Lovely Christmas card showing the joys of present wrapping before printed wrapping paper was thought of!

For this one print:-

The Present Wrapping motifs onto quality white card
The JWS Parcel Wrapping minis sheet onto white paper (printer paper is fine)
The red JWS background paper onto quality white paper

To make the card, cut out the 10cm wide motif from the sheet with a craft knife and ruler together with a greeting.  Mount both pieces onto larger pieces of gold metallic card with double-sided tape then trim round with a craft knife and ruler to leave a small border.  

Cover the front of a cream A5 card blank with the backing paper using double-sided tape.  Add the motif and greeting with sticky pads.

To make the parcel, cut a 4cm strip of kitchen roll and fold it over several times.  Cut one of the brown paper parcel wraps from the minis sheet into two, then wrap up the kitchen roll in it, sealing with sticky tape.  Make sure the address and stamp is clearly visible on the front.  The one here is tied with a thread pulled from jute/hessian fabric.

Cut out a couple of the card 'letters' from the sheet along with a mini tag and stick them to the card with double-sided tape.  Add the parcel with a strong tacky glue such as Aleene's.
