  • Today I wanted to mix the old and new and share a fun project with you all!

    Puckered Pattern Round Up

    I chose to “re-new” the Pucker Up © template.

    This is a fun shaped gift box, with A LOT of possibilities. I turned it on it’s side for this gift idea. Generally people thing it has to sit on it’s flat bottom, but it does sit well this way too, as you’ll see a little ways down the post 😀

    You may wonder WHAT I am going to put in here.

     I always love sharing some fun items to package up, and honestly hadn’t had too many brilliant unique ideas, as I always get in a Summer FUNK, but did think this was a truly sweet idea 😀


    Well, we have a farm nearby and they make an AMAZING Caramel Apple Dip Mix. You just add a few simple ingredients, and YUM!

    Packaged with the tag topper it doesn’t fit, so I remove the tag (which tell you how to make the dip with the mix), and slip it into the box center, and then slide in my Caramel Apple Mix as seen here. It’s simply scrumptious. I gave some of these out for end of year teacher gifts. A different “apple” version of a gift 😀 Hopefully a good thing!

    The gift inspired my colors too!

    I used the NEW! Round Up set (and Round Up Tag cut file) for the main focus of my gift. I layered and colored by tag, then went ahead and “re-colored” my Blooming with Elegance © paper to match 😀 Hues of red and dark chocolatey rich colors. I punched a circle of the paper to fit my tag center.

    The sentiment “A little surprise to brighten your day!” comes from the Secret Surprise © set.

    While the overall design was simple, I think it has a lot of appeal with the rich colors and use of pattern.

    To add the the simple elegance was the AMAZING Abra-Bow-Dabra ©. Just created and plop on the top! WOW!

    Isn’t this just stunning? I love it.

    I decreased the file size to 70% (I think) for this one, and welded two of the bows together to create the large bottom of this bow.

     Just another fun idea.

    I then created the rest of the bow as it comes. It’s actually quite stunning in person, I promise!

    I think this will definitely brighten the day of someone!!

    Well thanks for checking in today, and I really hope our latest release got you inspired to try out some of what you’ve seen or sparked a new gift idea for you to try.

    I’ll be back with more before you know it.

    Until then, happy creating.
