CTC#155 Gift packaging - one of my favourite things!

Welcome back for CTC#155
I just love gift wrapping.

A little while ago I had a few years away from nursing and worked in a gourmet food and giftware shop. We used to make and wrap loads of hampers and gifts. I learnt a lot from my good friend Deanne, and my favourite thing was wrapping wedding presents.

Stampin' Up! offers so many options for gift wrapping that I just couldn't miss out on this week's challenge.

I have taken inspiration from lots of the packaging samples in the catalogues but my main focus is from page 56 in the Annual Catalogue where they have used the Memories and More cards from the Petal Garden Suite as part of the decoration to the front of a box,with ribbon wrapped twice around and secured with a mini bulldog clip.

I needed a few gifts this week and already had the packs of cards made, so I quickly made up a box from Cardstock , wrapped some ribbon around and pinned on a few cards with some ribbon and mini sequin trim. I sealed the top of the box with the brilliant wide washi from the black and white pack, and made a quick 3x3 card to go with them.

The second in a different colourway, you can see the little  matching gift card up to the right.

Both packs sealed with washi.

Next on the hop this week is the lovely Rebecca

I hope you have fun with your Christmas wtapping this year, and that you find some inspiration in the catalogue.
 I can highly recommend the memories and more cards as a great impact piece.

have a creative week, Liz
