Rustic Holiday Gift Wrapping & Silhouette Black Friday Sale

Disclosure: Silhouette sent me free product for review, but as always, all opinions are 100% my own.

As most of you probably know, I cannot live without my Silhouette Cameo machine.  It had me at "hello".  What is a Silhouette, you might ask?  It's an incredible piece of technology that allows me to craft amazing things such as the project that I'll reveal to you today.  In short, it makes my creative hobbies a million times easier and more fun!  

Do you love Black Friday shopping?  I do, as long as it means I can hang out in my PJ's and accomplish it with the click of a mouse. :)

Guess what?!?!  Just in time for your holiday shopping, Silhouette is having a HUGE sale like never before!!! 

That's right!  With a little help from a Silhouette machine, you could be wrapping pretty, rustic-looking gifts like this to give to friends and loved ones!  They'll be so impressed.

Now onto today's fun project!  Here's how to wrap your own simple, charming gifts using the Silhouette.

{MATERIALS}
Brown craft paper for wrapping
Ribbon

 Wrap your gifts using brown craft paper.  For a tutorial on how to wrap a really pretty gift, go HERE.

Now design the overlay of your choice in Silhouette Studio, prep it for cutting, and stand back in awe while the machine works its magic on the Adhesive-Backed Cardstock.

I cut a large snowflake for one gift and then 3 whimsical Christmas trees for a different gift.  Did you know that most designs in the Silhouette Online Store are 99 cents or less?!  I'm a fan. 

Note: No cutting mat is necessary with Adhesive-Backed Cardstock, as long as the recommended blade settings are used.

Now apply the design to your gift!  The snowflake wraps around the side of mine for effect.  I love that the adhesive-backed Cardstock is textured! I used transfer paper to apply the design because it was large and very intricate.  But if your design is small enough (or if you're very adept), transfer paper is not necessary.


Now add your ribbon and you're done!  I just love that I can cut a super simple or an extremely complex design with my Silhouette in only a few minutes for a one-of-a-kind-wrapped gift.  They're almost too pretty to open.  :)

My favorite part about this wrapping method is that it's totally adaptable for any holiday or occasion.  Keep the brown craft paper, then simply change up the ribbon and customize a design in Silhouette Studio that's specific to the event.  The options are endless!
