pink & gold goodness, part two (and a giveaway!)


hey, all!  i've got some samples for you tonight, made using my pink and gold gift wrap kit.  the kit is listed here in my Etsy shop.  it's jam-packed full of trinkets to decorate your packages, dress up gift bags, and make gift cards truly personal.  {for a closeup look at the kit in its entirety, check out pink & gold goodness, part one.}  and, please be sure to read all the way through this post for a special surprise at the end! 


here's the confetti bag paired with a pink scallop card, a bitty gold clothespin, bitty heart tag, and a paper medallion.  write a little message on the back of the card and attach it to a wedding or bridal shower gift.


i taped one of the large paper flags to a glassine bag and slipped a strung tag inside for a quick gift bag...hair accessories, makeup, movie tickets...it's just a cute way to say, hey, "i like you!"


i love this wood bird tag so i made it the center of attention here by layering it onto a pink dyed doily and a washi strung tag. i like to use the clothespins in place of adhesives or staples so that my recipient can take apart the pieces and reuse some of them.  


the small glassine envelopes were almost made for gift cards!  i don't know about you, but i start swooning when i see glassine!  there's something about its translucency that adds a softness and sweetness to whatever is inside.  pairing it with the little bird tag and a gold price tag would make such a cute gift card holder for a new baby girl, don't you think?


here's a birthday-themed gift using the gold-spritzed doily, gold shimmer twine, and a washi toothpick flag.  the "happy birthday" washi tape serves many purposes here--it's keeping the doily in place so i didn't have to use glue on it; it's wrapped all the way around the box to seal it closed; and it's my sentiment, too.  there are 6 feet of the washi tape and 10 feet of the twine so you can do this on larger boxes, too.  you could also swap out the small flag for the larger one! 


lastly, i slipped one of the pink doilies inside a glassine envelope to use as a backing for some pretty barrettes.  use one of the many tags included in the kit and a clothespin and your gift is a wrap!  it's so easy because everything coordinates to make it look like you spent a lot of time preparing your packages for giving.   


if that's not enough, you still have the muslin bag to use.  i'm telling you, this kit has so many possibilities and makes gift-wrapping quick and simple, yet tremendously lovely!


again, you can see full details here and even pick one up, if you'd like.  i think it would also make a fantastic gift!


there's one more very important thing...i'm giving an entire kit away to one lucky winner!!!  to enter, all you have to do is leave a comment telling me how you would use the kit.  that's it!  it's open to anyone, including readers outside the US.  the lucky winner will be chosen at random on Monday, August 19, so you have until 11:59pm (PST) on Sunday, August 18 to leave your comment.  i hope you'll all play along!
