Christmas Packaging party

The weekend brought on the fun of a Christmas Packaging Party. We created 6 projects including one Christmas decoration. I really enjoyed myself!

The Christmas Tree decoration was created by attaching scallop circle punch outs to 3 triangles. The pieces were tied together with Whisper White taffeta ribbon threaded through holes created by the Crop-a-dile. Photograhes and a Christmas message can be attached to the inside of the tree.

The Holiday Harmony Designer series paper was punched out after stamping some of the Season of Joy stamps in Whisper White and Purely Pomegranate.

The small star was punched out and attached to the top with Purely Pomegranate satin ribbon attached to the bottom of the tree on this panel.

The first session of the day included a Stamp-a-Stack with coordinating cards to some of the packaging items.

The Christmas tree from the Season of Joy stamp set was stamped in Always Artichoke using the generation stamping technique.

Holiday Harmony DSP was torn across the top and the snowflake stamped in Purely Pomegranate and punched out with a River rock scallop circle punch.

WINTERGREEN origami box. Two 6 inch pieces of Wintergreen Designer series paper were used to fold the lid and base of this package. A snowflake from the Snow Flurries stamp set was stamped in Sage Shadow and punched out. Always Artichoke and Soft Sky circles were also punched out and attached to another piece of the Wintergarden DSP.

Another project was a Slider box using the Dashing Designer Series Paper. The Merry Merry stamp set was used to stamp snowflakes in Real Red and Old Olive on the wrap. Old Olive wide grosgrain wrapped around the box.

The ladies received a chocolate with a lovely coordinating tag also. Some of the ladies consumed the chocolate (as I would) before it was time to fit it in the box. The 1 3/8"circle punch was used for the insert. What else would you put in this box???

Some more coordinating cards and gift certificate. The gift certicate has a brad covered in Dazzling Diamonds applied with a glue dot and looks stunning IRL.
