Christmas Packaging Ideas

Just wanted to post some simple packaging ideas.  For these I used Limited Edition Holiday Twine, Red and White Polka Dot Washi Tape and Christmas Tree Tape.  The yummy white chocolate covered Oreos and mini sugar cookies I got from Red Rose Confections!  My kids love her sugar cookies!  And the Oreos will be their little treat tonight!

A Thanksgiving Treat

I can only imagine how tough having Celiac must be, especially for a little kid.  One of our nephews has it, and it's a little saddening to watch all the kids grab a snack or dessert that he can't have.  I was so happy to have found The Realist Mermaid recently who makes gluten free treats!  I bought some yummy chocolate grahams and vanilla bean marshmallows for the kids to share.  I decided to make each their own little box.

The treat boxes were quick and easy to make.  I just used a Mini Gable Box, a few solid washi tapes, a mini circle punch, letter rubber stamps and an ink pad.  I stamped each name on the washi tape, and wrapped the tape around the box.  I then used a circle punch to punch out washi tape circles.  I found the easiest way to do this was to place the tape on a piece of cardstock, then punch out the circles.  Since the washi tape is repositionable. it was easy to remove the circles from the cardstock.  Then I randomly placed the circles around the box.  A quick and easy little treat box!  I of course had to sneak a few marshmallows and chocolate grahams while I was doing this and they are so yummy!

Customized Binder with Washi Tape

I seem to find myself using Washi Tape on just about everything these days!  Scrapbooks, cards, packages, etc.  You can pretty much add your own style to anything with it.  I recently purchased a handmade half size binder and printable planner (yes, even in this day and age, I'm still a pen and paper girl!) from Bubbo-Tubbo on Etsy.  I decided to brighten it up with some washi tape and one of my labels.

I used pink, green and brown washi tape to match my logo

I wrapped the entire cover in the tape and placed my label in the center (my labels were made by Kitty Crossbones...she does awesome work!)

This is the inside...I cut the washi tape in different lengths and let it hang over

I also used the tape to label my dividers on the inside
