Packaging with Zoey

4 Comments

Hello lovelies,

guess who is back?! Meee  Zoey of course! Missed me?! I hope so because I surely miss you all so much!

Today I will show you a quick and easy way to package gifts – or anything in general! It really takes little time to make pretty little packaging and I really spent a lot of time on Pinterest before finding the one that filled my needs…and my primary need is: IT HAS TO BE QUICK! Yes I needed to scream that!

I love making little gift for the people that takes my class or simple gifts for when we meet with friends or even some RAK. It makes everyone happy, especially me!

I used for both packaging the same supplies :

Paper (I used pages from an old book) , Written in the Stars stamp set , Hero Arts watercolor wheel, Hero Arts India Ink Black and Hero Arts Twine. (Optional : sewing machine , washi tape)

FIRST IDEA 

I cut two pages from the old book and with my water color wheel I added some blue color to mimic the sky.

NOTE: Since the book paper is really thin you might want to be extra careful when applying the watercolor (unless you add gesso first).
When the paper was completely dry, I stamped the star image, which is one of my favorite, using the India Black ink. I also added some second generation stamp to fill the background without making it too busy.

I stitched the two pages together around the border and I made a small folder. If you do not have the sewing machine, you can use washi tape or you can glue the sides together and then with a pen add some faux stitching.
The sentiment is from the same stamp set and then I closed the little folder with some twine.
Time to make this package: 8 minutes

SECOND IDEA

I cut two pages from the book and again I added some watercolor from the watercolor wheel. I stamped my background Image and then I taped the sides of the two pages together with some washi tape. I folded my bottom part to form a bag and glued two pieces of twine to make the handle.
I made the little cluster and again as my sentiment I used a stamp from the same stamp collection.

Time to make this package: 5 minutes

I really took the time while making it because before I start a mass production I want to be sure 100% that it will not take me too much time!

What do you think!? I hope you will give it a try! Stamps are not only for cards!

  1. Zoey, you always amaze me. I love both of your projects. I want to give both of them a try. I have a couple of old books, I wonder if I will be able to ripe a page out. LOL !! Nicely done.

  2. these are fabulous! I can bet it’ll take me a bit longer–but I love how they look!

  3. What a fabulous way to use your old book pages! I love your stitching and all the details you added to your packaging! Awesome projects, Zoey!
