Quick & Easy Christmas packaging.

Up today are a couple more quick and crafty packages I put together towards my goal this Christmas of getting as many gifts as I could wrapped in some sort of crafty way.  I made a lot of gift tags, I made a lot of big bows to go on packages, and I used patterned paper as wrapping paper.

If you’ve learned nothing else about me from coming to my blog, you must know that I’m cheap.  Like really cheap.  So it shouldn’t surprise you that I bought my kids some Groupons for Christmas.  $6.50 to an ice cream/candy shoppe and I only had to pay $3 each – score!  The gift itself is just a piece of paper.  So I packaged them up all craftylike in a glassine bag from my shoppe and then topped it with a large image from Riddersholm Design papers, and then got lots of pretty texture with May Arts ribbons (sheer box pleats and  elastic plaid ruffle).

    Very beautiful. Love the ribbon & lace as well as the embellishments. I hope your kids appreciate them. Much to pretty to give to kids.

    Maybe cheap, but still utterly chic! 😉 Gorgeous, just gorgeous I say! That gigham ribbon flounce is the best. Amazing stuff Michelle.
