Welcome!

My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Tea Box with Mini Notes and a Tag

Good Evening Everyone!


It's the 25th of the month and that means it's time for a Papertrey Ink Blog Hop! Yay! The theme of the hop is quick wraps or tags, so I am showing off one of my Tea Boxes I have made for gift giving this holiday season. I used my Cuttlebug and the Tea for Two set to decorate my box. To keep things simple, I stayed with a monochromatic color scheme of navy and white, which provides a clean , crisp look.


This is the view from the top...




And these are the simple tags I used to complete the wrapping in a simple cello bag. Just a quick stamp, and cut out with my Nesties (Labels 4) and the package is complete!



This photo is the back of the box, showing off the mini-notes and envelopes I included to make this gift more complete. As you can see, they are a simple stamped image on a card that is 3 3/4" x 2 3/4".

I hope this reminds everyone that not every card, wrap or tag has to have tons of layers or embellishments to make a beautiful gift and presentation.


Thanks for hoppin' by!


Details not mentioned above- Paper: Bazill, Ink: Stampin' Up!, ribbon from my supplies
