Super Easy Gift Boxes


Tis the season of gift giving - which also means finding cute gift packaging that's also quick and easy! If you're like me you are probably also stressed for time . . . so I love it when I find packaging that is inexpensive, cute, goes together quickly and lets me be creative! And you'll appreciate this: today's blog hop features lots of ways to offer cute gift packaging so be sure to click through all the links.

Box of Valentine in a Stampin'Up! Acetate Box decorated with images from the Meant To Be Stamp set

My project is this acetate box full of sparkly Valentine cards.  I have a friend who loves to send handmade cards but no longer has the dexterity of hand to make them herself. I'm giving her a set of 6 Valentines packaged in this acetate box decorated with a cute tag and ready for her to send.  I'm thinking she's going to "love" it (pun intended).

Gift Tag decorated with Stampin'UP!'s Detailed Trio Punch and images from the Meant To Be Stamp set

Did you notice the cute image punched in the corner of the tag? That was done with the Detailed Trio Punch (product links below).  Its a super easy way to add some interest to a project.  And the bonus is that the punch does 3 things! It punched that little corner image. It can also round the corners, and it punches an oval hole perfect for the ribbon to go through.

The image stamped on the tag is from a new set called Meant to Be that will be available in the Occasions Catalog in January.

These boxes are so easy.  For only $7.00 you get 10 boxes and they come pre-scored.  All you have to do is fold them, insert your gift and add a cute tag and some ribbon. Voila!

And with only that first card peeking out of the box at you I figured you'd appreciate a sneak peek at the rest of the set.  I'll be featuring each of these cards in future blog posts so be sure to check back again. Here is the link to continue on today's hop.

Nice gift. Like the detail the trio punch gave your tag.

Your box and tag are adorable! I will have to remember them when Valentine's Day gets a little closer.

What great ideas. I have this bundle sitting on my desk and I might use some of your ideas for my stamp club. I haven't used that punch enough!
