Christmas Wrapping with the Imagine


Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful day with family and friends!

There are so many cute little images on the Imagine Snow Angel cartridge, that I thought it would be fun to try making wrapping paper that I could coordinate with a gift tag. It turned out to be really easy. I love the look of kraft paper, so I was excited to find this Scotch Dust Cover paper at Michael's for under $3.00. It comes in a roll of 75 square feet, which means 75 pieces of wrapping paper with the Imagine! Keep in mind that this technique only works with those extra special, small packages.


To make my printed paper, I used a 12" x 12" piece from the roll. On the Imagine, I chose the little stocking from Snow Angel twice, both times at 1". For the second stocking, I flipped it vertically. I then went to my mat and chose "Auto Fill". The last step was to go to my settings and change it to "Print Only", and then I went ahead and printed.


For the tag, I printed and cut the same stocking at 2", this time in layers. I also used the "Cut Only" setting to cut the tag and layers at 3.5" from Sweet Treats. The sentiment is heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I finished it up with a gold eyelet.
