Make your gifts look good


Have you noticed that gift packaging is getting better and better all of the time?  I f you treasure someone enough to give them a gift then it makes sense to put it in something special so that the person that you give it to knows right from the start that you made it for them with love.

So, today, I made a gift box and decorated it to show how much I like the person and the gift inside it.


A few posts back I showed you how to make a gift package and this time I used that method to make a box in red card.

The ribbon that I used was:
The red red rose was:

Lace Trinket Jar



I though that I would use some of the beautiful really wide lace that we stock on the Craft Fairy site for today's project. It comes in two colours, but this time I chose the ivory lace as I wanted to make something that would be soft.

What I made was this trinket jar. It is decorated with a ribbon flower and the instructions for making one can be fould on this link.


What you will need are:

Scalloped Lace, 22 cm wide - Ivory
Wired Ribbons
an old clean jar
double sided tape
double sided foam pads
a ribbon flower that you can see on this link:

Cut the lace so that it is the same height as the jar and wide enough to wrap around the jar with about half an inch of overlap.
 Put a piece of double sided tape along the lenght of one side of the jar and another around the outside of the mouth of the jar. You will need another piece inside the mouth of the jar.

Stick the lace to the jar. Use another piece of tape to stick down the overlap.


 Stick the ribbon to the outside of the mouth of the jar and then fold over and stick to the inside.

 Now, stick the flower to the side of the jar and you've finished.

Pull Treat for Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and, while we want that special gift from the one that we love, we also want it to be beautifully packaged. So here is an idea for making the packaging look superb and the treat inside it will seem so much better too!


This pretty pink package is made with:

a heart die cut

pink calligraphy pens
9mm pink saddle stitch ribbon
3mm saddle stitch ribbon
a sheet of heavy paper
1 sheet of medium weight card
1 flat gift

The tutorial for making this gift wrap is to be found on splitcoast stampers resource page. The flower making and pen blending technique can be seen here.

Once you have mastered the technique you can make the package bigger or smaller to suit the gift. I would love to receive this. Now, how can I persuade my husband to make it? I'll let you know if I'm successful
