More Gift Packaging

Here are a couple more gift packaging ideas. These are for my BFF Barb. She loves taking care of the yard and flowers. She's got the green thumb I wish I had:) I looked at some directions for making poinsettias with punches, but they used that 'other brand' that looked like a leaf. So, I looked at my new Five Petal Punch and thought it would do quite nicely. I put veins on the petals with my stylus. The smaller petals are adhered with a dimensional and finished off with pearls. I drew the pot on a piece of computer paper to get it the right size and proportions before making it from a sheet of crumb cake card stock. I sponged the edges with soft suede. The greeting is from the new spring catalog. The stamp set is called, "That's the Ticket" and was punched out with the ticket punch.

The second one is a bag I made from card stock and put the gift inside. Last is an ornament made from the Keepsake Ornament bundle.
These are the bags I made for my Secret Sister. I bought presents then made these bags to put them in. I'd never made anything like these before and this is what got me started making packaging for Christmas gifts. I had such fun making them for Nancy.
 I sure wish I'd seen this kiss tree in time to make some for the craft show. Next year I'll make some, cause I think they are sooo cute! The design and directions are from Brenda Quintana Link to her tutorial.


  1. Wow Carole. You have been very busy lately. Hose flowers are absolutely beautiful. I could think of so many uses for them :)

  2. All your pretty bags are just darling. I know that Nancy just loves them all. Love the Hershey Kisses Christmas tree. I need to make some of those.

  3. These are AMAZING!! I am in awe of the time and love you have put into packaging those gifts!!
