At Christmas there is always the need for gift tags. And Stampin' Up! has all the tools.
I love the new Christmas Tradition Punch.
I created these little gift boxes for all the crafters who came to my Christmas Card Buffet.
The boxes contained a sample of the embellishments in the holiday catalogue, lots of lovely bling.
I designed this project ages ago and I've since seen a lot of Navy in the Christmas Decorations in the shops so I was surprised and pleased that my project seems to be "On Trend" for 2018.
One of the projects at the card buffet was to make a set of gift cards using the Christmas Traditions stamp and punch set in these same colours.
That way at the end of the day they could put the set in the box and regift it - a matching set in a readymade box ready to give away if they wanted to.
The inspiration pic this week is just gorgeous but I do have a confession- I went off on a whim and created the project THINKING I had used the right colours..... turns out I was slightly wrong- well pretty wrong in fact, but at this time of year there is no time to recreate so I'm just going to roll with it. I know you'll forgive me
Keeping the colour palette to only a few shades made it easy to mix and match different images but keep it coordinated ( and Ok I forgot the pink! ...oops)
Each box was tied with a tag and a copper star or snowflake using the Garden green baker's twine.
They put them together using scraps of navy and green. The combinations were all so unique and lovely. Here's a few samples I had put together as ideas using some of the embellishments from their gift.
and here's a few snaps from the day... I feel bad that there aren't even any Christmas decorations up for the day. This year has been a challenge to just get organised to be at events - hopefully 2019 will see a return to regular crafting, with a little more zing!

Next on the hop this week is the amazing Lou you're going to love her project- AND she used all the right colours!
I hope you have a creative week and remember,
"don't just post online,
post something pretty!"
