Creative Gift Giving

A beautifully wrapped gift speaks volumes.  It demonstrates the depth of the relationship between the gift giver and the recipient, it builds anticipation for discovering the surprise inside and it creates a festive happy mood because everyone loves opening a pretty package. While it is true that it’s the thought that counts, the pretty packaging adds that extra personal touch that tells a dear friend or loved one that you put your heart into every step of the process.  As a result, the gift is more memorable because someone took the time to make something extra special.

When it comes to creative gift giving, some of the most versatile items are the Here’s to Cheers Stamp Set and Cheerful Tags Framelit Dies, which are carryover items from the previous catalog and still available to order.  Best yet, they coordinate perfectly with the brand new Everyday Tags Stamp Set in the 2017 Occasions Catalog – giving you more gift giving options!

These stamps and dies will be great additions to your craft room because you can use them in so many different and creative ways – as gift tags, pretty packaging, decorative items, wine bottle labels, special occasion cards and so much more!   Plus, the sentiments are so versatile:  Cheers, Celebrate, A Toast to the Host, Best Dad Ever, Here’s to New Beginnings and Enjoy – just to name a few.  You’ll find that these are a great investment because you’ll be reaching for these over and over again, for many years to come.   

Check out the adorable hostess gift below.  My sister Leslie created the wrapping paper using some plain kraft wrapping paper, Here’s to Cheer stamp set and some Cherry Cobbler and Basic Black inks.  Next she added a burlap wire ribbon and a gift tag made using the Cheerful Tags framelit dies.  It is just super adorable!

Until next time, happy crafting!
