Creative Gift Wrapping with Keepsake Ornament

Here's a quick and easy way to really schmancy up a simple package and as a bonus the recipient gets to have a beautiful keepsake wreath ornament for their tree!  This project uses many of the products from my previous post titled: It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year - love giving my Spellbinders and FSJ supplies double duty because it saves time, money and I get to create with products that I love - over and over again- YAY!

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

When two great companies recently merged I celebrated in a big way.  You may remember (way back when - like seriously a long time ago) I fell in love with Spellbinders and their wonderful die cutting & paper crafting products and then a few years ago I was introduced to Fun Stampers Journey that offered the highest quality in stamps, paper and other crafty goodies.  The best of both worlds has finally happened - Spellbinders and Fun Stampers Journey have merged to establish themselves as a mega paper crafting company and afford us one stop shopping of the highest and most innovative quality products on the retail market (insert: giddy smile and delightful claps of sheer joy!).

The exciting news is that both companies combined have thousands of retail products available to all of us - coupled with great promotions, discounts and of course tons of inspiration.  My card today uses products from Spellbinders and FSJ - it's quick and easy and the prefect combination of traditional with an added splash of Modern Farmhouse Style AND topped off with a little rose gold bell that actually jingles - I know right! Cuuuuute!! xoxo Kazan
