Wrapped presents for Digital Dozen does Christmas in July

Here is my Day 3 look for the prompt, Wrapped Presents. I really was trying to think of ideas that were still be bit Christmassy, but not obviously christmassy that made everyone wonder what was going on with my nails.  

I loved the metallic blue on blue stamping here. It was subtle but still noticeable. I used some striping tape for the ribbons, and I wish I was able to use the same striping tape to make the bows, but that was never going to work, so I just freehand painted those on with a gold polish that was a very similar colour to the gold tape.

I have to say, I wish my Christmas presents under the tree looked this fancy.  We generally dont put a huge amount of effort into the wrapped, cause the kids just rip straight into them, perhaps as they get older and the present get down to more single expensive gifts rather than toys, then we might have fancy wrapped presents.

  1. I made a bow like this out of striping tape about 4.5 years ago. NEVER AGAIN! It was so hard to make that little bow and I have no idea how I ended up finally getting it!
