It’s time for the InKing Royalty December blog hop. This month we’re sharing how we wrap it up for the holidays, using our Stampin’ Up! products in gift wrapping. Since my husband and I spend Christmas at the homes of relatives, we have a lot of Christmas gifts to fit into the trunk of our car. I knew that any kind of bows would be crushed, so I decided to decorate the wrapped gifts with flat ornamentation. I’ve used a few different stamp sets and embellishments. I’m sharing a few of them with you today.
