Christmas Around the World DSP and the Lots to Love Box

I found these cute little chocolate Santas and knew I had to package them up using the Lots to Love Box framelits.

Isn't he so cute?  I love how Santa looks like he is wishing you a Happy Christmas.  I had to play around with the placement of the dies to make sure the speech bubble lined up with Santa.  The DSP I used is  Christmas Around the World and it is full of plaids and happy designs.  It is hard for me to decide which side of the paper to use.

The Lots to Love Box Framelit Dies

I am more or less done with my Christmas shopping, cards and best of all mailing!  Yesterday I went to the Post Office and it was busy but I really did not have to wait very long.  I am just so happy that I got it done!  What does this have to do with the Lots of Love Box dies?  Here's a very little something I gave to the person who helped me at the counter.

I used the Lots to Love Box dies to make this cute little box.  The box comes together quickly and it's a cute way to give a little gift.  After the Post Office I went to the store to see what other little goodies I could find to package up.  I will share those soon.

Here's another idea of how to use the framelits.  I cut down the box to fit these tea bags.  Isn't the Christmas Around the World DSP just perfect for these tea bags?  The box holds about 3 tea bags and I am making more of these.   I may just be a little obsessed with this little box and what it can hold.  I will be sharing more ideas on my Facebook page so be sure to follow me there too.

Quick and Easy Treat Box

I love the Acetate Card boxes that are in the Holiday catalog.   They are great for packaging up cards and treats too.  I found these little candy bars that were all dressed up for Halloween.  I wanted them to stay upright and organized in the box so I placed them in the 2" x 8" cello bags and then into the acetate card box.  To make the little gift even more festive I made a belly band using the images from the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper. Did you know that the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlit Dies cut out the pumpkins featured on the Spooky Night DSP?  Isn't that awesome?!  I love how there is so much coordination between the products in the Holiday catalog.  I also used the Cat punch to punch out the cats that are also on the Spooky Night DSP.  The sentiment is from the Spooky Cat stamp set.

Beverage Bar Cheers

It's another late night posting!   I am always picking up something here and there that I think will make a cute project.  Can you guess what I picked up and packaged?

AstheInkDriesBeverageBarbag

I used the Beverage Bar stamp set for the cute glasses and sentiment.  No, there isn't a bottle of champagne in the bag.

I never knew there was such a thing as champagne gum!  I tried to mimic the image on the package and used Pink Pirouette and So Saffron ink.   I added some Fine-Tip glue to make the contents look more like liquid.  The Striped Treat Bags are very pretty and shiny.  It doesn't take much to create some pretty packaging when you start with such a beautiful bag.   The bags are also food safe.  

Add some Striped Treat Bags to your next order and you will always be ready to create some pretty packaging!
