Just sharing a few vintage items I created for workshop hostesses and lucky door prizes recently. I always say that it’s ALL about the packaging……it doesn’t really matter what is inside the box or bag if it looks as pretty as these ….wouldn’t you agree?
Along the same theme, I designed a Make-n-Take for a hostess recently who requested that I demonstrate a vintage style gift wrapping idea (yes I do take requests!)……here’s what I came up with :
The bag is made out of a Crumb Cake envelope, stamped in the I Love Lace background stamp in Gold Encore Ink……can you get any more vintage than gold on crumbcake? 😉
Here’s the box version…….
To reinforce the Spiral Flower I cut a second flower out of the die in Basic Black card stock at the same time as cutting the Typeset Paper before rolling them both around my Paper Piercer to create the flower.
Here’s a list of what I’ve used to create the projects above, all available in my Online Store where you can search for each item by the code or description to add it to your cart :
