Brown Paper Packages Tied Up with String

I recently sent a little care package to a long time blogging gal pal. As always, I was dreadfully behind when it came to actually mailing it out to her. So I didn't have time to fuss with it like I wanted, but I'm really happy with how the simple packaging turned out.I hand cut the tags out of cream cardstock and then added a swirly stamp in gold ink that I heat embossed. I also inked the edges and embossed them a bit too. Some of the swirls aren't as clean as I'd like, because I am not an expert stamper by any means, but I've decided they give it an artsy homemade feel. Don't you agree? C'mon, humor me☺
She's crafty like me, so I sent her some blank mini books to create with,
A set of alphabet stamps so she can personalize her projects,
And some assorted embellishements to fancy up her creations.
Plus a few books to give her some ideas. A little message explaining each package is on the backside of each tag. I hope she likes it all!

YES! I did and do love it all, Katie! ♥ It was so much fun to open everything and I was really careful not to break the candy cane string! I loved looking at each of those little tags and I think they came out great! I did flip through the books but I am enjoying the anticipation of saving them as my reward at the end of my baby sitting marathon!

Thanks again for these special treats! I'm so glad I won your give away! ♥
