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 :
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
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
What do you think!? I hope you will give it a try! Stamps are not only for cards!
Before I go let me just quickly remind you few things…
