DIY Paper Bow and Wrapping Paper

A friend of mine just had a baby and I got her a gift, diapers.  I know boring, but this is her 3rd little girl and she has EVERYTHING, so as a fellow mom of many, I went for the practical gift of something she needs rather that just more stuff; diapers to the rescue!!  I had the dilemma of the wrapping, I could get her a cute bag, or buy some wrapping paper that is all about baby, but then I got my box in the mail from Paper House Productions and it was all baby papers....I knew I had to make something with it.  So with this dilemma of no baby wrapping paper or bag, I thought I can fix that!

Welcome to the Xyron and Paper House Productions blog Co-Hop, there are so many amazing designers all apart of this and I am on the last day of the hop, so make sure you got back and check out all the other amazing projects from both companies!!

 
With a paper bag from Target and my bag of diapers, I set out to wrap the present for this wonderful new baby girl.  Now the next problem, I had baby boy colors for papers, so I added in a little pink paper from the Home Front Girl collection from Paper House Productions to the bow, and boom a baby girl wrapped present.


Here is a video on how to wrap your own present using a paper bag and some scrapbook supplies.


My Xyron Creative Station and Mega Runner were the perfect adhesive for wrapping this cute little present.  I tried to use clear tape and it kept un-sticking, but the adhesive from Xyron held tight!



I sprinkled in some little puffy stickers from the Hello Baby collection (same as the striped and dotted papers) to the present, and I added in the fun little 3D Shimmers tag that lights up to the present for the two older girls to play with.  That giraffe is just too cute!!
