A little gift

Hello guys hope you re enjoying a relaxing Saturday. I have just taken a coffee break and though I would blog another of our projects from Thursday. I designed a cute little gift packaging that is economical but also beautiful. With craft fairs approaching quickly we need to think how to package those goodies to make sure they fly off those tables.

It uses Stampin’Up cello bags and a bit of card stock as a base the rest is all scraps you will have laying about.

This would be a perfect hostess gift is filled with a selection of  yummy lace buttons and accessories.

the colours are Soft Suede, Poppy Parade, Pool Party  and Daffodil delight. YUMMY colours together , and the poppy parade strip at the bottom keeps everything contained.

The topper was made using the Framelits cut in pool Party then embossed with the Polka Dot embossing folder. The  pretty stamped motif is from the Apothecary Art set cut with the matching framelit die.

  1. What an awesome idea!!! I always wonder how to make those retired products / left over attractive so that people will want to take them home :-) tfs!!!
