Hello! Well, we’re hurtling towards Christmas, but I have something else to show you today. When I get time, I simply love to coordinate my packaging with the gift I’m giving.
Last month, my girls had a birthday party for a friend, and I’d bought as her gift a cute skirt I’d found. The skirt was grey with white/pink flowers and birds on it. I made some cute hairclips to match, then decided to coordinate the card and packaging to match too:
This is my favourite big gift bag I like to create. I’ve been making more recently for Christmas too. It’s made from Basic Grey DSP. I’ve cut the large branch for the bird using the Flower Frenzy Bigz L die. I’ve added a Black Bird using the Bird Punch, and gave it a Strawberry Slush wing.
I’ve used some old Regal Rose Ribbon that I had stashed away for the handles along with some Basic Black Buttons.
My matching card is made from a Strawberry Slush base, embossed using the Large Polka Dot TIEF. I then cut a banner using the Party Pennants Bigz L die from Basic Grey card and added the Bird and Branches as before.
Finally I added the cute birthday sentiment #birthdaysrock from the #hello stamp set from Stampin’ Up! Perfect for those who are turning 8 I feel!!
Birthdays do indeed Rock! Good job too, as I have lots more coming up!
I’ll be back next week with lots more as I just took loads of photos and uploaded them.
