Bring on the merry {reverse confetti sneak peek}

 I'm thrilled to be guesting with Reverse Confetti today (and for their release day on Friday as well!) to show off their new set, "Bring on the Merry."

"Bring on the merry" is such a great sentiment set - perfect for mixing and matching on holiday cards....and gift wrap:

bring on the merry {reverse confetti sneak peek}

I wrapped a gift in kraft packing paper (I always buy a huge roll from Staples) and then cut a thinner strip to create a belly band in the middle.  I stamped "have yourself a merry little Christmas and a happy new year" to wrap all around the gift.  A huge paper bow makes the present all ready for the giving.  I really love this look - that outlined "merry" is just begging to be colored in, isn't it?  Just wait until Friday, hee hee.

There will be a 15$ gift certificate up for grabs during the sneak peeks.  Be sure to leave comments on all of the designers' blogs (you have until noon - CST time - on November 7th) and a winner will be chosen at random and announced later that day.

  3. OMG! Amazing gift wrap!!!! And you're right on sooo many levels: Kraft wrapping is the best, a giant (red!!!) bow makes everything better, and that merry needs to be colored in on a project!!! Lol!!! So amazing!!
