All wrapped up! - Wednesday 19th December

Good Afternoon dear  crafty friends!

What a nice surprise I had when I logged on here this afternoon...welcome to my two new followers and thank you so much for joining me! This is a late post and a quick one - I've ben gift wrapping all day. The presents for Tom and the close family were all that was left to wrap..well they are now wrapped, but I still need to finish the tags:)

Recently the lovely folks at Fantastic Ribbons sent the design team some gorgeous ribbons to use in a gift wrap project...I really enjoy wrapping and tend to go to town a bit on the wrapping for close friends and family...I had a wonderful time using these beautiful wired ribbons on some of my presents...

I don't often use plain paper, but chose to for this project, to show up the ribbons. I loved making the big blue bow, although it did take a lot of ribbon...hope you like them!

Sorry about the photos...there was just NO light today and I hate to use flash, expecially on shiny gold paper!

I'll be back tomorrow with some more 'makes' and a card sent to me that I'd like to share with you!

  1. Super, gorgeous bows, so scrumptious. xx Flora

  2. Somebody is going to be thrilled to receive these beautifully wrapped gifts. The bows are gorgeous.Love from Christine x

  3. These presents are wrapped beautifully! Love the blue one, the colour is lovely! They look too good to open and 'mess up' the bows!xx

  4. Hi Carole,
    such beautifully wrapped presents. Those are the type of ones you love to see under a tree. Shame they have to be opened on Christmas day. I suppose some peeps do just that type and leave them under a tree all Christmas, with nothing in them to make their tree look good. My Sister in Wales wraps presents just as beautiful as you. She has a large family and it must cost her a fortune to wrap them so beautifully, but then I think she buys her wrapping paper and ribbon over the coming months leading to Christmas. If my brother in law new how much she spent he would have a fit. lol. Oh dear I seem to have written war and peace again. lol.
    Have a wonderful crafty evening.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  5. Ah Carole, something else we have in common - I adore wrapping presents in the same way as you do, love big bows. Your presents look amazing! You are so right, it would be lovely if we did live closer together, we have so much in common - oh well, it is lovely having you as a blog friend. Thank you for your comments earlier, you are always so kind. Hugs, Anne x PS. Please do join in WOYWW next year, there are some amazing people there to meet. A x
