Welcome to an ESAD blog hop. You may have come to my blog from Siobhan’s blog. The theme of the blog hop today is to show case quick and easy cards, tags, packaging etc. using products from the Stampin’ Up! 2018 Holiday Catalogue.
My post today is going to focus on some really quick packaging for some Christmas goodies, mainly using items from the Joyous Noel Suite.
I started with a baker’s box from the holiday catalogue. These boxes are perfect for some baked goods. You can dress up these boxes a multitude of ways but the quickest way is with some Joyous Noel DSP (designer series paper) and coordinating Merry Merlot/copper reversible ribbon. Add a copper wire snowflake embellishment and it is finished. The last thing I added to this was a bow cut out from copper glimmer paper using the Christmas Tags thinlits.
Speaking of the Christmas tags thinlit, this thinlit with the matching stamp set, Tags & Tidings are a great bundle to make lots tags for your Christmas packaging really quickly. A single stamp produces multiple images at once and the single die cuts out all of these images. Use the thinlit to also cut out the tag shapes out of glimmer paper. Then you can mix and match the cut outs to create a variety of tags for your packages. Like the tag on this quick and easy treat bag created from a piece of the Joyous Noel DSP.
My last package would take a little more time with all the big shot cutting needed but not too much more, and can still come together quickly with a little prep work done first. For this project, I dressed up one of the kraft pillow boxes with some DSP, ribbon and mini sequin trim. I made the label with some stamps from the Labels to Love stamp set and punched the tag with the Everyday label punch. You could stop there and it would still be a lovely package but I wanted to give the box some sparkling glamour, so I added one of shapes cut from gold glimmer paper using the Christmas Tags thinlit and some foliage using the Pretty Pines thinlits.
