Gift Packaging

Here in Southwestern Ontario the weather is turning cool and the leaves are falling off the trees quickly.  It is days like this that I start to look more towards Christmas time and the various gifts I can make for family and friends.

Stampin’ Up! definitely helps me create fun gift packaging for unique stocking stuffers.  If you flip through the Holiday catalogue you will find so many fantastic products that you can very quickly and easily miss the Acetate Card Boxes (144628) on page 13.  They almost disappear into the page with the Peace on Earth project in one of the cases.

Todays little creation features these super fun boxes.  Use them to package several cards as a gift for a friend or use them to create fun little gifts.  Again I just had to use several of the fabulous products available in the catalogue.

As you can see I used the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper (144623), the Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack (144638) and the Foil Snowflakes (144642). Combine these with the Acetate Card Box and it is so easy to put together this cute package.

Now you may be wondering what I put inside? There is hot chocolate and marshmallows and a cute hand stamped Christmas tag.  You can always step it up and add a candy cane and perhaps a card, or some chocolates.  Really though, you can put anything (that will fit), inside these clear boxes.  Since they come bare and clear, you can decorate them any way you want and for any occasion!


Now how fun are these?
