I have a quick post to show how I wrapped a baby gift, using die cuts from Frog Hop. I used MIM #46 to turn one of the frogs into a tag. I had actually done a project with this MIM when it was first released, but had to re-do the frog for this gift wrapping, since I didn't want him to be a hanging tag and my original frog had a hole in his head. However, I am counting this as playing along with this week's MIM #74: 2011 A la Carte, since I am trying to either do, redo, or at least watch them all.
I was inspired by this post from the Simplicity blog, where Susan explains her philosophy of wrapping gifts using plain white paper, dressed up with ribbons or tags. I took a stack of board books, wrapped them in plain white paper (a big roll at Staples in the teaching section cost about $7) and made a belly band of kraft and some patterned paper. I die cut a Mat Stack 5, ran it through the numbers impression plate, and then adhered the frogs. The middle frog opens to a tag.
