Have you guys started getting ready for the holidays yet? For the last few years, I’ve waited until the last minute, but this year I’m trying to get ahead of the game and wrap some gifts that I already know I’ll be giving.
My Holidays book is a good way to start. And I wanted to wrap them in a cute, quick and totally customizable way. So I’m working with Zazzle.com  to create fun, custom cards and packaging. You can upload your own photographs or artwork to their site to make endless types of unique gifts from shirts and phone cases to lunch boxes and lamps. Lots of stuff.
I stayed with paper products though and made something special for the holidays. I used some of my photographs from the book to create illustrated versions of my cake pops, so the whole gift could be one cute coordinating package.
I started with cards, but soon stumbled onto stamps!
Ack! Have you ever made your own stamps? This is such a cool extra touch that makes mailing something more special.
The only problem is they are so cute I don’t know if I can stand to send them away. I think I’m going to just have to order more to keep for myself.
I also made these sweet stickers in pink and green… because, as usual I couldn’t decide on just one color to stick with.
But let me show you my favorite new thing to make.
Yes, rolled wrapping paper. You can get so creative with this for special occasions. Birthdays, anniversaries, the holidays, of course. I can’t wait to make more.
Okay, let’s get wrapping!
Oh yeah, I’m popping a few sticks inside the box with my book, so I relabeled them to match the packaging.
Wrap in tissue, stuff with some coordinating paper filler and then seal with a sticker.
Add a coordinating bow and it’s wrapped and ready!
Yay! One present down.
And here’s a few more. Pink wrapping paper for these adorable little Frosty Friends Mini Kits.
I’m thinking stocking stuffers.
Now, who should I send some to?
