Hello Again!! Welcome to the next stop on the next Stamp of the Month Blog Tour…
This month, I have for you a few projects for your Christmas gift needs… A card, goodie box, and a goodie bag tag! All perfect for your gift giving needs. And, take my advice (and this is totally a “do as I say and not as I do” piece of unsolicited Christmas prepping advice). START NOW. then you don’t get overwhelmed in December. (check back in with me in December and see how well I heeded my own advice).
So, here it is:
First up is the Christmas Card. And I must confess, I got the color scheme from Pinterest. The polka-dots from the Christmas paper (Season of Style) and the Coastal Cabana (just fyi, I love this color so much I’m thinking of painting my kitchen a shade of it…).
Very simple layout. One of my favorite styles of cards (i.e. the 3×6). Tag is cut from the Chalk Talk framelits set. And, a piece of washi… And, of course, after I made this and was so proud of myself, I realized that silver cord is retired. But, we do have the perfect silver ribbon that would totally work. I didn’t wanna take it off cause it’d never look quite right for me to re-do… and I didn’t feel like remaking everything… SORRY. My apologies.
And, next up is a little gift tag. This would go wonderfully on a gift, a cello bag of goodies, or you could even layer it up and put it on the front of a card:
I love how the coordinating punch works so well with this set. And, you can punch a bazillion ornaments for all your ornament needs… You could even make cute ornaments for your own tree. The children would love to make it…
Just another view…
And, last up, is the little goodie box. SU has expanded their packaging line, to my utter joy and excitement. I LOVE PACKAGES. And, the best gift, given in a junk package is not nearly as brilliant as if it were packaged well… so, there is NO excuse for ugly packages this year…
ANYWAY… these boxes are super cute. They have a clear slide that allows a peek at what is inside. Don’t get too excited. I had no idea what to put inside at this point (It’s October, and I’ve already alluded to my procrastination problem…) So, all I have inside this one is the brown crinkle paper. Which makes it look cute, but the gift receiver may not be very excited about the gift…
The nice thing about this box is that you can put belly bands ALL the way around the plastic sleeve and its FINE. Cause the plastic sleeve slides off the box. So your design stays nice and you can still get into the box. BRILLIANCE I TELL YOU…. PURE BRILLIANCE.
Here is the set together:
