I'm so happy to be here visiting with you all today and sharing a couple of sweet gifts I made using some of the brand *new* goodies released TODAY over at My Time Made Easy!!! Let's get started with the peeks, shall we ...
Introducing Wine & Dine!
I used this new template to make two gift sets -- one geared masculine in silver and gold and one a bit more feminine with a pretty paper poinsettia on top!
The template itself came together in less than five minutes ... it's got to be one of the easiest to assemble -- a tall box, 1, 2, 3, done! I used some papers from the Homemade Holiday collection for the top of the box and then adhered a stunning silver bow and a couple of gold glittered pine cones! The tag was stamped using a sentiment from the Secret Santa set and then gold glitter glass was added to the edges of the tag to coordinate with the bobble on top of the box!
And you can see I paired by gift box and tag with my favorite wine with a special holiday edition Santa Claus label - Duplin Red ... made and bottled right here in NC about a hour from my home!
The slightly more feminine gift was made using some patterned paper from the Tis' The Season collection (I could just eat all of those adorable polka dots sprinkled between the blooms) ... and the tag couldn't be any easier -- another paper from this collection was cut into a tag shape and adhered on top of the box with some red & white baker's twine! The gorgeous poinsettia was cut using the Perfect Poinsettia cut file, embossed with a Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, inked lightly with white pain and then three gold glittered berries were added to the middle for some sparkle and shine! I added a couple of white glittered chipboard holly leaves to complete the holiday bloom ... what do you think? Really pretty, huh??!!
This template is a 'must have' for all the parties and gatherings you'll be attending this holiday season! I never go anywhere to a party or function empty handed and wine is the perfect bring along thank you gift for your host! Your friends will be so impressed when you show up with a bottle of wine wrapped so lovely in one of these gorgeous boxes ... and then you can tell them you made it yourself!!
So pretty ... I'm in love with this versatile and fun template! And ... it's not 'just for the holidays' either! This template will allow you to put a special touch on your hostess gifts all year long too!
