Just a Little Something with Sizzix

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.

  1. Beautiful! I love wrapping in brown paper, it alway inspires me to sing a little Sound of Music–brown paper packages tied up with string….. 😀 The texture of the leaves is great, too. Need to check out that set! Thanks for the Monday inspiration!

  2. The tag may say ‘just a little something’, but the project is obviously ‘just a little more’ than that!!! Those leaves look so gorgeous…you’ve really made them come alive, Audrey!!! Beautiful packaging!!!

  3. Gorgeous! Those leaves look amazing. I really like the brown paper for wrapping too. It’s crisp and clean and let’s you beautiful leave arrangement take center stage. Fantastic dress up Audrey! Hugs!

  4. The leaves caught my eye and after that I discovered the pinecones. They are pretty amazing too! Lovely fall colors. Almost hard to unwrap a gift as pretty as this!
    I would keep it this way:)
