Hi Stamping Friends!

It's Sunday Showcase time!  This week, I'm featuring some cute ways to package up small gifts and treats courtesy of my stamping friends!  Let's go!

Ronda - bright take out box copy  

Project from Ronda Wade's Creative Convention.

#1 Got homemade holiday treats to share?  Package them in this 3-1/2" x 4-1/4" x 2-1/2" kraft Takeout Box!  You get 6 for just $5.95! TIP: It's food-safe, but I would line it with wax paper to prevent grease stains from seeping through and keep the treats from sticking to the box. 

Ronda - bright take out box 2 copy 

It's decorated with a Deco Labels Framelits layer die-cut from the All Is Calm Designer Series Paper.  On top of that is a 2-1/2" Circle Punch of Lost Lagoon, stamped in the same color with the Bright & Beautiful (wood) star.  And, the Merry Everything (wood) sentiment is punched with the Note Tag Punch

Also features: Cherry Cobbler Sheer Linen Ribbon, Lost Lagoon Stitched Satin Ribbon, All Is Calm Snowflake Embellishment.

Janet - confetti stars packing tape copy

#5 A few weeks back, I had asked my Facebook followers what I could do with all of the teeny tiny stars leftovers from punching with the Confetti Stars Border Punch.  Janet Shinn came up with a clever idea!  She sprinkled the stars over the sticky side of a strip of packing tape, then adhered it to a package wrapped in Festive Designer Kraft Paper Rolls.  What a fun and festive way to decorate a plain package!

Peggy - trim the tree gift bags copy

#6 & #7 Peggy used a variety of Holiday Catalog items to decorate the fronts of plain mini gift bags.  She covered the bags with Trim The Tree Designer Series Paper Stack paper to start.  The first bag features coffee cups from the Perfect Blend (wood) stamp set, with paper piecing from Trim The Tree paper.  The second has stamping with the Ornamental Pine (wood) stamp set. The handles are tied with some Early Espresso Baker's Twine.

#8 Another mini white gift bag decorated by Peggy.  The Artisan Punch had has a Modern Label Punch brim and is accented with a Silver Glimmer Paper flower from the retired Itty Bitty Punch Pack.  The eyes are punched with the Owl Punch, and the nose is a hand-trimmed Word Window punched shape.

#9 Peggy made another cute mini gift bag, this time with a Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer face!  The antlers are Early Espresso card stock die-cut with the Autumn Accents Bigz Die.  The ears are cut from Large Oval Punch shapes.  The eyes are Whisper White 3/4" Circle punches and Basic Black 1/2" Circle punches.  The nose is a Cherry Cobbler 1" Circle punch with a Red Glimmer Paper 3/4" Circle punch.
