{Day 7} Season of giving

Shimelle's prompt for {Day 7} of Journal your Christmas is about gifts...giving, buying and all that fun stuff! I have to admit, I have been in a gift buying frenzy lately and doing this page actually got me in the mood to wrap all of them! I had fun putting all my little tags in behind the gifts. I was thrilled to use some of my Amy Butler fabric, vintage velvet and satin ribbon and some gorgeous fiber I recieved from my friend Ginger for my birthday. I added some other fun finds that I have been wanting to use in projects for awhile. The background is the flocked wrapping paper that I'll be wrapping my gifts in this year (if I don't use it all in my art first!) Always fun to use your good stuff in a fun project like this:)

It's gorgeous ... and I'm puzzling over it! Are those actually tiny wrapped boxes? Is this digital? HOW did you do that? Inquiring minds want to know!
