Handstamped Christmas Gift Giving Packaging

Handmade Holiday Gift Giving SetWelcome to day 3 out of 4 of the Blog Tour!  I’m having a great time and I hope you are too!

I had way too much fun working on the projects for today!  I have so many pictures to show you, I hope you won’t mind!  The set of items you see above is made using the colors of Rich Razzleberry, Bashful Blue, Pale Plum and of course Whisper White.  The stamp sets are Serene Snowflake, Four the Holidays and Delightful Decorations.

Serene Snowflake & Delightful DecorationsI bought a 2-pack of white gift bags at the local dollar store for just a dollar, of course I couldn’t leave it white though!  After stamping the bag I cut the snowflake with the Big Shot and attached it to Bashful Blue cardstock with a Ice Circle Brad.  The ribbon you see is the Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot ribbon.  The nice thing about this ribbon is that only one side is polka dot, the other side is plain!  To make the ornaments I embossed a bulb from Delightful Decorations in white on Rich Razzleberry cardstock and then cut it out with the ornament punch.

Delightful Decorations Holiday BagHere’s what I did with the other bag.  I used the same idea but changed the colors to Tempting Turqoius, Taken with Teal, Night of Navy and silver.

Four the Holidays Christmas CardAfter making the bag I wanted to make a matching card.  I used the same idea, just a smaller snowflake die and some Bashful Blue grosgrain ribbon.

Christmas Stocking Handmade BoxI made this little stocking box to correspond as another gift packaging option.

blog tour 20th 2Did you notice the matching tissue paper?  I love to have fancy tissue paper but I absolutely hate to pay extra for it so I don’t, I just stamp it!  One of the great things about stamping is that the ink soaks through and both sides become decorated!

rubber stamping and childrenEven better than getting double sided paper, though, is the fact that it’s a fun activity to do with your children!!  Put some paper under the tissue and put them to work!  When it’s time for them to wrap up their presents for siblings and mom and dad, let them use some of their special paper!

I hope this has inspired you for your holiday packaging!  I’d love to hear from you if you like it!  No doubt Kim Warne is going to have something great to share with you as well so be sure to continue on to her blog next.
