Last Minute Gifts (Post Card Swap) - Send to Host by December 5th

Here it is, the Holiday swap you've been waiting for.
The idea is to make your post card look like a wrapped present.
Take a 4+1/4" x 6" piece of card stock or thin cardboard backing and either 

1. COLLAGE:  cover with gift paper or fabric (please glue it on well), then collage on a ribbon/bow, 
OR
2.  COLOR:  with acrylic paints (Gelli Plate printing is OK), 
watercolors or crayons, also "making" a ribbon/bow, 
OR
3.  SKETCH:  drawing in (or rubber stamping) some background designs, stripes, etc.  then draw or paint on a ribbon/bow, 
OR
4.  ANY COMBINATION OF THE ABOVE TECHNIQUES.
If edges seem likely to peel away, either glue or tape to secure, please.
