Simply Creative Gift Packaging

I am continuing with projects from the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event this past weekend.  I had two friends, one is a downline of mine, coming in from Florida for the event.  As Atlanta weather goes we were having very chilly weather, especially on Thursday when they were arriving.  I found a little humorous gift for them and made a package for them.

 

 

I realize I have once again used the snowman products, but in this instance it was very appropriate.  Do you see the designer series paper theme?  It is mittens.  And that is what is wrapped in the tissue paper.  I found the little “one size fits most” pull on gloves.  I love these because I have really short fingers and they fit my fingers! LOL!!!  The added bonus is they are very inexpensive and great as little add on gifts.  Or in my case because I tend to loose at least one of them.

I used the 6 X 8 Cello Bags for the gloves.  The topper is made by using a 6 X 4 piece of Poppy Parade Card Stock and added a 5 3/4 X 1 2/3 piece of Coastal Cabana to the front and back.  That is topped by a piece of 5 1/2 X 1 1/2 piece of the Let It Snow Designer Series Paper.  It is also on the front and back.  I folded this over the top of the bag and secured it with two staples, both placed towards the center.  I used the old SU stapler that is retired.  But any small craft or desk stapler would work fine.

For the tag, I used a 2 X 5 strip of Whisper White card stock.  It is punched at the bottom with the Banner Triple Punch and at the top with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch.  I stamped a scene from the Snowman Season stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  It is highlighted with the Stampin’ Blends.  The sentiment is one of my go to themes.  It is from #Elfie stamp set.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I will have a few more different projects for you in the next couple of days.

Tags for Fall

Sunday was the Fall card swap I do with my Stamp Club.  I made tags for the little baskets everyone places the cards into.  My favorite suite of products for Fall, and maybe in the Holiday Catalog, is the Gather Together products.    Of course that is what I used to make the name tags.

I am not very good at the infinity shots that some take of a group of cards and other products they have mass produced.  But I think you can see how cute these are.

 

 

I really adore the leaves from the Gathering Leaves Dies, part of the Gather Together Bundle.  They are perfectly sized, but best of all they emboss and cut at the same time.  Whoever invented dies that do that are some of my favorite people!!  I cut the three different sizes in different colors.  I used Merry Merlot, Crumb Cake and Pear Pizzaz for the leaves.

The sentiment is from the Gather Together stamp set and is stamped in Pretty Peacock.  I chose all of the colors from that wonderful plaid designer series paper.  The shape of the sentiment is from the Story Label Punch.  I also used the Delightful Tag Topper Punch for the top of the tag, but then I covered it up with the leaves.

The names were printed off the computer and then layered on Pretty Peacock card stock.  The finishing touch was the piece of Burlap Ribbon with a Linen Thread tiny bow.

The tag itself is 2 X 5, and the DSP is 1 7/8 X 4 7/8.  The name layer depended on the size of the name. 🙂  I see these as being re-made for a Thanksgiving party as place tags or for food names.  The thought is to just turn the placement of the decorations.  Make them 4 X 5 folded in half to 2 X 5 and sitting on the table with the decorations in top left corner or across the top.  I will post a picture of that once I get them made.  This is in my brain right now!

Before I go, have you seen the extra post I did yesterday about the upcoming Flash Sale?  Here are the flyers with the stamp sets that will be included in the sale.  15% off is a pretty good deal in my book!

A Special Day

I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s InKing Royalty Blog Hop.  There were some awesome Sunshine related cards and it is definitely worth your time to hop through the list.

For today I have gone back to the gift I made for a friend.  The Copper Tea Tin with the 3 X 3 cards inside.  So today’s project is the gift tag I made to attach to the gift.  I rarely wrap a gift, and the bags I have that are perfect size for the tin are covered in Red hearts.  The tag then does not match the color scheme of the gift.  But I think it is really cute.  I hope you will as well.

 

Stitched All Around, 148374

 

I absolutely LOVE the intricate detail on this sentiment layer.  It comes from the die and is just gorgeous.  As an added bonus it has all of this detail but cuts cleanly and pops right out of the die with no hanging little pieces.  WooHoo !!

You can probably tell I used both the Scallop Tag Topper Punch and the Banner Triple Punch to make the red tag part.  The only additional items are the little bling of a rhinestone to dot the “i”, and the beautiful ribbon for the tie.  All in all this is a super cute, quick and easy, gift addition.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I very much appreciate it and hope you will come back tomorrow for a new project.  All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

 

 


 

It is still a great time to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  I would love to have you join my team.  A great perk for demonstrators this time of year is getting to see the new catalog first.  Then we get to order and play with the new products a month early.  For me, that is one of the best parts of being a SU Demonstrator.  Of course, the discount helps!  If you are interested, please contact me and let’s talk.
