Vintage Gift Wrap

Hi Everybody!
Jenny from Crazy About Cricut here, and I'm excited to be sharing another Timeless Twine design team project with you :O)  Since I have 4 young kids, I always tend to wrap things geared for the "younger generation".  I decided to try wrapping a gift with an "adult" vibe to it.  

Although my mom know's why she ends up with presents in Elmo wrapping paper, I thought I'd give her a treat this year!  (Plus she's always drooled over the gorgeous twine in my projects!)  Here's how it turned out:

*Timeless Twine - Black Kraft twine
*Art Philosophy  Cricut cartridge
*Papercrafting World - vintage graphic
*kraft wrapping paper (from the Dollar Tree)
*Stampin' Up! - Cranberry Crisp ink, Chocolate Chip ink (for inking around the gift)
*vintage button from my stash
*dark brown cardstock, dark red cardstock - from my stash

*I also inked the edges of the gift with the cranberry, and chocolate chip ink for a little punch to the kraft wrapping paper.

*This vintage flower button was the perfect touch for this color scheme :)

I hope you liked my project!  This was a little out of my comfort zone, but I was happy with how it turned out :)

Don't forget, Timeless Twine is having a design team call!  You can find out all the details HERE.  TFL, and have a twine-tastic day!
