Gift wrapping doesn’t have to be boring and mundane!  I will admit, it’s not a favorite task of mine, but sometimes, if I’m looking to break the monotony of wrapping, I pull out my ColorBox® supplies and jazz it up a bit!  I did just that using ColorBox® Metallic Pigment Ink and ColorBox® Sparkling Embossing Powder to create this gorgeous embossed DIY gift wrap:

This technique took very little time and super easy to achieve.  I have been playing around with masking tape and inks lately, so I thought I would give it a try with the gift wrap.

I began by wrapping the gift with kraft paper; it’s easier to align the masking tape around the box form.  Without measuring, I created stripes with the masking tape-masking off the areas I did not want inked.

Using a ColorBox® Art Dauber, I applied Gold Metallic Ink to the exposed areas between the masking tape; for the larger area at the top, I gently pressed my ink pad onto the paper until I had complete coverage.

Once I completed inking the paper, I coated the inked areas completely with gold Sparkling Embossing Powder which adds just a touch of bling without going overboard!

I repeated the same process for the other end of the box.  Once the embossing had cooled, I carefully removed all masking tape and this is the end result!

All that’s left is to add a ribbon, tag, and an ornamental berry branch.  You could even substitute the branch for a fresh sprig.

About Suzanne Austin

Hi!  My name is Suzanne Austin.  I’m a SAHM of 3 kiddos living on the Gulf Coast in Alabama.  I’ve been married to my wonderful husband for 17 years and counting!  I began scrapping shortly after the birth of our son, and like most haven’t looked back!  It wasn’t hard to become completely immersed in scrapbooking-the process, the art, the design-I am still in awe of the talent that’s showcased in this industry.  My style is pretty versatile (and still ever evolving), but I tend to lean toward the mixed-media and inky side of scrapping.  My motto: Just do it!  I love experimentation with new ideas and techniques. I tend jump in head first-no regrets. I love the enrichment (and therapy :D) this hobby has to lend.  I’m beyond excited to rub elbows with our talented Creative Team for yet another term!
