At this time of the year, it's all about gift giving.  There's something about Christmas that just wants to make you give gifts, well it does for me. 

So when I have orders or loyalty reward gifts to deliver, well they just need to be packaged and made pretty.  I always try to do something different, and make each one unique!!  So here's a few of my recent packaging ideas:

Rosettes are a wonderful way to decorate your gifts.  I added this rosette to the front of a boring plain kraft gift bag.  Just by adding a rosette on top of a doily just made it so much better!!  I also tied a bit of matching ribbon around the handles (not shown in this pic).

I've also used a rosette (using same papers, stamped images) and layered it on top of a hand made gift box.  I've embossed the box top and used vintage lace and seam binding for embellishment.  So pretty!!  I love the butterfly from the Creative Elements stamp set, one of my favourites!!  This box is perfect for packaging gifts!

This kraft gift bag has been covered with a doily folded in half.  I've added a white tag and bakers twine to add some bright colour.  I love Melon Mambo, it's such a pretty pink and I used it to stamp my thanks.  And of course, I just had to add a glittery star!!

See!  So much better than a boring brown bag.  So what can you do to make your packaging pretty!
