I'm so excited to be participating in an Extra Special Black Friday Blog Hop courtesy of Taylored Expressions!! If you just stumbled across my blog, be sure to check out the entire list of Hop participants at the end of this post (believe me, it'll be worth the effort!!).
Taylor challenged a group of stampers (including little 'ole me - I'm soooo honored to be included in this amazing group of talent!!) to decorate the TE Perfect Package to hold a set of cards or use it to wrap a gift we'll be giving this season!
I created a Hybrid Holiday Gift box to hold a pair of Gnome Name Bubble Bars for my Mom from my favorite Organic Bath store, Lush. (If you're not familiar with Lush, check it out - they're AWESOME - and all of their products are 100% vegetarian and 60% organic and never tested on animals). Here's a look at the box:I used the Wings of Joy stamp set, colored with Copics, to create the focal image on the box top and added some red pom-pom fringe around the edge.
The DP is printed digi paper from the Checkin It Twice digi kit by Dani Mogstad (Sweet Shoppe).
You can see that I decorated the inside of the box as well, added some recycled filler, and simply laid my bubble bars directly inside the box. A ribbon tab makes it easy for my Mom to open it up this Christmas and the bars are all ready to be enjoyed!! (and this way, I can easily sneak a smell of those yummy bars anytime I want between now and then since the box is held closed with a magnet!!).
So what do you think? Want some more fun ideas for these super versatile Perfect Packages? Here's a list of all of the participants in our Black Friday Blog Hop:
