Closing out Christmas 2014

Thought I would share a few of the gift wrappings I created for holiday gifts.  I used a number of items from former Paper Pumpkin kits (if you're a subscriber, you can still purchase refills of these kits--a definite benefit for subscribing!) as well as items available in the current annual catalog and the almost-finished Holiday Catalog.  I had such a good time coming up with packaging, I almost wanted to buy some more gifts!

These are the Take Out Boxes (#135827, 6 boxes for $5.95), dressed up with Festive Designer Kraft Paper Rolls ($135828, $9.95 for two rolls) and All is Calm Designer Series Paper (#135823, $12.95) bows (Gift Bow Bigz L Die, #129977, $32.95) and Paper Pumpkin tags. 
Lost Lagoon 3/8" Stitched Ribbon (#133672, $8.95) ties them up, and a "Be Merry" tag (Holiday Invitation, #135074, $21.95) is slipped into the bow. 

Now this little cutie stole the show at a White Elephant gift exchange:

A Paper Pumpkin bag (with included letters for the "merry") was stamped with the Epic Alphabet (#133663, $25.95) in Real Red.  The Real Red polka dots behind the "merry" was stamped with a Paper Pumpkin stamp and mounted on Silver Glimmer Paper scalloped circles punched with the 1-3/4" Scallop Circle punch (#119854, $16.95). 
But catch this tiny bow!  Sneak Peek item--this Bow Builder Punch (#137414, $16.95) is coming next week in the Occasions Catalog, and is sure to be a top seller!  Need a new Occasions Catalog?  Contact me!

And finally, perfect for gift cards:
An alternate use for the October Paper Pumpkin (8 of these triangle boxes were included, to make a "pie"); I turned them into sweet gift boxes, using the Bright and Beautiful stamp set (#135026, $32.95, or #135029, $24.95), embossing the stars with Gold Embossing Powder (#109129, $4.95), and cutting them out with the Star Framelits (#133723, $26.95).  Good Greetings (check it out NOW in the Clearance Rack!) was also embossed with Gold, and it was all tied up with Cherry Cobbler 1" Sheer Linen Ribbon (#135839, $7.95). 

How do you present your holiday gifts?  Won't you leave me a comment and let me know? 

I hope your holidays were everything you wanted them to be.  I traveled to San Diego to be with my grandchildren, and had a wonderful time! 

Check back tomorrow, as I begin to show sneak peeks of the coming Occasions Catalog and
Sale-A-Bration items--not to be missed! 

All items can be purchased here.

What have you created today?
