Summer Bird Stamped Tissue Gift Wrap

Hi, Friends......

Are you up for an easy and fun project that can include the kids? Recently I was watching my 8-yr old granddaughter for the day and we had a power outage for around 3 hours. It turned out to be a wonderful blessing in disguise because we got to do a bunch of low-tech kinds of activities together. (....which I think kids should be doing instead spending hours on their electronics, anyway!!)

I had a new bird field guide that I wanted to wrap up and give to our pastor's wife, so my granddaughter and I (with the aid of flashlights) stamped bird images on some brightly-colored used tissue gift wrap that I had previously flattened and stored folded.  So fun and cute!!

(We prob should have stamped more images on the tissue since they look a bit sparse on this small gift, but it looked like we had a lot on there on the big unfolded sheet! Oh, well...part of the blank space got covered with a sticky note, anyway.)

Supplies used include:
Stamplorations -Trendy Birds stamp set
Altenew Crisp Dye Ink in Desert Night and Dusk
Used Tissue Gift Wrap

Hope you liked this fun idea for gift wrap....and great way to reuse that pretty tissue that I bet you save just like I do!! lol.... Thank you for stopping by today.

  1. Save used tissue and gift wrap? Who me??? ( know I do). What a fun and creative way to take advantage of a power outage and customize a gift. Those Stamplorations bird images look wonderful against that bright green tissue paper!

  2. So cute! I save tissue paper too and have wonderful times crafting with the grandchildren.

  8. Well, aren't you just the creative one!!! I totally LOVE this idea, and rest assured it's filed away in my forgetful brain for the next time I need to wrap something! Great job! Thanks for joining us for our 'Things with Wings' challenge at The House that Stamps Built.

  9. What a great idea!! I totally save ALL the tissue paper from gifts!! I remember doing something similar waaaaaaaay back when I first got started stamping. Have forgotten all about it! Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built.
