Pretty Packaging Blog Hop

Hello, blog friends, and welcome to your next stop on DeNami Design's Pretty Packaging Blog Hop! If you're on track you've arrived here from Barbara's GORGEOUS blog! If not...no worries...you can head to the DeNami Design Blog to start at the beginning!
 
This is my first blog post in a VERY VERY long time!!! My husband and I just returned from a 5-month trip to New Zealand! It was an INCREDIBLE journey, and I'll be sure to share BUNCHES of photos and stories in my future blog posts! But, for now, let's get to my project for today's hop!!!
 
I decided to make my own wrapping paper using an old kraft shopping bag, several of my favorite festive DeNami Design stamps, and some red/brown/white ink.

 
Then, I wrapped a package, created a coordinating tag and added some DeNami Design grosgrain ribbon to finish it off:
