'Anything But a Card' - Creation Station Design Team Blog Hop

| on

 Hello to the 4th Sunday in the month, and to the Creation Station Design Team Blog Hop for December 2021!

You may have hopped to me from Yvonne in the Netherlands, or have started with me?

Get yourselves ready for our 'Anything But a Card' Blog Hop.

Creating Packaging & Gift Tags is right up my alley.

Christmas packaging!
A gusseted bag from the lovely 'Ombre Gift Bags', and a 'Pretty Pillowbox' and a 'Bon Bon' style treat holder. All with their own little gift tags too.

How to gusset your 'Ombre Gift Bag'.
From left to right...
1. Trim 1/8" or 0.5cm from the bottom of the gift bag.
2. Front of Gift Bag - Score 1" or 5cm on the right hand side. Turn over...
3. Back of Gift Bag - Score 1" or 5cm on the right hand side.
4. Score 1-1/2" or 4cm on the bottom of the gift bag.
5. The score lines on the gift bag.
6. Snip the score lines to the 1-1/2" score line using 'Paper Snips'.
7. Fold in the sides of the bag, and use a 'Bone Folder' to gently burnish the score lines.
8. Open the bag at the bottom to apply the 'Multipurpose Glue', and 'Tear & Tape Adhesive' as shown to 9. Decorate!

From this, to this!

There's nothing cuter than a 'Pretty Pillowbox'.
I added some 'Sahara Sand' cardstock underneath the flap, and simply wrapped with some 'Linen Thread'.
Decorate with the gift tag with holly leaves & berries.

From this, to this...

And the 'Bon Bon' style treat holder which holds 2 Lindt Balls or Ferrero Rocher.
Watch this Youtube video by Linda Parker, to create your treat holder. Linda uses the 'Envelope Punch Board', where I scored the ends at 1-1/4" and pinched the ends together. 
Tie 'Evening Evergreen Chevron Weave Ribbon' on the ends of the 'Bon Bon' to secure.
Stamp the 'To & From' sentiment onto 'Sahara Sand' cardstock and die cut using the 'Tailor Made Tags Dies'. 
Decorate with the die cut holly leaves & berries.
Add some 'Linen Thread' to the tag, and adhere to the box with 'Stampin' Dimensionals'.

From this to this...

Next up is Dani and her amazing creations.

  1. What a great tip on how to gusset a bag, thanks for sharing!

  2. I love your simple transformations for holiday gifting. These all would make great little table gifts, too.

  3. That little bit of Sahara Sand tucked under the flap of the pillow box -- oh my! Amazing how such a little thing can elevate the whole.
