Gift Packaging

One of my favorite things to do for those little, last minute gifts at this time of year is package up cards that I've made throughout the year.  I do use cards I've made to send through the mail, but unfortunately I don't send out as many cards as I make.  Although, I guess the people who receive a set of cards might not think that's so unfortunate!  LOL  (at least I hope so)  A great way for me to use up my "stash" is to package them up as gifts for teachers, friends or even family members that I don't buy for, but want them to know I'm thinking of them. 

There are many different ways to package up a card set, but one of my favorites is with a clear acrylic box.  When I don't have time to stamp or embellish a cardstock box of some sort, I find that these acrylic boxes are PERFECT!  The card on the inside provides the "decorating".  Adding a ribbon and tag makes it complete.  For this package, I used the Holiday Button Bits set from Papertrey Ink to create my tag and along with the Mat Stack 3 Die.  Being able to add buttons really helps to embellish the package even more.  Thanks for stopping by today and have a great day!

What a nice way to use your cards. I actually made 10 gorgeous cards for my girlfriend this year and in the haste of packing up my stamp room, I accidentally threw them out. Ugh!

This is a terrific if I'd only plan ahead and have cards ready to 'gift' for next Christmas! Love your work!
