Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Blog-hop-logo


Hello everyone,

Today is the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop and this time Nichole gave us this challenge:-

This month it is all about wrapping it up.  Whether you are preparing early for the holidays or have an upcoming birthday or two, have fun experimenting with fabric & felt packaging ideas.  Use any of our Favor It dies with felt and a little hot glue gun action or stitching.  Use a pretty piece of fabric like you would wrapping paper and make a custom tag to coordinate with it.  Not into sewing or gluing?  Wrap a kitchen towel or cloth napkin around a special bottle of wine and top it off with a hand-stamped gift label.  Or rip a strip of fabric to use in place of ribbon and finish it with a pretty handmade gift card.  There are so many different things to try, you will love experimenting to see what you can come up with!  We look forward to seeing your projects!

I decided to make up a gift package for a friend who likes cooking and wrap a cookbook in a pretty tea towel. Not very original but the best I could come up with


I used the mat stack labels to make a pretty  tag using new leaf ink and dark chocolate card



and then wrapped it up and tied it with coordinating ribbon. I attached a vintage fruit reamer to give a clue as to what is inside.



Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop.

Hugs

  3. I've been hoping to use the tea-towel wrapping idea for my daughter-in-law. Adding a small accessory like you did with the reamer is even better – thanks for the inspiration!

  10. I love the colour scheme of brown and green - the tea towel makes a great 'wrapper' and the ribbon and reamer are great additions. Your tag detail is a pretty finishing touch.
