Welcome to the Stampers Dozen December Blog Hop. This month, we feature gift packaging and tags. Be sure to visit all of the blogs on the hop to get that last-minute inspiration for your holiday crafting. Or save the ideas to use for Christmas in July and beyond. (Or use other stamps in your collection to create birthday — or other — themed packaging.)
Sparkling Snowflakes Gift Packaging
Do you need some last-minute gift packaging? Or do you just want to have some fun with your stamping supplies? Either way, I think you’ll love today’s project. From my craft room in Mesa, Arizona, I transform a sheet of basic white tissue paper and a brown lunch bag into fun, holiday themed DIY gift wrapping.
For both the tissue paper and the bag, I use Stampin’ Up!’s Sparking Snowflakes stamp set from the September-December 2023 Mini Catalog. The stamp set is still available for purchase through January 3, 2024. Save 10 percent when you purchase the stamp set and the coordinating dies as a bundle.
For the bag, I chose two of the snowflakes and used the Azure Afternoon and Balmy Blue Classic Stampin’ Pads and stamped randomly to cover the bag.
I used three colors (Azure Afternoon, Night of Navy and Balmy Blue) for the tissue paper. I designated a different snowflake for each color and began stamping the tissue paper. Super fun. See part of the project below.
And then I added a tag. The tag, from the Merriest Trees Bundle, is die cut in Balmy Blue and then stamped with Azure Afternoon ink. I stamped the snowflake in Azure Afternoon on a basic white die cut circle punched with the 2 3/8-inch Circle Punch, layered on an Azure Afternoon die cut from the Stylish Shapes Dies. It’s topped it off with an Azure Afternoon ribbon and an Iridescent Pearl.
I hope you enjoyed this project. I love finding ways to use my Stampin’ Up! products in creative ways. Please let me know if you have questions about this or other stamping techniques.
Thanks for stopping by today!
