I get together with a group of friends every month to play a game called Pokeeno.  While the members of the group have change slightly over the years there are about 4 or 5 of us that have been part of this group for over 13 years!  We originally played Bunko but change several years ago to Pokeeno because we didn’t have to have a certain number of people to play.  So anyway – tonight is Pokeeno night.  And my friend Molly is the hostess.  Her theme is Real Simple and she asked that our gift that we bring (those are the prizes for each game) be wrapped in recycled items of some sort and to keep it simple.

So my project to share with you today is my super simple wrapping idea.

I used the paper packaging that Stampin’ Up! uses for our boxes when they ship our orders.  I wrapped that around my gift and tied it with a piece of Pacific Point Ribbon that I had left from last year.  I used that color because my gift inside is blue and it sort of matched.  I like to match.

Then to dress it up I decided to make a simple tag.

Here are the rest of the Stampin’ Up! supplies:

  • Big Shot Die-Cut Machine
  • Stampin’ Up! Two Tags Die
  • Pacific Point card stock (retired)
  • Whisper White card stock
  • Pacific Point ink (retired)
  • Sweet Season stamp set
  • Scallop Circle Punch
  • Circle Ice Rhinestone Brad
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Itty Bitty Backgrounds stamp set
  • Rub-ons – this was from a retired set.

I hung it on my ribbon with some white crochet thread.  It took only a few minutes to make.

My Real Simple wrapping idea!
