Brown paper packages...tied up with string...


 ...well actually they're tied up with ribbon...but you know what I mean.

So...what's inside???


They're post-it note covers...just a little something for some special crafty friends, to go with their Christmas cards. I've used Penny Black images on them all from various clear sets...the smaller stamps are just perfect for this kind of thing, and the spotty papers are all from the 'Wild Asparagus' collection by My Mind's Eye. I cut the images out using Nesties, and then inked around the edges using chalk inkpads. I always wrap my presents with brown paper...I prefer to 'pretty them up' with ribbon or tags...that way everything coordinates and you don't need different papers for different occasions...the ribbons I've used on these are a mixture from Tescos, Dovecraft, Poppicrafts & Anita's.

I'm going to enter these into the following challenges:
