Hello, hello, Friends, and happy Monday to you all! Today I have some Sizzix inspiration to share with you. A pretty fall-themed gift packaging idea made with amazing new dies from Stephanie Barnard and Tim Holtz.
With all the fancy gift wrapping options out there, I still gravitate to plain kraft paper. It never fails… I am just a sucker for brown paper packages. To me, they are classic and timeless, work perfectly for any event and any person on your gift-giving list, and are super easy to dress up or down to fit any occasion.
To celebrate fall birthdays this month, I thought it would be fun to create a fall-inspired gift packaging using some of the amazing new Alterations dies by Tim Holtz. This is the gorgeous new Layered Leaf die and texture plate, along with the new Jumbo Tattered Pine Cones. Both of these dies are a nice large size and are just perfect for decorating larger projects, like this big gift box.
I really love how the leaves turned out. Such pretty color and really amazing texture, thanks to the matching embossing folder that comes with the set. I dipped the leaves in lots of fall-colored Distress inks, then coated them in Clear Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint and Rusty Hinges Glitter. The fun little tag and sentiment come from the new Tags Framelits Die and Stamp Set by Stephanie Barnard.
I’ve got a full, step-by-step tutorial up on the Sizzix blog, if you’d like to learn more.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by!
