Good morning, I am so glad that you stopped by.
As I was not back from my little vacation in time to participate in the introduction of the P is for Presents and Packaging challenge over on the ABC Christmas challenge I have created some midway inspiration to share with you this week.
Using the inspiration photo above the super cute new images of Barry from StampFairy I have created some bright and cheery Christmas packaging for some edible goodies that I will make to give away this year for the holiday season.
I did mention the other day that Barry was bound to become a new favorite of mine. He is just so darn cute. This time I have coloured him up in what just might become his signature colours as I love the way that the red and green really pop. The images have all been embellished with Glossy Accents, Stickles and Liquid Applique before being die cut and framed using Spellbinders dies.
The little gift boxes are actually Chinese take out containers that I picked up at a local storage shop but I have seen similar containers in Michael's. I have kept things really simple to allow the images to really shine as they stand so well on their own and I have only added some ribbon scraps to the handles for embellishment. When I know who the recipients of these little packages will be I will hang a gift tag from the handle as well.
For the wine bottle, I have created the little tag from my own design using my Spellbinders to cut the hole to fit over the neck of the bottle. I have added my image and then finished it off by adding a Hero Arts sentiment to a white stripe below the image. I have finished off the packaging of the bottle by adding a band of matching patterned paper to cover the label and added a ribbon band to embellish.
