Holiday Packaging Tutorial

Hi there!

I have a new tutorial up on the ScrapMuch? site and you know how I love to share them here too!


I love to use up my extra bits and bobs for various scrappy projects on my gift packaging, so I thought I would share a couple with you.


Some may think it boring, but I love to wrap my holiday packages in plain kraft paper.  I personally really love the look, plus I like that it doesn't make my room look cluttered like it can with lots of gift wrap.  Though I must admit I do love pretty papers.  Of course, you can you this tip to coordinate with any wrapping you use.


Haul out your supplies, some white glue, a paint brush, glitter and chipboard alphas (I know you have a stash) to start.


 Paint the chipboard with glue and add some glitter, super quick and esy but oh so pretty.


Now for a little more fun factor, do you have a drawer like this?  My scrappy 'junk' drawer holds left over bits and pieces from die cut sheets, extra little embellies or die cuts  from I have made too many.  This is the perfect opportunity to use them up.


I had a little die cut doily from who knows when and some die cut trees from making Christmas cards, they both layered nicely with my glittered letter.


For this one, I pulled out a couple of die cut tags and added a couple of stamped paw prints.  This gift is for my youngest, from his puppies.


And here are my newly wrapped packages under my tree.

Thanks for visiting!
