Brown Paper Packages...

I have a gift tag to show you's my Mum's birthday on Monday, so this tag was to go on her present...I always wrap everything in plain brown parcel paper:

I stamped one of the cupcakes from the Hero Arts 'Cupcakes' set on to a tag (from Hobbycrafts)...coloured the icing and cherry using watercolour pencils...and paper pieced the paper case using a scrap of My Mind's Eye paper (from the 'Ooh La La for Her' pad). I added some shading (using watercolour pencils) to the paper case, then sparkle to the icing (with 'Tiara' Stickles), and some Glossy Accents to the cherry. Finally, I added a sentiment from the same stamp set and tied it on to my parcel using some Baker's twine (from the Ribbon Girl).

Challenges for this tag:

I love this Helen! And it's a fabulous idea to wrap everything in brown paper as then you don't have a problem of never having the "right" wrapping paper!

Thanks for sharing at Sweet Stampin'.
