Bicycle Giftwrap

I've just discovered a few draft posts that I'd forgotten about...so I thought I'd share one of them with you today. This is the wrapping paper for my flatmate's birthday present...I love using simple brown parcel paper to wrap gifts and dressing it up, either by using pretty ribbons, or washi tape...or (as in this case) by using stamps. I stamped my Hero Arts 'Bicycles' set using black ink randomly all over the paper, then made a matching tag using one of the bikes, and a Studio G sentiment, inking around the edges with 'Brushed Corduroy' Distress Ink (to match his birthday card)...attaching it with some black and white baker's twine.

Now that is a different look at adding a tag sentiment to a project. I love the idea and who would of thought. It's an awesome gift wrap and personalized. Thanks for joining us at Aud Sentiments for our sentiment on a tag challenge.
