Today I was playing around with some fun packaging ideas for gifts and treats, since the holidays are approaching! Here are some of the boxes I was working on today. I used SU's Kraft gift boxes (3.5" x 3.5" x 2.5"), and wrapped them with some glittery patterned paper that I bought years ago at Michael's. A 3" strip of 12x12" paper is almost enough to go all the way around the box, but there is a little gap at the bottom, which I closed up with an extra piece of coordinating cardstock. Then I wrapped them with SU's Cherry Cobbler striped grosgrain ribbon and added a bow with glue dots. The tag was made by stamping one of the images from Tags 4 You in Garden Green on Very Vanilla cardstock and punching it out, then backing it with two punched circles in red glimmer paper and Early Espresso cardstock. I tied the tags onto the bows with gold/cream baker's twine. The whole band of paper/ribbon can slide off, so that the giver can fill the box with treats and then slip the band back on. I am making birthday ones also, with different paper and colors, below. For those, I used the Sweet Taffy DSP, the Pumpkin Pie chevron ribbon, and the Apothecary Art stamp set. The chevron ribbon is the perfect weight and width for doing this kind of layered bow. Lots of fun!
Have a great rest of your weekend!
