12 Days of Christmas - Day 9 Gorgeous Packaging

If you follow my blog you'll know I'm almost as passionate about the packaging as I am about the gift!   And this year we seem to be luckier than ever with the beautiful products we have on offer in the Holiday catalogue.  Now if you're an Aussie, you may not like the use of the word "Holiday" but it's appropriate because there are products for Halloween, Hannukah, Autumn harvest time and Valentine's Day as well as Christmas.  And they're all on sale until the end of January 2013.

Anyway, back to Day 9 and here's some gorgeous packaging ideas to make your gift stand out under the tree.

 This bag is re-purposed.  It's from one of my local stores.  Not now, it's from me!!  I've used the Comfort Cafe DSP again, added the snow flakes & a gorgeous tag from Tags Till Christmas. 

 Yes, I know the Bashful Blue wide grosgrain is retired, but scratch around in your ribbon scraps and you might be lucky enough to find a piece!

My favourite is definitely this box.  For two reasons; first its re-purposed from Stampin' Up! when it held Watercolour Wonder crayons and second because it's now got one of Felicity's amazing soy candles inside!  Actually, I may have to keep it for myself.  No!  I've already been my own secret Santa....twice! 

I'm lovin' the tulle & the Holiday Frame embossing folder looks amazing on the Top Note.  Yum!  Stamps from Joyeus Celebrations are getting a real work out......

.....and that Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding is a breeze to work with, it's hot glued to the inside of the lid so you don't need to use too much.

Lastly, a CASE from the Holiday catty.  Mine's a little different, but the idea is the same.

Bet you wish you came to class last night now don't you?!  Yep, that was one of the projects.

So, it's the 20th folks, get packing!
Want to see a sneak peek of tomorrow's project......
just kidding!
Pop back then!
