When 3 of my daughter's friends were graduating from their resident program, she and the other residents pitched in and bought each of them a Kindle.  Michelle was responsible for the gift buying and wrapping, so when it was time to wrap the Kindles up, she came to me for assistance.  I started showing her some options, because she didn't really want to use wrapping paper, and things just snowballed from there, with me in the middle of the snowball rolling down the hill!  Ha!  Ha!

I used a variety of different ribbons and goodies I had in my craft room, including a die cut shape as the "background" for each decoration.  The die I used, which is my all time favorite, is the Top Notes die from Stampin' Up - love that thing!

The one with the big star is for a guy, and the other two are for the ladies.

I enjoyed doing this, and Michelle said they loved how pretty they were decorated.  I fixed the wrapping so that the ribbon would come loose without having to remove any of it, then reattach back in case they wanted to keep it for something else.

Thanks for stopping by!  Remember to stop by The Outlawz and play along with our Saturday Paper a la Mode challenge.  Our theme this week is: USE YOUR FAVORITE TOOL, AND TELL US ABOUT IT.  My favorite tool is my die cutting machine (I have a Sizzix) and my Top Notes die.

Big hugs and showers of blessings!


  1. Beautiful! And oh my goodness, what generous gifts! Thanks for sharing :)

  2. What beautiful wrapping for such gorgeous gifts. hugs, Ursula

  3. I love that die, too, Theresa, and I haven't used it in quite a while. The die cuts are fabulous as bases for your decorations, which are just gorgeous! Really nice job on all three of them! :^)
    Hugs, Penny


Thanks for the love - it makes my heart sing when I hear from my lovely friends!
