Well its the day after our November Release and the project ideas are just beginning!

Be sure you get some creative inspiration from the team:

  • Katie Cotton
  • Lisa Kind
  • Tangii Crain
  • Today I want to share my project sample using our latest template release: Tri-It

    This is the cutest three dimensional triangle/pyramid shaped box, with 4 sides. You will definitely want to “tri-it” out! Perfect for the holidays, this Pretty Packaging Template makes the perfect party hat, Christmas Tree, or a tree for all seasons, Witch hat, candy corn, ice cream cone, or even a tent or tee-pee!

    Since we are in the peak start of holiday decor and gift giving I’ll share my festive version using this template, creating the obvious….a Christmas Tree.

    This sample was so quick and fun, but looks so much more complicated that it really is.

    I chose to use the Timeless Tradition © collection, like in my Sleigh Ride sample, to serve as the focus, making the design aspect easy.

     I had to add the sleigh from the Dashing Through the Snow ©, making it three dimensional, of course.

    I glued on some festive bows to the tree top. I then used a string of faux pearls to adhere down the tree edges, for a more elegant look, and added some adhesive bling to become my ornaments on the tree.

    Now you may be wondering HOW or WHERE you put your gift into this marvelous package.

    The scallop layer comes with the template, but you don’t even need to use it. That being said, there is a tuck in tab in the bottom, and it holds your gift in there securely!

    I packaged up these yum-azing Raffaello treats, which are a  coconut covered white chocolate truffle. It has a creamy center, with an almond in the middle! Really a must try. 

    I love being able to package up something that cost so little and making it that much more luxurious. After the chocolate is gone they can use this as part of their holiday decor, or re-gift it.

    Lastly because I always tell you to make sure your complete the design on ALL sides of your project…here is the back of mine.

    It really gives you the feeling of a pretty tree that you’d purchase for your room decor or to package up the specialist or simplest of items.

    Now stepping away from the “holiday” option, you can see that this really can also become a fun and playful party hat!

    Girl, boy, young or old….this is a winner!

    Add some fun patterned paper (like this one from the Retro Lunch © collection) to really make this an easy wow, and perfect for any party or gift. Add some coordinating paper ribbon and it makes it even more fun and festive.

    Given the tween theme (this was made for a friend of my 12 yo daughter) this was perfect!

    I printed the swirl pattern from the Fanciful Flourishes © set, the fairy from Lost My Tooth ©, and used the sentiment from the Rainbow of Wishes set and then cut my tag. The colors were taken from the patterned paper.  

    I just put some lip gloss, nail polish and a gift card in this one.

    It was a hit!
