Triangle stamp {made by me}

I've said before that I feel that the gift wrap is just as important as the gift.  This weekend I had fun creating a unique gift presentation for a super special little guy.  I'm not the biggest fan of primary colored, happy birthday wrapping paper so I decided to fall back on my favorite box from Target. 

I wanted this gift to look modern and fun, but playful.  So, I grabbed a few simple items on my recent Target trip:
~gift box
~black and white Spritz gift tags
~pink eraser
Simple shopping list right?

A few items I already had at home:
~exacto knife
~tissue paper
~black acrylic paint (or if you have a black stamp pad)

Let the crafting begin.  I drew a triangle on the pink eraser and then just used my exacto knife to cut the shape out.  You'll want to cut away enough eraser that you leave the triangle sitting high enough off the eraser so that the edges don't get paint on them when dipping it.  This is the hardest part of this gift presentation.  Didn't even break a sweat did you? =)


Now, I just had fun stamping away.  Create whatever pattern you want.  You could have so much fun with this.  After it dried I added some bakers twine and the cute striped gift tag and my gift was wrapped!



Do you put a lot of effort into your gift wrap?  Or do I just like spending a ridiculous amount of time trying to make the outside of the gift look just as cute as the inside?
