You should have arrived here from, CoolbeansbyLB , which is the start of the blog hop.
Here are a few different gift wraps I have made lately for special events:
There is one thing I am always needing when a birthday rolls around and that is a gift bag for the present. I like to stock up on plain colored bags in bulk from local craft store and keep on hand to create a unique gift back to fit the occassion and person. Most of the time I use my Cricut to make adorable die cuts in birthday themes.
All the designs for this project were created using the Cricut Birthday Bash cartridge. The big birthday cake on the bag was cut at 7 inches, the yellow cake base cardstock was embossed with the Cuttlebug, and I added some yummy frosting using Martha Stewart chunky white glitter. I even used foam dots to pop-up the birthday word.
Here is a close up so you can see the details better.
I also like to personalize the gift bag with a monogram, like I did here for graduation presents for a couple of special friends daughter's high school graduation. I used the colors of the college they would be going to in the fall as inspiration...they loved them !
But I don't stop at just making gift bags...I LOVE to make pillow boxes for gifts too.
I recently went to a wedding and made this as a bridal luncheon gift holder. The bride thought it was so pretty she didn't even want to open it to see the handmade cards that were the gift inside.
I made the box out of a shiny cardstock that I don't remember the name of but have had laying around for a long time by using a template. Then added ribbon trim to the edges. For the tag, I glimmer misted a manila tag, punched the edges with my Fiskars Apron lace punch. Stamped a frame and hand lettered the brides name. And then added a Prima flower that I glimmer misted in pearl. I tied it onto the package with some sheer ribbon.
