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.

Perfect Packaging

Good Morning!

I hope everyone reading this has started their Christmas shopping by now, because there are only 11 days until Christmas morning! Unbelievable!

With that frightening, I mean happy, thought in mind, I'm excited about bringing you some attractive and inexpensive packaging using some of the products from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.

This first item is a little box just the right size for treats. It's a pizza box design, I just modified it so that the top and bottom would fit the Curved Rectangles die from my Nestabilites. To decorate it I used the Winter Printables set, added a bow and a...
gift card! It fits perfectly...I love that the recipient will have a gift to open, rather than the more typical envelope that these may come in.

In an earlier post here, I mentioned making some dish soap as Christmas gifts this year. I'm looking forward to giving these small gifts away, but I was concerned about the packaging. Even at the dollar store a small bag is, well a dollar, which significantly adds to the cost of the "small, inexpensive gift".

So, I bought a package of these small bags (40 count) at the craft store for a little over $2.00,

they just aren't so attractive all by themselves...

So, with a little more help from the Winter Printables set, I made this cute holiday bag...

This put me on a roll. Using the snowflake folder, I decided to run the bag through my Cuttlebug and give the bag some texture. Then I used an image from the Warm Winter set, and closed it up with a ribbon.

I haven't even mentioned the best part...Lindsay's Stamp Stuff is having a sale until December 23rd! Buy 2, get 1 free!

Just order your 2 sets, then when you checkout, type the set you want for free in the customer comment box. The 2 purchased sets and the free set must all be from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff at My Grafico.

Gotta love a deal!
