This packages are gorgeous – couldn’t expect less from Stampin’ UP!.
Christmas is the perfect time to create some pretty packages! I decided to go with a Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Basic Black, and Gold color combo. Yes—that’s right! Mix your whites and creams! You can achieve a layered look with your projects simply by using those two colors together.
The Takeout Boxes are darling! They are the perfect size for a small gift or box of yummy treats. I used the White Filter Paper to create a belly band around the box. I scrunched it up and sewed it down the middle to keep it gathered. I added some interest to my star die cut by using the Eclectic Paper-Piercing Pack to outline a few stars within the shape. This is an easy way to add detail.
I used the Gift Card Enclosure Pack to create a little box. This technique was demonstrated to us at convention. Simply brilliant!! You score at 1/2″ from the original score line along three sides. Secure the flaps using Sticky Strip and add a belly band to help contain your goodies. I used the Festive Designer Kraft Paper Rolls for my belly band. I LOVE these paper rolls! The quality is excellent—much thicker than I thought they would be.
My last pretty package was created using the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits Die. This die creates the perfect little enclosure for a gift card. I used the Kraft Cardstock for my base and then I began creating a pretty belly band using the Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper to keep it closed. The belly band simply slides on and off.
I love using the Kraft color as a base for my projects—especially for pretty packages!
