It's a Creation Station Wrap Up!

Oh don't get me wrong, we are not wrapping up the Creation Station Blog Hops.  As a Design Team we're wrapping up gifts for the season and sharing our pretty packages with you.
 In the Holiday Catalog you can find White Gift Boxes that are food safe and come with acetate sleeves that give a great glimmering shine and finish to each box.
 For this box the star of the show is the adorable poofy bow.  It's quite simple to make.  It's three circles that are folded and clipped and then fastened together.  Later in the week I will have photo tutorial to show you exactly how to make them.

I used the Lots of Labels Framelits to cut the tag for the box which I stamped with the Peaceful Pines set.  I actually love all the glimmer paper.  In small bits I think it works and since it's the Holidays a bit more sparkle is totally okay ;0) 
 A trio of banner tags are perfect for decorating the Petite Cafe Bags.  I cut 2" wide strips of Warmth and Cheer DSP and Very Vanilla card stock which I notched out with the Triple Banner Punch.  For the gift tag I stamped the "happy heart" image from the Suite Seasons stamp set which I inked up with Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Write Markers.
 The Petite Cafe Bags in the Annual Catalog are super cool.  They have a coated lining that is perfect for cookies or goodies.  My favorite part of my decorated bag is the bow.  Want to make one?  They are super easy.  Just cut six to eight 3 1/2" to 4" pieces of ribbon in a variety of colors and styles and tie them together.  To give this bow a bit more visual scale I added a crumpled doily and a Cherry Cobbler oval.
Thanks a bunch for stopping by to check out a few packaging ideas.  For me shopping for gifts is fun, but wrapping them and making them all jazzed up and pretty is what I love best.  Your next stop along the hop with with Denita.  She has some seriously awesome stampin' skills--enjoy!

Click directly on Denita's name below for the link to work. 
For some reason I cannot get the button to work.  I have tried five times, deleting and starting over, but it just won't work.  So, click on her name not on the "next" button and you will get there!



  1. I can't tell you how much I love your designer paper bow!

  2. Great projects Elizabeth. I really like the poofy bow and can't wait to see your instructions for it. The tip on combining the ribbons with the crumpled doily and oval were great too. Thanks for sharing, these are all wonderful!.

  3. Your cute packages are gorgeous, Elizabeth! I love the White Gift Boxes and Cafe Bags for instant packaging, and your 'jazzing up' is amazing. D ♡
