Echo Park Paper: The Cookies Were Hung by the Chimney with Care

Delivering delicious, homemade treats to neighbors and friends is one of those iconic holiday traditions that I adore. If you are going to take the time to take a treat, why not package them in an adorable way while you are at it?!

I used the Dk. Blue/Gold Solid Paper for the bottom of the box, and then created the top with patterned papers from the Volume 2 Collection.
The window allows a peek inside to the homemade goodies. You can use several types of materials for the window; re-purposed clear packaging, a sheet protector, or a transparency. I chose to use a heavy-weight clear presentation report cover. These can be purchased at your local office supply or copy store.

The top of the stocking is decorated with die cuts from the Ephemera and Frames & Tags Ephemera packs. I also used the Jolly Branch Trio Die set to cut several pine branches from a green 6×6 patterned paper. They look so festive mixed in with the poinsettia and greenery handcut from the Berry Christmas paper.

The die cuts have added dimension with a few of the small chipboard word stickers and the shiny enamel dots. The gold glitter enamel dot made the perfect flower center for the poinsettia!

At the bottom of the stocking I created a pennant strip from 6×6 patterned papers to anchor the “Noel” chipboard piece. A couple of handcut pinecones from the Berry Christmas paper are the perfect accents!

Everyone loves homebaked goods during the holidays! This stocking box would be the perfect way to deliver them. I hope you feel inspired to create your own holiday treat packaging!

Echo Park Paper: Pumpkin Muffin Tote

Happy Fall, friends! The minute the weather turns cool my family and I start craving pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. We always make several batches; some of the batches are for us to eat, but then we also like to make additional batches to take to our friends in the neighborhood.

This year I used the A Perfect Autumn collection by Echo Park Paper to create a darling tote to package up our muffins. The tote fits 9 muffins stacked in three rows inside a cellophane bag perfectly, and is sooo much cuter than a zip-top bag!

I created a tag for this bag by trimming one of the 3×4 Journaling Cards to a smaller size. I then notched the top two corners to create a tag shape.

These would be so easy to make ahead of time to have on hand. I used three different patterned papers for my totes and then used the Leaves & Acorn Die Set and the Carta Bella Hello Fall Layered Pumpkin Die Set to decorate the front.

I varied each bag a bit by using different tags and elements to accent the die cut pumpkins and leaves. On the polka dotted bag, I fussy-cut the word “FALL” from one of the 3×4 cut apart Journaling Cards.

Next, I added the squirrel and leaf sticker from the Element Stickers. I used a small chipboard circle with an acorn to accent the squirrel and added a sprinkling of brads above his head for some dimension.

The orange gingham bag is decorated with several more Element Stickers clustered together. I then added the Fox tag from the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack to the handle.

Spellbinders: Quick Gift with Handmade Fall Flowers

I needed a quick gift to take to several people as a THANK YOU for helping me out with a church event. I purchased some beautiful, pumpkin-scented candles and then decorated them with a brown, satin ribbon bow and a beautiful, die-cut flower.

I used two shades of orange cardstock and the Spellbinders Textured Flowers dies the Platinum 6 Die Cutting Machine to create the flowers. The leaves are cut from Carta Bella Classic Green Shimmer Cardstock.

These dies are GORGEOUS!!! I love that the petals and leaves have elegant line details … so different than just a plain die! Love that!

I love when I can use my craft supplies to dress up an everyday object. Try adding a handmade flower to the next gift you give to kick it up a notch! It definitely adds that special, custom touch!

Echo Park Paper: Wicked & Witch-y Gift Box

I’m always on the look out for fun ways to give a gift to someone … and this witch’s boot is what I have up my sleeve for this coming Halloween. Inspired by the spooky framed witches from the Carta Bella Haunted House collection, I couldn’t wait to put this one together!

I used the Ghastly Words paper with the spiderwebs for the main body of the boot and then added in pops of color with the Mad Scientist’s Laboratory (orange) and Haunted Hats Paper (purple diamonds) on the top of the shoe. A fluffy green ribbon ties the shoe closed and adds yet another pop of fun color!

I wanted the sole of the shoe to really stand out, so I chose to cut it using the Halloween Letters paper with it’s fun multi-colored stripes!
The heel of this shoe is so sexy with it’s tantalizing curves! It looks great in the purple diamond of the Haunted Hats paper.
The heel accent is cut from the orange Mad Scientist’s Laboratory paper and receives some dimensional detail with a series of black, glittery mini brads.

I cut the witch frame from the Portrait Gallery Paper to use as the main decorative element on this boot. The broom, crow, potion bottle, bats, and Trick or Treat stickers from the Sticker Sheet really add a festive flair.
