I Come Bearing Gifts....

I've been getting all my small gifts organised to give to girlfriends when we meet up for our pre-Christmas get together next week. 

Each of these bags takes just a 12 x 12 sheet of lightweight card or heavy weight paper and a few scored lines.  I stamped and heat embossed in gold a tree image from an Inkadinkado stamp set before cutting it out using an oval nestie.  I used another stamp from one of my Inkdadinkado sets, which I also embossed in gold to match the tree embellishment.  I used my Crop-a-dile to punch two holes in the top and threaded ribbon through, adding the tag before tying in a bow.

The box on the right was made in the same way as the bags, just an extra set of scored lines at the top so that it finished up as a box rather than a bag.  I used a sheet of the fabulous double sided Costco papers which my crafting pal Kathy kindly got for me earlier this year.  I wanted to take a small gift of some handcream to my pal who is in hospital and it looks so much more special in a handmade box.  The beautiful ribbon was purchased at Michaels when I was in Florida recently, it has just the right amount of shimmer and sparkle.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing my festive packaging today, thanks for taking the time to visit my blog during this really busy time for us all - I do appreciate my readers and followers so much.
