Good morning friends and welcome! We have a fun challenge starting today at SHOPPING OUR STASH: Pretty Packaging! We'd like to see your gift, or gift card, packaging. Think altered boxes, bags, tags, anything that would hold a gift or gift card. I bought a package of white pillow boxes a couple years ago, and so that's what I used for my project:
Yep, I made two! I used strips of patterned paper and snowman stickers I've had in my Christmas stash for years. Once I adhered the patterned paper to the pillow box, I die cut two sizes of ovals, and a scalloped frame. Stuck the sticker on the white oval, glued the scalloped frame to it, then that to the black oval. Then used a few foam squares across the back of the oval to adhere to the pillow box. Lastly, I tied on some twine. Super easy and fun to make!
I hope you find some time to play along this week at Shopping Our Stash! Also, since it's a new month, we have a new Guest Designer! Welcome Beth! (a.k.a. Myoriah!) We are thrilled to have you join us this month!
For more inspiration, do check out what my teammates came up with for this challenge, visit their blogs and leave them some bloggy lovin!
Just a reminder: We are looking for Guest Designers now! If you'd like to be considered for January, simply leave a "DT" after your name when you link up! Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
Thanks for visiting! I hope you have a great day!
