men's birthday presents..



sorry if you've come to my blog because you read the title of the post and you were hoping for ideas for buying presents for men. I'm no help there..

but I think I can help with wrapping them. I used the new hotpick stamps from Paperartsy to create flowers from brown wrapping paper, and I love how they turned out: masculine, yet sort of beautiful.

The basic inspiration for these flowers came from Kris Hankins here
