Bath Salts Gift Bag with Rebekah Faries

Today we are sharing a delightful project that doubles as a great gift idea.  This gift bag, created by Rebekah Faries, starts with a Kraft Bakery Bag, to which Rebekah added bath salts, then made it beautiful by adding a Heart Shaped Doily, some Baker's Twine, a tag, and an adorable wooden scoop from the shop.

The shop is on vacation currently, but you can still browse these items and more by clicking HERE.  We'll be back soon!

Wedding Gift Box with Jenifer Cowles

I needed a quick box for a wedding I was attending recently and this turned out just perfect.  Using 8 doilies I accordion folded them into quarters and hot glued them onto a circle to make a fun layered doily flower.  I stacked a flower on a button for a center.  A sprig of stamens and some wire string and I was ready to go with a fun custom box in just the colors I needed.

(Note: The shop is temporarily closed, but will reopen soon.  Thank you for your patience.)

DIY Nesting Boxes Tutorial with Connie Mercer

Connie shares a fun tutorial in which she alters our kraft boxes to make a lovely set of nested gifts.

1.  Pick the papers you wish to use. You will need 7 for each box.
2.  For the 2” box you will need to cut 7 at 1 ¾” X 1 ¾”.  Ink around each paper for shading.

3.   For the 3” box you will need to cut 7 at 2 ¾”X2 ¾”.  Ink around each paper for shading.
4.  For the 4” box you will need to cut 7 at 3 ¾”X3 ¾”. Ink around each paper for shading.
5.  Put those aside and ink up all edges of all 3 boxes.

6.  Next step is adhere the papers to each side.
7.  You will have one paper of each size left.  That one goes on the inside bottom.

 You are ready to decorate the front of the boxes.
  The fun part is deciding how you will use them.  They can be stacked, nested or used as storage boxes.

Fresh Air Layout with Kat Benjam

I always have a hard time when working with purple so I absolutely love Kat's layout today.  The contrast of the purple and blue on the white background is stunning and her flecks of color in enamel dotes and mists perfectly highlight the bright color and airy feel of her photographs. This one is definitely going to we a scraplift for me.
