How many of you are rushing around at the moment looking for gifts and then once you get that perfect gift, you want to find the perfect wrapping but you really don’t have hours to spend on it. Today I’ve got a cute little pillow box to share with you. These are ready made boxes which come cut and scored and all you need to do is fold them, add a little double sided tape to hold the bottom end together and it’s ready to decorate.
Pretty packaging that doesn’t take ages to come together is what today’s project is about. I filled these with 10 gift tags and gave it to the lovely staff who work in our canteen at school. They are always so helpful and friendly and do an amazing job.
Embellishing this was very quick. The doily looks really nice against the white dots on the box. I then added a circle punched with that gorgeous glimmer paper which adds some Christmas sparkle.
The reindeer was coloured with Stampin’ Blends. I didn’t go to great lengths with the colouring as I wanted this to be a really quick project – you know Christmas – short on time – so many things to do etc. etc. To add sparkle to the bell on the bow, I added shimmer paint with an aqua painter which has no water in it so I could pick up the colour from the lid.
You could fill this with jewellery, cash or any other trinket and it’s such a cute and quick packaging that you could get several done in a short time.
As promised, I’m going to be showing you our fun Christmas and holiday themed products over the course of the next couple of weeks prior to the Holiday catalogue release. I am so excited to be able to share these gorgeous products with you. My mind is bursting with ideas and I want to try them all out so please make sure you subscribe so you don’t miss out on any of the fun we are going to have.
The product suite I’m sharing today is the Farmhouse Christmas suite and it is my favourite in the catalogue. It is so ‘me’ and it brings the warmth and homely feel of the Christmas season in all of it’s products.
There’s the stamp set with a farmhouse, truck carrying a freshly cut Christmas tree, a tree which has shed it’s leaves, falling leaves, a teeny tiny wreath and several sentiments. There are several dies to match, including stitched label dies.
Then there is a super cute distressed tin which you can decorate. It will fit several standard sized cards and would be great for gift giving.
The Galvanized buttons and Festive Farmhouse elements are great for embellishing as is the Burlap ribbon. There is also a 3 pack of cotton twine in Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow and Very Vanilla.
The Designer Series Paper has some wood grain effect, stripes and check backgrounds. Some sheets are with Whisper White while the others are Very Vanilla so you can change it up.
Another item in this suite is a Corrugated Embossing Folder. I think this is a great addition to our folders. It looks so good. I used it on my first project with the Holiday Catalogue, which was decorating the tin. Do you love the look of the Corrugated Embossing Folder?
I coloured the truck in Water Colour pencils. A reminder that the Assortment 2 of the Water Colour pencils is only available during August so if you love colouring in, then order them while you can.
