  • Today I am sharing some quick and easy Holiday Packaging with the use of Die-namics.



First up is a gift bag. I started with a basic kraft gift bag. I used the new Snow Drifts Die-namics to create my snow background, cut out of patterned paper from the Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage 6 x 6 paper pad. The sentiment is from the Seasonal Greetings Stamp Set and cut out with the Framed Greetings Die-namics


I used the Santa's Sleigh Die-namics and cut the blade from gold, glittered cardstock. The snowflakes are cut with the Let It Snowflake Die-namics.


A simple tag can dress up any bag! Here is used the Tag You're It Die-namics for the base of the tag. Then I cut out the Winter Wreath three times and layered them on the tag. The bow is created with the new Dainty Bow Die-namics. The sentiment is from the Seasonal Sentiments stamp set.


I used the Let's Toast Die-namics to create this tag for a gift of wine. This sentiment is also included in the Seasonal Sentiments Stamp set.


I used the new Poinsettia Die-namics to create the flower. The leaves are cut from MFT felt in Jellybean Green. I used the new Medium Fancy Flourish Die-namic behind the flower.












Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you at the release party tonight and then I will be back with my New Product Tour project.

  10. I forgot to say I admire your sewing on the curved snow mounds in the first one; I also like the glitter gold bow on the second one -- the first I first wondered how you did the sewing through the bag! Doh!
