WOYWW #128

What's on my workdesk? Meet Stella :) She is looking very determind to make sure that there are no crafting going on. The best way to do that, is to sit on it!

Here is what she is sitting on:

I have wanted to make my own giftwrapping paper and make fabolous looking gifts for christmas for a long time, but when christmas comes I end up wrapping the gifts in a hurry. This year things are going to change! Here is a giftwrapping paper that I have made. I used just plain Kraftpaper and stamped on it. I think the text stamp is called French script, but I don't know where is is from. Not sure where the other stamp is from either. I have never used it before, but I really liked it.

I used Distress Ink Walnut Stain for the stamping.

And here is my finished gift

I see that I should have been more careful when wrapping so that the pattern came at the centre. I will pay more attention next time :)

So what is on you workdesk today? Come join the WOYWW and see all the fabolous things going on in the crafting world.

Well Ms Plumb, I don't think the off centre image looks bad at all - I like the random-ness of wrapping apper and hand stamped - couldn't be nicer. The gift looks absolutely lovely.

I'm really impressed and you even have time to wrap more gifts. The off center shows it's truly hand crafted. I'm # 1 this week.
