Cafe Gift Bags

I love these little Café Bags, great to package little treats.
I love how they are lined so that you can put cookies and handmade treats inside and they won't make the bag greasy on the outside.
Here I used some of the Trim the Tree DSP which is a very heavyweight Kraft cardstock, perfect for making boxes with.
I stamped a "Merry Christmas" greeting from the "Merry Everything" stamp set and punched out with the co-ordinating "Note Tag" Punch then attached with a Stampin' Up! mini peg.
The Thick Bakers Twine is in Old Olive and can be found in the Autumn/Winter Catalogue.
I hope you like my little treat packaging and come back soon for some more Christmas creations.

Gift Box Punch Board Box Christmas Packaging

I love how quick and easy it is to create a box using the new
Gift Box Punch Board from Stampin' Up!
Here is made my box using the Trim The Tree Speciality Designer Paper which is AMAZING!  I love how thick the kraft paper/cardstock is, perfect for boxes and bags.  The patterns are gorgeous and the colours are great.
The Cherry Cobbler Sheer Linen ribbon is gorgeous, ties perfect bows and can be found in the Autumn/Winter Catalogue.
I created a "lid" for this box, it's not difficult to do and gives a different finish to the usual boxes created with the board.
I added a tag using the "Note Tag" punch, stamped images using the "Cheerful Christmas" then made another tag using the Scallop Tag Topper Punch with more of the Trim The Tree DSP and pegged my smaller tag to it.

Would you like to learn how to use the Gift Box Punch Board and are local to me, why not join one of my classes in the New Year, details to follow soon.
I may even do a "Class in the Post" so do come back to find out more.

It's a Wonder, December Wonder!!

I really like the set "December Wonder" in the Autumn/Winter supplement, although it's perfect for using on your Project Life layouts it's just as great on your cards, tags and home décor projects.
My colour combo is
Real Red
Soft Sky
Lost Lagoon
Garden Green
I love lots of images from this set, the lovely Label Frame, the Snowflake and the word "Winter Wonderland" greeting!  Here I used the Christmas Cheer word to fit inside the decorative frame.
I have also used the Confetti Stars punch which is so useful, don't think of it as just for Christmas, will be so useful on your boy and man cards.
Here you can see a closer view of one of the Snowflakes, they are so pretty.

Christmas Gift Money/Treat Packaging

You should know by now how I love to package things, especially inexpensive little treats.
This is no exception, hidden in here is a Kit Kat Bar, but you could easily slip in some money or a voucher/gift card.
I am loving this patterned paper pack "Nordic Noel", consisting of some gorgeous colours including Real Red and Soft Sky with a little Garden Green.

I used a stamp set called "December Wonder" which I love, you can find it in the Autumn/Winter Supplement, but remember these items are only available while supplies last.  I adore the snowflake image.
Inside I stamped onto a Glassine Bag and adhered it to the pouch with Sticky Strip and added my treat!  Some lovely co-ordinating ribbon held it all together.
