Countdown to Christmas Day 17 & a Winner!


Today I had my first Christmas party with a large group of people that I go walking with, it was a sit down meal which I thoroughly enjoyed, I do love a good traditional Christmas dinner!

Anyway, I am back today with another pretty packaging project to share...

Time is whizzing by SO fast now and creativity time is short so simple and quick packaging maybe whats needed for you too? 

For this I used the Designer Dies Snowflakes to create a tag. I die cut & glittered the largest snowflake and then added a white heat embossed Merry Christmas 1 3/4" circle which is adhered using foam adhesive for some dimension. I then adhered a white 1 1/34" circle on the reverse to write who the gift is for.

A cluster of small die cut snowflakes also dowsed in glitter added a little more interest and bling to the packaging. I'm pleased with these pretty gift bags as they match the kraft snowflake card I shared HERE the other day. 

How about a winner for the December release day blog hop? I'm a little late posting this but, better late than never. So without further ado random.org picked number 70, who left the following comment on Nicki's blog...

How pretty! Love the soft colours and great use of the hearts - sweet design :)

Congratulations Sarah! Send me an email to beverley@unikostudio.com with your mailing address and I will pop your prize in the mail to you :)
That's all from me today, I will be back again with more to share as I continue my final preparations for Christmas. Until then, thank you for stopping by :)

  1. More terrific packaging Beverley - you are so full of great ideas. Well done Sarah on the Blog Hop win. x

  2. Congrats to Sarah; I know she'll love the December release! Your bag, Bev, is so, so pretty! Amazing what some well-placed, sparkly, beautiful snowflakes can do to transform 'simple' to elegant. I'm kicking myself for not ordering the snowflake dies, but they are on the shopping list, for sure. Thanks for another round of fabulous inspiration!
