Patchwork Star

There is no chance that I would make this wrapping paper for all my presents, I would be here until next Christmas but thought I'd make some for some crafting pals presents. People I know would appreciate the thought and with any luck spend at least 5 seconds looking at the wrapping before they tear through the paper to see what the gift is! I used some really old square ink pads which rarely see the light of any more but worked really well with this project and the star stamp is from a Craft Stamper magazine. The tags are some Tim Holtz journalling ticket which a craft pal gave me in a swap. Thanks Cherry.

I have designed this wrapping paper for the following challenges ABC Christmas 'W for wrapping' and By Cute and By Girly 'Twinkle Little Star'.
