Caardvarks Holiday Hop: Pretty Packaging!

Welcome to day two of the fabulous Caardvarks Holiday blog hop. The theme is pretty packaging and it is sponsored by Creative Cuts and More, a leader in die cuts. If you came here from Lila’s blog you are in the right place but if you landed here first be sure to start at the Caardvarks blog so you don’t miss out on an exclusive CC&M coupon and your chance to win some great die cuts, this is a 3-day hop with a prize each day and lots of holiday inspiration.Ā  Without further ado here are my quick and easy holiday wraps:

I used the mug card, crayon box and short puff box for these and there are so many uses for them. they will each hold a gift card beautifully but Imagine the acetate puff box filled with chocolate covered cranberries, the mug filled with hot cocoa packets and candy canes and the crayon box filled with a mini note pad and crayons to entertain the youngins’ during a trip to grandmas! Another thing I love is how these sturdy boxes can be reused. Fill them with sweet treats for a friend then they can eat the sweets and tuck a gift card in and pass it on…I’m dreaming of a green Christmas šŸ˜‰

Cocoa Packet Holder: Stamps: Stampin Up (stamp wheels), Inque Boutique/Darice: Label

For the cocoa packet holder I assembled the card with tape then used a stamp wheel to “pattern” my card base. I used chalk to color the images then I stamped the label on cream and adhered it over a ribbon with foam tape and stuck in a decorative spray.

For the crayon box I stamped a flourish and heat embossed it in white, tied on a ribbon and added the label, quick and easy!

This was the easiest of all, assemble the box with double stick tape, wrap with a strip of paper and tie on a bow and glue on some dew drops!
