Gift Packages Can be as Unique as the Gift
Gift packages can be as fun to create as it is to give the gift. There are so many unique ways to package up a gift these days. Although we can still use the traditional wrapping paper, stuck on bow, the trend is towards more unique and individual gift packages.
Over the past month, I have created two gift boxes using the Kraft Gift Boxes and just had a blast. There are also some new gift packaging ideas in the new catalogue – the Tag a Bag Gift Bags and the Tag a Gift Boxes.
Here is the gift package and tag that I created for a friends birthday

The flower is die cut using the Secret Garden Framelits and then using the Paper Snips, each petal is cut to the center and sponged with Crisp Cantaloupe ink. Two flowers were cut to add fulness.
The Tea Lace Paper Doily was embossed with Silver embossing powder. Just swipe Versa Mark all over the doily and then heat set the embossing powder. Only 1/2 the doily was used. A piece of the Creped Filter Paper was torn and added to the doily.
The box was stamped using the Whimsy wheel stamp and Whisper White Craft ink. The tag uses the bubble wrap technique. The video for this technique is part of the Cool Tool Videos HERE
How about trying out some unique gift packaging yourself.
