MFT December Creative Challenge ~ It's A Wrap!

Hi there!  It's time again for this month's Creative Challenge from My Favorite Things!  This month's challenge is called It's a Wrap!  We are focusing on creative gift giving solutions.....gift packaging, bows, tags, custom boxes, etc....

Be sure to check the MFT Blog for a list of designers who have creative gift solutions for you today!

I was in need of a small box for a gift and while I had out all of the supplies, made a tag that coordinates!


I made a pizza box using this tutorial on Splitcoaststampers.  These boxes are so simple to make!  The box was cut from Cherry Cobbler cardstock to match the colors in the Simple Stories Twelve Days of Christmas patterned paper.  The poinsettias were made using the Die-namics Upsy Daisy dies.  The sentiment, from Clearly Sentimental About Christmas, was masked so that I could separate the two words.  They were stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink onto a sentiment flag cut using the Die-namics First Place Award Ribbon die. I added some machine stitching and finished each flower/poinsettia with a twine tied button.  If you scroll down, you'll see that I made a belly band to hold the box closed.


Here is a picture of the belly band off of the box:


I used the Die-namics Tag You're It die, along with the Die-namics Upsy Daisy die and the Die-namics Fancy Flourish Die.  The sentiment is from the Christmas Ornaments Die-namics and Stamp Set.  Some checked ribbon, twine and a button finish the tag!


Here are the Die-namics I used:




Well, that's all from me today!  I hope I inspired you to try some creative gift packaging of your own!

Thanks for stopping by!
