Pattern Wrapping Paper

I wanted to wait until Kim received this gift before I posted about it.
I am sure that I am not the first person to think of this idea.
When I thought of it though, it felt like a Genius moment.
I wanted some kind of wrapping that was as awesome as the recipient.
I absolutely LOVE patterns.  This is a Simplicity skirt pattern.
I buy patterns all the time.  I never use them...I just buy them.
That is another post...or therapy session...whatever.
I wrapped her Loo Love in pattern paper and tied on a tag.
I made the tag with the Portrait line from Crate Paper.
I also used Pop dots...they are your friend.
Seriously...they have changed my life.  Yep...that dramatic.
My whole life.

    When I grabbed my Paper Issues order from the mailman I thought, wow, this is heavy. And when I saw what was in it, I kinda shreeked, lol. How cool is that package, huh? And the gift inside was even better.

    Thank you, Cassie. You're the best!

  7. WOW! I love the tag on there! It pops so wonderfully against the sewing pattern paper. Don't you just love that "kraft" color it has? LOVE all the layers/colors/details of the tag....I must invest in some of those amazing punches you possess! TFS! Happy Friday Girl!

  16. I love this idea! Thanks for sharing. I worked at JoAnn Fabircs off and on for about 10 years and have accumulated LOTS of patterns. What a great way to use them since I don't have the sewing time that I wish I had.
