Jo has some beautiful packaging today for us! So let’s get started. Here’s Jo!
“Hi All, Jo here today for a fun blog post. Today is about gift packing and with Valentines Day this weekend I have packaged up some presents for my loving husband.
The top & bottom box is using cardstock that I have customised for today’s colour scheme and cut out with my gift box punch board.
The colour scheme chosen for this set is Mint, Coastal Cabana, Silver and Whisper white. I wanted to keep the colour scheme soft but masculine.
The top box I have stamped the heart clusters from the Hearts stamp set repetitively with silver pigment ink. I have made a tag using a mint cardstock, for the faux stitching I have used a silver sharpie. The sentiment & embossed heart is also from the Hearts stamp set which was stamped on a die cut whisper white cardstock. The die used is from the Fancy Labels Die #2 ,white and a teal satin ribbon for the bow and to tie the tag to the bow some white twine. Copic Marker BG34 around the edges of the sentiment die cut has been used.
The bottom box has been created with a designer series cardstock that came already embossed so I was able to sponge silver pigment ink over the cardstock which resisted the polka dots showing through. I wiped the cardstock down with a tissue to make the emboss resist polka dots pop.
I have heat embossed with pool party embossing party the label from the Fancy Labels 3 stampset set on Vellum cardstock. The sentiment is heat embossed with white embossing powder and die cut from the Fancy Labels Die #3.
To embellish the centre piece I stamped a heart and heat embossed with pool party.
Hope you enjoyed today’s blog post. Happy Paper crafting peeps.
Lisa is up next with a lovely gift idea that is so beautiful! Here’s Lisa!
Hi Everyone! I am excited to be sharing Valentine gift packaging ideas today. I so enjoy wrapping treats to give as little gifts.
Today I have three different ideas to share with you using versatile Inspired by Stamping stamp sets and dies.
First up are these cute mini chocolate bar (I used Kit Kats) holders:
To make this treat holder, you will need a piece of card stock cut 9¾ x 2¾, scored at 2, 2 3/8, 5 7/8, and 6¼. Punch or die-cut an opening on the short end (you will see what I mean in the next picture that shows the treat holder open). The patterned paper measured 2½ x 3¼. The belly band is 1 x 7, scored at 2 1/8, 2½, 5 3/8, and 5¾.
Here are the Kit Kat holders open:
When assembling the holders, use adhesive along the top of the punch/die cut opening. Note, slide chocolate in opening first, then adhere closed.
To finish off the little Valentine treats, I packaged them in cello bags:
I used the Fancy Alphabet stamp set to monogram the heart tags. An alphabet set is a basic necessity in your stamp collection!
Next I packaged some Hershey Nuggets in a cello bag:
Lastly, I wrapped double packs of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (though you could use this idea with most any chocolate bars):
For these treats, I used the label image from the Fancy Labels 3 stamp set and die cut them with the coordinating die from the Fancy Labels 3 dies. The sentiments are from the Teeny Tiny Greetings stamp set and, again, I monogrammed these treats using the Fancy Alphabet stamp set.
After punching an opening in each end of the die-cut label, I ran satin ribbon and simply tied the tag to the chocolate.
Thanks for sticking with me through my trio of Valentine gift packaging. I hope you have some new ideas to try.
Dies: Fancy Labels 3
We hope you have an amazing weekend! Happy Friday! With Paper Hugs, Joanna xxx
