Creative Packaging

Hi everyone!  Amber here today, sharing a few last minute holiday ideas!  Are you ready for Christmas?  Are all of those gifts wrapped and beautiful?  If not, I've got a few tips on adding some "creative charm" to your packages to make them fabulous! 

This month I focused on the December Kit of the Month, Nouveaux Vintage.  It is a darling kit, full of vintage charm. 

I am taking part in a gift exchange this December that focuses on packaging.  I wanted my entire gift to have a vintage theme.  I started out by making a card.  I added a doily, stamped sentiment, a small piece of patterned paper, ribbon, and one of my Vintage Velvet Poppies.  A very simple card, took less than 10 minutes to make. 

Up next, my packaging.  I used glassine and brown bags to hold some scrap goodies and added embellishments and ric rac from the Nouveaux Vintage Kit.  It helped to coordinate each of my finished bags and just looked great.  Plus the recepient can recycle the packaging to make things. 

To finish things off, I put my gift in a box and wrapped it with brown shipping paper.  Love this stuff!  Cheap and so antique looking!  I kept the outside simple by wrapping red and white checked ribbon around the box, tied a bow...and topped it with another Velvet Poppy.  Add a twig of leaves and you're all done! 

How you package your gift is as important as the present itself.  With Creative Charms and the Nouveaux Vintage December Kit your wrapping problems can be very simple and creative!  Plus, did I mention how much the December Kit sales for???  Only $14.99!  125 pieces for that great price.
