I love handmade gift packaging. It transforms the most inexpensive and simple gift in to something so much more. It’s like food – you eat with your eyes first. Same thing with gift giving – let them delight in the packaging first.
I bought some bags of those Lindt chocolate balls. They have raspberry ones out for Valentine’s Day, did you know?! I dropped some in glassine bags and then embellished for a pretty presentation.
This new fuschia rosette flower fabric from AMM is amazing. I don’t sew, and I don’t scrapbook so I’m sure I didn’t do this beautiful piece justice, but I added in chunks of it to my bag tags to really kick up the fancy factor.
I also used a lot of pretty vintage buttons and lace and pearl trim from AMM. My husband told me that these packages reminded him of the 20s and the flappers. I love that comment – mission accomplished!
