Pretty Cute Packaging!

Look what's under the tree! Have you noticed those little craft-colored fold-up boxes in the holiday mini catalog? They are one of my current favorite products! They are just the right size for a stack of gourmet cookies or homemade candies, 4 scented votives, a squatty jar of preserves, and... But wait! I can't tell you yet what's in mine, it's top secret!! But I WILL tell you how I put together the wrap.

Fold up one of those cute little boxes (they come 4/pack for less than $1 each). Cut a 2x12" strip of card stock and wrap around the box (won't quite meet on the bottom, but who's looking?!). Rip a strip of fabric 1" wide and tie around the box with a double knot (this happens to be from our holiday set so it coordinates perfectly with the DSP I used on the tags). Stamp your sentiment and punch out w/ the 2 3/8" scallop circle punch; sponge edges. Punch out a background circle of DSP with the 2 1/2" circle punch. Glue these two together, then punch a 1/8" hole at the top. Thread a double thickness of baker's twine through the hole, and tie onto the fabric knot.

Ta Da! Super simple. Don't you wish all your gift wrapping could be so painless?
