DeNami December Blog Hop - Pretty Packaging!!!

Hello to all!  It's time for another fabulous DeNami blog hop!  This month is all about perfect packaging!!!!  I don't normally make my own packaging, so this sure was a fun challenge for me!!!
If you are just stumbling on this blog hop right now, head back HERE to start from the beginning!  If you've been hopping along you should have come here from the amazing blog of my sweet and crafty friend Emily Keaton!!! Her projects are always so fabulous!!!  Don't forget to leave a comment on each blog for a chance to win a $20 DeNami gift certificate!  =)

So today I wanted to make two different types of packaging: a decorated box and a gift bag!  I also made gift tags to go with each project:


The box was my first project!  I started with a plain kraft box, and decorated the top by stamping that cute DeNami tree on it and then using different types of stickles and glitter/quickie glue pen combos to bling up the trees!  Here's the box before I wrapped it: 

Then I added some festive ribbon and a gift tag: 

 ... and voila!  I really love how this one turned out!  I always need little boxes like this for all of the Christmas goodies I buy!  =)  And now onto the gift bag!  

I used a combination of washi tape, ribbon, stamps, and scor-tape/glitter to create the bag:  
 
I really like how the gift tag for this one turned out too: 

Well, I hope I gave you some inspiration for the upcoming holiday season!  I know that I sure had fun making all of these projects!

Let's get you hopping along!  Next up on the hop is lovely Wendy Harrill and I'm sure she has something absolutely fabulous lined up for you!!!  Happy hopping everyone!

Learn the laws you have to take note of, know the holidays, bonuses and all the issues associated with becoming an employer. On the bright side, consider this as an addition to your knowledge bank because you are willing to take a chance.seo company
