I am so enjoying all the ideas the team has conjurred up in me after viewing everything they’ve been making! My head is literally ready to bust with new projects I want to try!

We have MORE to share today, and then if that wasn’t enough a great group post tomorrow!

Take a peek:

Bring someone some REAL holiday cheer this season!

A gift for you

Design Details: The tag was made using the scalloped window from the Lovely Labels 1 © set, the flower is from the Sentimental Occasions Labels ©  and the sentiment from Timed Write © set.

This could be filled with just about anything! Hence my post tite Un-Wined. I chose to create a tall gift box using the new Wine & Dine template, that was inspired by my card set I posted yesterday (scroll down to view). I think there are MANY times we can use a tall box, and NOT just for giving wine, as the name suggests!

I was thinking about packaging up some homemade chocolate dipped biscotti, with some gourmet cocoa packets  from Starbucks in here, or I could use this to stack a vareity of homemade cookies, or raspberry linzer squares (my fave), blonde brownies….etc instead of the using the standard rectangle box, why not stack them up?!

Maybe some bath salts on the bottom, and lotion. body spray on top? Some chocolate dipped pretzels, Candy canes, Pirouette sticks…you get the idea.


I made the base from black cardstock, and the top from whtie cardstock. I layred on some Dainty Damask © paper, recolored to black.

To adorn the top and ring the the holday’s with a little elegance I used the Perfect Poinsettia © cut file, ran it through my crimper and them brushed on some gold Shimmerz. I had some holly leaves that I also brushed with the Shimmerz.

For the Perfect Poinsettia © cetner I used a large dimensional glue dot, and I added some gold seed beads.

I think it turned out really pretty, but it is far better loking in real life!

The bottom line of today’s post is to look at ANY of our Pretty Packaging Templates, and try to see the uses and possibilities in each one. If you are “stuck” for ideas most times the descriptions list the many possible ideas for filling them or creating things with them, and don’t forget we have an amazing gallery of already made projects to help you SEE what you too can create. You will find the direct galler link to projects made for the product of your
