Welcome to this month’s Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop, where this month we are focusing on Gift Packaging and if you’ve hopped over from Caroline’s post, then you’ll already have some wonderful inspiration.
Today’s blog hop comes to you on a day when I shall myself, be hosting an All Day Christmas Stamp-a-Stack … an event where my ladies will literally be making a stack of Christmas cards. It was their kit pack bags that sparked my inspiration for this post.
The day is very much Red, Gold and Green (which reminds me of an 80’s dance track), but I wanted their kit packs to be far from these colours, so chose to use Pool Party as the base with a splash of Pear Pizzazz and Cherry Cobbler.
These Kraft bags are just great for a token gift. I’ve simply cut the top edge off and punched the edge with the pretty stars, before slotting a strip of card stock inside to help show up the stars a little more and folding it over. The silver thread is then threaded through two hole punches behind the tag and tied through the snowflake. So simple and cost effective.
The Clearance Rack has some wonderful embellishments for Gift Packaging at the moment, along with this week’s Weekly Deals. The Tag Topper punch that I have used here has been reduced and would be a great staple tag punch to have in your collection.
On Clearance Rack there are some great ribbons and trims, at some knock down prices. Be sure to click on my links to the right of my blog, where the weekly deals are updated every Wednesday and have a look … but if you do, act quickly to avoid disappointment and don’t forget to come back to hop on to see what gorgeous creations the lovely Louise will have in store for you.
Over the coming week, I will have a lot more photo’s of inspiration from my event today, so be sure to pop back for more festive ideas and do leave the Blog Hop girls and I a little message if you see something you like.
