The holidays will be upon us before we know it so we have chosen Gift Packaging for the Holidays for the November Theme in this months’ Stampers By The Dozen Blog Hop. I make many home made gifts and I love wrapping them in beautiful hand made packaging to make them extra special, don’t you?
Our Striped Treat Bags (#144255) help make your gift packaging come together quickly while making those smaller gifts feel special. I used Versamark Ink and Gold Embossing powder to emboss the “No Peeking” from our Merry Little Labels stamp set.
I dipped the tips of our Green Sprigs (#144627) into our Embossing Paste (#141979) to look like snow. Add a 1/4 Foil Snowflake, and a bow made from our Red Tinsel Trim (#144636) and you’ve almost got your packaging finished. I attached the foil Snowflake & Green Sprig onto the tag with a staple, the bow with a glue dot & put the gift inside, folded over the top of the bag and clipped the tag on using one of our Gold Library Clips (#144130).
Just imagine these sitting on a table, with greenery and white lights, ready to give to friends as they stop by during the holidays!
How about making the gift everyone wants a little extra special this year? This is a quick Gift Card holder and card in one! You could give a gift card in the simple,plain folder you can get with it at the store but why not make it special? I used the Carols of Christmas stamp set (#144804) and our Be Merry Designer Series Paper (#144111). The colors of ink are Cherry Cobbler & Garden Green with Cherry Cobbler cardstock as the card base.
I will be sharing a video on how to make this holder Tuesday so be sure to come back to see how you can make these and have them ready to fill. I know your friends and family will be in awe when they see all your hand made gift packaging under your tree this year!
