Paisleys & Posies by Stampin’ Up!

Dream Theme Blog Hop #2


Welcome to the second Dream Theme Blog Hop. It’s a monthly blog hop featuring some amazing Stampin’ Up!® Independent Demonstrators from around the world. This month we are sharing amazing, inspirational small gift packaging ideas. Currently you’re visiting me, Tracy May from London, UK. To continue along the blog hop, please use the links below.

I love paisley. Always have. I remember a black skirt I got when I was around 17. It had a beautiful purple paisley print all over. I wore that skirt till it practically fell apart! So when I saw Paisleys & Posies in the 2016 Autumn/Winter Catalogue I knew I had to have it! It’s what I used for my Online order club gifts in October and I knew it was perfect for the theme of today’s blog hop!

I used the Kraft Tag a Bag gift bags which are the perfect size for the Stampin’ Up! Rhinestones (and Pearls) packets. I stamped Paisleys & Posies in Versamark over the front of the gift bags and then heat set it. I added a strip of Cherry Cobbler and Copper card stock underneath and finished off with a Cherry Cobbler tag. The Kraft Rope trim was stapled to the front of the bag. Sadly the hand held stapler is being retired due to issues with supply.
