Little Gift Packaging

This morning, Trace and I made a whole bunch of these little Play-Dough packs for his pre-school classmates. He was lots of help, stacking up three packs together with glue dots and stamping Warm Wishes on the tags. I wrapped them with a strip of Dashing designer series paper and tied them off with a piece of Old Olive twill ribbon. Used my last of the twill ribbon, too - I didn't have even one tiny piece left! The tags are cut from Real Red, although I see that front one looks very Rose-ish. He can't wait to put one in everyone's cubby at school tomorrow!

For his teachers, we made some Top Note die wraps for a couple of cocoa packages. All you need for each one is three Top Notes die cuts- two Real Red or Glorious Green, and one Very Vanilla. I ran mine through the Big Shot with two sheets of cardstock at a time, cut to 4x5 inches. I used my scissors to cut just inside the perforation lines on the Very Vanilla pieces for the top layer. Then stamped and sponged and tied the ribbon through. (I stacked the three layers for each set together and punched them with the Crop-A-Dile, so all the ribbon holes line up.) Then I tucked two packages of cocoa inside each wrap. The cocoa packages are very light, so I put a small piece of double stick tape to the front of one to tack two of them together. Also, I put a piece of double stick tape on the front and back, so that they stay put inside the Top Note wrap.I'll add a candy cane and a gift card to them on our way out the door in the morning.
