Here is a cute idea for you to package some really cute little items in.

It’s a purse shaped like a trapezoid – just like my real current one!  Once you fill it, it’s not gonna tip over, that’s for sure!

This is an open view .

When closed, the front flap and cover/lid are secured together with velcro or magnets – they both work well.  I left the front tabs unattached to the sides for ease of loading and unloading goodies and treats.

Same purse – different look

My tutorial for this trapezoid purse for gift giving is available today!

It includes 9 pages of instruction along with 26 photos to assist you in creating your own purses.

The tutorial is available starting today for $1.99 CAD.

I’m going to go make a dozen more and then figure out what fun and festive things to put inside.  Not that it matters because it’s all about the packaging, isn’t that what they say?

TTFN!

I saw a new brand of Christmas herbal tea in the grocery store and it managed to fall into my cart and come home with me – I decided the tea bags needed a new, more festive box to sit in:

 

This box will stay visible in my kitchen during the Christmas season.  Only 3 weeks until its time to put up the tree!  I love it!

TTFN!

How many of you give out a plate of cookies at Christmas? 

HaHa!! I knew it – lots of you!!!  Me too!

This year, let’s throw away those paper plates and plastic wrap and give cookies away in this!

I was able to fit a dozen cookies in this box – the dimensions are 2 3/4″ x 6 1/2″ x 2 3/4″ .

 Here’s the step-by step instructions for you:

Step 1:

Stamp a 12″x 12″piece of cardstock as desired.  I used Bravo Burgundy, Bells & Boughs stamp set and shimmer paint.

Score one side at 2 3/4″ and 9 1/4″; turn cardstock 90 degrees and score at 2 3/4″, 5 1/2″, 8 1/4″, and 11″.

Step 2:

Cut off the two un-neccessary thin ends.

Step 3:

Cut on all horizontal score lines up to intersecting score lines – this creates your side ends.

Step 4:

Cut off  1  3/4″ off set of 1st tab ends. This creates the box lid…

Step 5:

Round all 4 lid corners.

Step 6:

Create a 2 1/2″x 4 3/8″ rectrangular template; lay template on box top and trace; cut out with paper cutter.

Cut a piece of acetate sheet to 3 1/2″x 5 1/2″ and adhere to inside of box covering the window.

Step 7:

Fold on all score lines folding the acetate sheet as you go.

Step 8:

 Apply double-sided tape to the last two tabs on each end as shown in photo above.  Fold up box starting at far end and finished at box lid.  Fold lid into box with tabs on the inside.

Decorate as desired…then send me a link or photo of your creation- I want to see!!!

TTFN!

Have you tried the new Candy Wrapper Bigz Die from the Holiday Mini Catalogue?  It is fun, fun, fun!!

This wrapper takes no time at all to put together and is not a problem to mass produce – you can take my word on that, because I hate mass producing anything!!

These were no problem and I think what makes them so easy is that you only need 1 piece of adhesive!  Limited steps are involved from start to finish.  You can do so many different end enclosures too!  I have to experiment with different ends a bit next time…

They are a pretty good size too – I was able to fit 6 Werther’s chocolates into each one.  Just the chocolate fix my guests needed half way through the afternoon last Saturday!

TTFN!

This tutorial is 23 pages full of step-by-step instructions and has over 50 photos to assist you all the way in creating your goody packages!  It is available today for $3.99 CAD.

Here are some other photos of the projects:

I have used minimal supplies to create these packages so it will be easy for you to recreate:
