I love our paper and ribbons this year-- the muted, texturized gold with the festive polka-dot ribbon.
But when I go to wrap the "male gifts" I never quite feel right about giving them elaborate bows, streaming ribbon tails, and sparkly adornments. So, when I saw Dawn's posting on her rustic cut-out wrappings (except my aren't 3-D pop-ups) I felt inspired to create the forest scene you see above. I have a few more to go and I'm thinking of a "grill" for Husband's cut-out... and maybe a line of Snowmen or a sledding scene for a child's gift. And maybe a slice of cake for another.
