Bits and Pieces

Good Morning!

Nothing to crazy on the blog today…some paper bags and bits and pieces of embellishments. I hope you won’t be to annoyed…buuuut I used my Crate Paper chipboard pieces…AGAIN! I picked up LOTS of new stickers, chipboard and die cuts from Love is in the Details yesterday though, so do not fear, new products being featured next week! Including new LIITD laser cut chipboard pieces!

I get to see some childhood friends soon, that I haven’t see in forever! Soo, I thought it’d be fun to put together little gifts for each of them!

All the chipboard is from Crate Paper with some random washi tape pieces and scraps of paper. The black and white paper is actually wrapping paper I had left over from Christmas!

The little flowers are from Prima. These are definite must haves! They’re so easy to use in nearly any project.

I picked up some flowers from a local florist, Bloom Petals and Gifts, and spice mixes (also some fancy hot chocolate and cider blends, not pictured) from Gingerwood Lane, a local tea house.

Day 9 of the #12daysofholidaygiftwrap…

Hi, hello, me again!!  Day 9 of this holiday-focused gift packaging series of posts!

Today, we bring you two paper bag envelope/gift bags (depends on the contents, I guess?) that might look a little feminine and other-occasion-specific, but the concepts and techniques still apply beautifully for a Christmas gift bag.

This first gift bag was run through a Big Shot machine with an embossing folder and then I layered up with the die-cut ephemera pieces to create a lovely and versatile gift package.  The top of the bag has been die-cut with an edge die that folds over at the top and layers with a piece of patterned paper, that coordinates with the rest of the embellishments.

Supplies are pictured below.

The next example is a Birthday gift bag (or card envelope) that is trimmed with 3 different patterns of washi tape and then embellished with pretty ephemera die-cuts.

Supplies used are pictured below.

You can see how little it takes to dress up a plain paper bag, whether it is kraft or white or even patterned, and how quickly you can have a lovely packaged gift for a friend or loved one!

There’s still more!  Check back tomorrow for additional ideas for last minute wrapping!
