Papertrey Ink September Blog HOp

 Blog-hop-logo

Today is Papertrey Ink's September Blog Hop.  Today we are challenged to create a wrapping using either felt or fabric. Here are the inspiration photos.

One of my favorite ways to wrap a baby gift is in a receiving blanket.
 I created the yellow flower with a baby washcloth. The leaves are from the Delightful Dahlias die colored with Copics.


 The mat stack 4 die and Stamp set was used to create the tag. The giraffe image is a wood mounted stamp from Art Gone Wild. The ink used for the tag was Memento Rose Bud.
    Thanks for stopping by. I can't wait to see all the different wrappings created by everyone.
