on the sixth day of Christmas

Something a little different for the sixth day of Christmas - some super easy but really cute packaging.  All in all this took me less than 5 mins to make and I love how awesome it looks.  You could easily put a jumbo cupcake inside, some cookies or some other kind of small gift.  I love that it looks so professionally wrapped but it was still made by hand - with a little help from some tools.

I used the gift box punch to make the box.  I love love love this punch as it makes boxes up to just over 10cm on each side.  Think of how many things you make boxes for.  And it's super easy to use.  For the bow I used the Big Shot gift bow die.  A little glue to assemble things and you have perfectly professional packaging.  

I'm super excited to make some holiday gifts this year and create perfect packaging like this to give them away.  The best thing about this idea?  You can use it all year round.  Just pick the appropriate colours and you could use this for birthdays, thank you gifts, just because, weddings - anything really.  And you can even make your packaging coordinate with your card - how good is that.  Love it when the outside of the gift looks as good as the inside.  To get started on your perfect packaging order the gift box punch board online.
