IT’S A WRAP WEEKEND – GIFT PACKAGING IDEAS!

Over the weekend on my Facebook and Instagram page I held a “It’s A Wrap” Weekend. I shared a number of ideas to quick, cute gift packaging. I’m sure many of us are still scrambling for last minute Christmas gifts and packaging them. I thought I would share them here in one post.

Before the weekend of sharing started I shared this cute tag and gift bag. If you are in a hurry just grab a white handled bag and add a cute tag. I used the Peace and Joy Bundle for this one.

Have some gift boxes around. Wrap around some pretty Christmas paper and add a cute tag and ribbon. These ones used the Gold Pizza Boxes and the Kraft Shipping boxes.

I shared this gift box last year. It used the Christmastime is Here Designer Series Paper. It is a tall gift box so you can fill lots of little treats or a small gift inside. It is so easy to make too. Just a tip: Be generous with the ribbon. It makes it look really lush.

I have the tutorial for this box -> HERE.

Like the gift boxes you can fill a little tin or a glass jar. Tie around some ribbon and small embellishment. The great thing with this one is that they can use the tin or jar later.

Lots of gift ideas I hope will help you. I have more to ideas later too.

It’s a bit late now to order the tins or boxes for Christmas but you can order them and stash them away for next year. The tins are greatly reduced too.

It’s crazy times. Hope you are doing ok.

PLAYFUL PENGUINS TAGS!

I have shared some cards with the Playful Penguins lately so I thought I would show you these cute tags.  I received them as a swap at our Team Meeting last week.  This was made by Barbara.  They are just too cute not to share.

I won’t give you too many details on them.  I think they are easy to see how they are done by looking at them.  The tag shape is cut from Whisper White card and the angles cut.  You could use the Paper Trimmer or scissors.

Products used:  Playful Penguins, Jingle Bells, Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, Everyday Label Punch.

Colours: Shaded Spruce, Real Red, Basic Gray.

All these products are available to order in my store now -> HERE.

HOT CHOCOLATE BAR CATALOGUE REVIEW!

A few weeks ago now I had the catalogue launch for the 2019 Holiday Catalogue.  I decided on a Hot Chocolate Bar for it.  Since Christmas is so hot here it’s not the time for Hot Chocolate.  Actually it had been quite hot the days leading up to the weekend so it was a bit ironic.  On the day though the weather cooled down.  It was a lot of fun and always so nice for everyone to see what is out for their Christmas creating.

I thought I would share a little bit of it with you.

Firstly, since it was a Hot Chocolate Bar I made up the little gifts in take-away coffee cups.  I know they are not environmentally friendly but I had these sitting around so why not use them.

They were decorated with the snowflake from the Christmas Layers Dies from the Dazzling Glimmer Paper.  It is a bit hard to see the sparkle.  How gorgeous is that Cherry Cobbler Diagonal stripe Ribbon.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Christmas set but check the frame.  You might actually miss these in the catalogue.  They are created with the Ornate Frames Dies from Shaded Spruce card and then a Cherry Cobber Scallop square from the Layering Squares Dies.

See it here closer.

In the cups I had some ribbon and little embellishments and of course the obligatory chocolate treat. 🙂

We made 2 cards on the day.  I will show you one today and then another tomorrow.

We used the Brightly Gleaming Suite for the cards.

The card above is quite simple really but it looks quite classy with the gorgeous shiny copper accents on the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper and the sparkly Star Designer Elements. The Copper Foil was embossed with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder.  Doesn’t that look a cool effect.

When I made the card originally I made a small gift tag up with some “bits” left over.  It’s good to have a matching tag.

The Classic Weave Ribbon is gorgeous with the embossed copper words on it.

I will show you the other card next time.

Until then, why not stop on by my store and check out all the Brightly Gleaming items in the suite. HEAD -> HERE.

Thanks for visiting.  Be sure to stop by again to see the other project. And By the way, If you live in Wollongong be sure to come along to a class sometime.  We are a friendly bunch.  It will be great to see you.
