So are any of you like DOWN TO THE WIRE on getting all your Christmas stuff done? Whew...I still have loads to do. But I wanted to take a quick sec to pop in and show you some fun packaging ideas for the holidays and even for the everyday. I shared some of these over at According to Kelly a few weeks back but wanted to give you a peek here too. Some of these are archived from a few years back but the one above is new. :) Those pom poms will also be goodies that will be available in my shop if I ever get it open.
I am big time crushing on the Felt and Yarn for the colorful packaging above. I will pretty much pom pom anything so putting a bunch of jumbo ones on a box and throwing some washi tape on there for a little something extra (and perfect for a sweet, merry message) was a must. :) I had such fun making these colorful and cozy packages using simple techniques like tying off a box with yarn and making a felt flower garland with a little flag taped on with washi tape.
The above packaging is a Red and Aqua theme I did a few years ago. I created whimsical elements here like a lollipop using twine and a lollipop stick. I also glued flattened cupcake liners to make giant polka dots, made a pocket package with extra paper and lined the edge with ribbon. I played around making loopy yarn flowers with a pretty button and created cracker styled packages with shredded paper filler and pom poms for embellishment.
Pom Pom Washi Tags
Glue a lollipop stick to a pom pom and add some washi tape to make whimsical tags for your packages. Here, I used coordinating colored paint chips to create pockets for the gifts.
Red and White Peppermint Elements
Here I used wrapping and tissue paper to decoupage a button, a wood bead and to wrap around a wooden spool. I also made the cute little gift bag with silver grommets and put paper doilies as the filler. Or add a little lace flag to a toothpicks with a little bead glued on top. Probably some of my favorite packaging. :)
Hope you enjoyed these packaging ideas and came away a little bit inspired today.
