Today I'm excited to share a little gift packaging I created using the Radiant Orchid Inspiration Kit (now sold out) that I had in my shop earlier this month. The inspiration came from my new monthly inspiration series where I create a themed board on Pinterest and share inspiration all month long here on the blog. This month's inspiration board is titled Radiant Orchid(Pantone Color of the Year). You can read about it in this post.
Here's the supply line up for my gift packaging. I used Large Kraft Sacks, the painted Medium White Parcel Tags from the kit, a glittered flower sprig, Washi tape from my stash and the silk ribbon and seam binding from the kit.Thirty-One tote bag to take to ballgames and parties. It was so thoughtful...I am so touched when friends give you gifts "just because". Actually she said it was a thank you for always having 20 kids at our house at any given moment. :) Anyway, I packaged up 3 cards with envelopes for her because she loves my cards. Another great reason to have cards on hand...to keep them for little gifts.
Up for discussion....
I'm finding that it really warms my heart to send a card or give a small gift (even if it's just a few handmade cards) to those who do good deeds for us. It's a fun exchange and I find the more you give, the more you receive. Receive as in feeling good....but sometimes a surprise like receiving a fun gift like a new tote bag. I'd love to hear what you give as little gifts as this is high on my to do list this year. Next up, I got an invite to one of these Thirty-One parties from my friend. It's been years since I've been to a home party so I'm kind of out of the loop. I'm thinking I'll buy my mom a little tote to take back and forth to her car. She's getting kind of forgetful these days so I thought a fun bag with lots of pockets might be nice for keeping her list, wallet, travel cup, snacks, etc. Fun stuff!
