December Reverse Confetti Blog Hop!


Amy3

Welcome to the December Reverse Confetti Blog Hop!  This month we are changing things up a bit with sharing more than just a card.......Pretty Packaging!

The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog and I am the next stop! It would be worth your while to start at the beginning of the hop, so you don’t miss a thing. We have tons of inspiration for you to see using Reverse Confetti stamp sets and dies!

*********************

Since I give lots of gift cards during the holidays, I've used the Tagged Tote to make a reusable gift card holder out of felt.  I started by diecutting 2 of the totes out of gray felt and one rectangle piece.  Now, I'm no seamstress so I just assembled using hot glue.  Very easy to do.

I didn't take a photo of this step but instead of diecutting the "handle" that comes with the Tagged Tote Die, I left it out because I wanted to be able to stitch a button on the back flap so I could "button" my Tote closed!  I simply cut a slit in the front flap and buttoned closed!  To cover up the back flap where I'd stitched my button on, I diecut a small circle and hot glued it over the top to hide the stitching to give it a finished look.

Attached to my button, is a removable tag using Circles and Scallops Confetti Cuts and North Pole Wishes Confetti Cuts.  I thought it would be fun to include a mini 3x3 card using a sentiment from Seasonal Sentiments and more holly to keep with the theme of my gift.

One last detail I included was stamping my own tissue paper to wrap my gift card in for the inside of my tote.  Here's the tissue paper......nothing fancy but gives the whole gift a polished look!

So cute, and I'm smacking my forehead about stamping the tissue paper. Why hasn't it ever occurred to me to do that when all I have is boring ol' white tissue paper? Thanks for the tips!
