Loved these cards Gina and they are so pretty.  I've been doing this for some time as some of the papers are so pretty I hate to throw them out. frugal nature too.

Merry Chirstas Gina to your family , your team mates and especially to you for all the great video's over the years you've produced to help us along in our paper crafting.  thank you so much from all of us.

I never thought of using wrapping paper for tags. Thank you for the great idea Gina. Question where can I buy the bow easy from?

Thank you for such a great idea. It made my packages seem so more special. You always have great ideas and I want to thank you for sharing. I will start saving more of my scraps now, for making tags for other occasions.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays to all of you.

Great video!   I have been using pretty wrapping paper for card making for years, I always look for wrapping paper on sale, that has a very small image or greeting, so it works on cards.  (any color or theme) But I never thought to do this kind of a tag to go with a gift  Great idea.

In all the years I've been paper crafting, I never thought to use wrapping paper!  What a wonderful idea!  Not only at Christmas too, I can see doing this for a new baby, wedding, etc. What a great idea to have a card and the gift wrapped in coordinating papers.  Thanks so much for sharing this !  Merry Christmas!

By the way, I meant to add that I always LOVE your videos!!!  Thank you for sharing them.

This is such a great idea to use the left over or scaps of the wrapping paper to match the packages.  The one thing I would do different since the wrapping paper is so thin would be to apply it to a white card stock bigger than you did.  This way I wouldn't have to worry about getting it exactly centered.  I would then use my little trimmer to trim down the white card stock leaving a narrow border around the wrapping paper.  I do that a lot of times and it eliminates possibly sticking it down and not having it centered exactly on an already cut piece.  (Does that make sense?)
