Easy Gift Wrap Idea with Crafter's Companion!

So many times I just need a simple way to present a small gift without
all the hoopla of papers and ribbons!
I whipped up this easy, folded packaging for my holiday gifts such as gloves, scarves, and (in this case) a knitted hat that all the kids are wearing!
This little image of Humphrey trudging through the snow is so cute!
Start with an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of your preferred white coloring cardstock and cut
to 6 x 11. Score your paper at 4", 4 1/2" 8 1/2 and 9".  Stamp your image in the center of your center 4" space. (Sorry, it was only AFTER I finished my project did I think to photograph it!)
Color your image and don't forget to add shadowing to it and the sentiment to look as though the words are shadowed in the snow!
Simply adorn with some pretty patterned paper at top and bottom and you have packaging that even the retail stores would envy!
Hope this makes some of your gift wrapping faster!
You could easily color one image and then make copies to put together dozens of matching gifts! (Think school/teacher projects!)
Have a great week!
