Welcome to this week's Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style...this week we're featuring quick and easy gift packaging!
My notecard gift set, shown above, is all packed up and ready to go in a fabulous "Crystal Clear box"...no need to gift wrap...the gift inside adds all of the decor. A "Bow Easy" was used to tie the May Art's Silk Ribbon bow, and JustRite's "Winter Words" make up the gift tag.
Here are some pictures of the notecards that make up the gift. More gift cards would have fit into the box along with the envelopes, but I just made up three...
All of the supplies (minus the Copic Sketch Markers) are from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, and all of the designs are made up of Kaisercraft "After Five Collection" decorator paper. You can see the entire collection of "After Five" HERE.
This card uses two different JustRite sets: "Butterfly Botanicals" for the bee, and "Fleur De Lis Labels Twenty." The die used is Spellbinders "Labels Twenty." May Art's Black 5/8" lace, threaded through with May Art's 1/8" Ivory Silk makes for a border.
I used JustRite's "Botanical Butterflies" for this design. I paper pieced the butterfly, then added touches of Spica Glitter pen. It was die cut with Spellbinder Circle dies (check with Sharon for availability), and finished off with May Art's 5/8" Ivory Lace, threaded through with Silver Cord, and Kaisercraft silver Rhinestones. These are pretty simple designs--the flocking, foiling, and pretty prints make it all work.
This lovely image is JustRite's "Musical Notes Labels Twenty." The Spellbinders "Labels Twenty" die adds that extra special touch, along with Copic and Spica coloring, and Kaisercraft Rhinestones. May Art's Ringlet Trim adds a creamy touch to match the ribbon in the image.
