they just may be even too cute to open. xxD

  2. OMG what a fab idea Glo! I will definitely be giving this a go later....I absolutely love how you've coloured Christmas Lights Sprite, he looks sooo cute Hun. Huge Hugz, Lorraine xx

  3. What a great idea, Glo!! You inspired me with this gift wrap idea. (Going to get busy here soon. Also wishing I had a printer that prints those extra large paper...LOL) I just LOVE how you give your signature touch to the Sprite with your coloring, and making these packages instantly recognizable as yours. Fantastic sets of pics, btw. ;) Thank you so much for the great inspiration for our new challenge at Aurora Wings!
