Inky Friends: Presenting the Gifts: Hang Your Stocking

Image may contain: text

Welcome to another Inky Friends blog hop! These are so much fun! The theme for this months hop is gift packaging. How fun to make each gift something special.  If you are hopping in order, you came to me from Lily's Ink Pad where Sara used Snow Sentiments. You may be going backwards and found me from Stamp a Little Longer and Twila using Smitten Mittens to create some great packaging! Either way, you are here to see what I did with Hang Your Stocking.

My first item is a little gift bag. I used the Gift Bag Punch Board to make a medium sized bag. I didn't use the holes to string the top of the bag but added an extra score mark and folded my paper over the top of the bag to see the other side of the paper. I really like the font for this Merry Christmas stamp.

My second project is a little candy holder. I have a Peppermint Patty in mine but it will hold most fun sized candies. These would be fun to make and give to co-workers. Just something little!

This last project was more of a challenge for me. We don't do tags on our Christmas presents at my house. We have 4 daughters and a son-in-law. With 7 sets of gifts under the tree, that's a lot of tags! We have been wrapping each person's gifts in one type of wrapping paper. I wrap the gifts early and place them under the tree. No one knows what paper is theirs until we start opening. I love listening to the girls argue about who's paper is whose! The tree is pretty too because there is so many types of paper under the tree!

Anyway, I did makes some simple tags and a little holder for them! I think they turned out cute. I should use these for the extended families gifts...hmm...Here they are in their box.

Here's a picture of the tags laid out.

That's it for me! I did get a scrapbook page made with this set as well as Wise Men from Afar (last month's hop set). I am going to be posting these sets of pages this week (I hope!). Come back and check them out!

Now you are off to see what Twila or Sara created!
