Gift Wrapping with Lorena Cantó
Hi everyone! Lorena
here to welcome you to Day 7 of Waffle Flower Crafts Twelve Days of Gift Giving! Hope you’ve enjoyed all the fantastic ideas that have been shared so far.
For today, I have two different projects to share: a Christmas gift box and a decorated mini bag that will be perfect for giving away year round. Let’s get started!
I die cut the box and the side panels with my Silhouette Cameo, but it’s a model simple enough to be easily found on stores like The Container Store, the dollar store, crafting stores and such. Just a plain square gift box.
And now comes the fun part: decorating it! On the panels I stamped the stars cluster from Bowtiful
stamp set in a light mint color and then went in with the holly image from Holiday Labels: Merry
stamp set. I wanted to stamp it in two colors, so I performed a little surgery to the stamp to separate the leaves from the berries. This really fastened the stamping a lot!
Next, I tied jute string around the box and finished it with a tag die cut from patterned paper with Surface – Tag Die – Starter Kit
and the rectangle from Surface – Tag Die – Scallop Add on
. The white embossed sentiment is from A Homemade Christmas
Oh, and as a final touch I added a star die cut from Tiny Star
The second project is a mini bag embellished with a tag.
The round tag with those super cute debossed dots was die cut from Flower Circles
die set and layered on a bit of patterned paper. I’m a woman on a mission to stop hoarding pretty patterned paper…
The Feathered More
stamp set is perfect for personalizing gift tags! I used the “Friend” sentiment, but you also have Mom, Daughter, Sister, Son and Cousin.
I embellished the tag with the Tiny Star
die layered over the Tiny Circle
die and finished it with a couple enamel dots and twine.
There you go! Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you’ll be back tomorrow to find out what the amazing Katie Gehring has created!
