Christmas….It’s in the Bag! by Scarlett

by admin

Hey Y’all, Scarlett here today hoping to help get you in the spirit of the season and ready for gift giving.

I think my favorite part of gift giving, aside from seeing the recipient’s reaction, is the packaging. I delight in brown paper bases, like the above gift sacks, all decked out for whatever season or reason.

Simple stenciling (Random Dots stencil with heavy gesso) and embossing using the small stars from the new Doodled Star stamp created a quick and fun background.

The large Doodled Star stamp is the eye catcher of the bag. I love how it  draws you right in. For this embellishment I stamped the large star with VersaMark onto some sticky back canvas and embossed. The color came out a wee bit different than I imagined but I do like that it appears gold-ish.

One of my favorite ScrapFX releases from Christmas past are the Christmas Stars shown twinkling above. I can’t help but get thoughts of the Christmas story when I see these stars and place them on projects. It’s a fab bonus they can be used for every day type projects as well. 😉

The first set of bags are for the youngsters on my list, my thought was the not so youngsters 😉 would enjoy traditional as much as I do when it comes to Christmas.

Same procedures for these bags, just different papers/colors. This is my trick for packaging: produce in small batches, or large if you have that type of attention span LOL. Seriously though, I do tend to get bored with mass production but setting up groups of three or four seems to work for me to get projects pumped out.

One of the gifts that will be going into some of those bags is farm made soap! I use our farm products to create nourishing, natural skin products and of course they need to be pretty, though I must admit I do love looking at a beautiful bar of naked soap – ha!

This goat milk soap looks mighty cute all decked out for Christmas don’t you think? The new Decorative trees are an adorable little accent.

I am super pleased to have a jump start on my packaging needs for the season, I may or may not be a last minute wrapper. 😀 Hopefully you’ll have some inspiration and motivation to do the same!

Take Care!! xx
