as promised, i've returned today with more packaging and Valentine kit samples.
first though, i have to make mention of this wood cigar box...it was a gift from my folks at Christmastime and i absolutely love it! there are a bunch of crafty bits i'd like to store inside, but it's been working so well as a photography prop that i may have to keep it as that for awhile.
and now back to the Valentine kit...you can see the entire ensemble here...doilies, tags, clothespins, twine...it's very similar to the contents of the red and pink kit, but there are a few different items. as i mentioned in yesterday's post, while this does have clear Valentine elements to it, i also think that most of the items will work for decorating packages on any occasion.
just like the red and pink kit, all items here come packaged in a stamped 5 x 7 muslin bag. i've included the glassine bags, mini stamped clothespins, and large heart flags, though with different patterned papers. but instead of the strung washi tags, this kit includes yarn-wrapped kraft tags. i have been a fan of them for awhile and sometimes like to dress them up a bit.
here i took a couple of the bitty tags, a washi covered clothespin, and confetti bag to give it a more festive look. it would be easy to clip to a gift bag, a wrapped present, or even to one of the glassine bags that comes with the kit.
besides the glassine bags, there are also 5 kraft bags for the safe-keeping of yummy treats!
here's one decorated with a doily, a large heart flag, and two tags. so easy to assemble and even more fun to give!
tags, flags, and confetti...the bitty punched tags come in two styles and have coordinating patterns on the back--so actually, you're getting four styles! and, there are ten total in each kit so you can mix and match several times.
this is a small box of chocolates wrapped in a doily and brown baker's twine. it features the smaller heart toothpick flag and the sweet "with love" strung tag.
washi covered clothespins and baker's twine...definite staples in my crafting/wrapping/packaging life! i use both of these things so often--especially in gift wrapping because they are inexpensive but pack a big punch. there are 20 yards of each of the red and brown twine and 6 small clothespins decorated with red and brown washi tapes.
this package features items from the red and pink kit, but i included it in this post, also, because you can replicate the look with a couple of substitutions from the red and brown kit.
i'll be listing both kits in my Etsy shop a little later today and will post links here after they've gone up. feel free to contact me if you have any questions. i had so much fun assembling these kits and wrapping up my little gifts...i hope you got some good ideas!
on a personal note...i very happily accepted an invitation from Crate Paper to stay on their Design Team for 2013! i still can't believe it and am so excited for the year ahead. they've been introducing all of the talented ladies on their blog this week so be sure to check it out!
have a great weekend!
