Homemade Christmas Wrap

This week for my SP & Company project I want to use every one of the stamps in the Cutest Gingerbread Man set so I made wrapping paper. It was so much fun using all the faces and sentiments in the set.
I recycled the brown paper that came in a box. First I needed to ironed the paper. Then I stamped and colored all the cute gingerbread men. I used a red, green, yellow and a white pen to color them. Next I stamped all the sentiment in red and green. It feels so good being able to say that I used every stamp in this set.  I wish I could say that about all my stamp sets.
There are 8 faces and 6 sentiments in this set.
Here is the gift all wrapped up. I used some ribbon I picked up from Micheal's and I made a tag with one gingerbread man. I used my favorite face. The white is Liquid Applique. I love the way it puffs up when you heat it up. The buttons and face are colored with gel pens. This picture isn't nearly as cute as it really is. You will have to use your imagination.
This was a fun project and it felt good to recycle and use what I have. This gift is for my hubby.  I can't tell you what it is. He might be reading my blog. LOL But I can tell you he has been a very good boy and this is a very special gift.

Thanks for stopping,
