Jessica joins us today with her cute and clever take on gift packaging!
Good morning! Jess here with an idea for our Clever Gift Packaging challenge! I don’t actually own many of the treat box or gift holder dies from Lawn Fawn (yet!) so I decided to give you an idea of how to create gift wrapping without using a treat-specific die!
My husband and I love these yummy gourmet chocolate bars and I thought it would be fun to slip one into his lunch on Halloween! But I wanted to gussy up the packaging a little so I created a s’mores themed gift wrapper! I started by die-cutting the Outside In Stitched Rectangle from the middle of a 12×12 piece of Armoire patterned paper from the Knock on Wood collection. Then I trimmed the paper down to a 4”x9” strip with the rectangular opening in the center. I adhered a piece of vellum behind the rectangle and then stamped the sentiment from Love You S’more onto the vellum with Versafine and heat-embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder. Then I turned the strip over and stamped the flames with Versafine and heat-embossed them with Clear Embossing Powder. I colored the flames with Copic markers on the back side of the vellum to get a more muted look.
Next I stamped the adorable squirrel and marshmallow from Love You S’more onto white cardstock with Copic-friendly Jet Black ink and colored them with Copic markers before die-cutting them with the coordinating dies. I adhered them over the vellum window and then added a few accents with a white gel pen. Finally I die-cut the pink hearts from the Hearts die set, adhered them to the vellum window, and added a layer of clear sparkle for a little extra shimmer!
And that’s it! You have 2 weeks to get crafty and create some clever gift packaging for our current challenge and I can’t wait to get more ideas from all of you! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day!
