Ladies and gentlemen, Piali Biswas....

Hello Everyone!!

Its me Piali, I'm back with few more Winnie & Walter creations.
First of all ...thank you for all your lovely comments!

Gifts are the big part of winter holidays, Santa brings gifts , kid opens gifts on every night of, fun ,fun!!!
I believe every gift becomes extra special with PRETTY PACKAGING!!

So today I have few pretty packaging ideas to share with you all.

Let's start with a pillow box...

I embellished a corrugated pillow box from SEI using fabulous Winnie & Walter products.
I used Stag head from Comfort + Joy Digital Elements.
The heat emboss the antlers with gold embossing the black & gold combo.
I also stamped the pine branch image from In Bloom: Elsa's Flora set with black ink on cork.
Trimmed i and added as a layer to my embellishment cluster with some curly ribbon, a flair button & bells.
The sentiment is from Comfort + Joy set.

Next one is my favorite type of box...petal box!!

I used Silhouette Cameo to cut a petal box, then heat embossed the sentiment from Merry & Bright with Evelin T Designs with gold EP.

Gold and vellum are great combination... so I heat embossed the Poinsettia image from  In Bloom: Elsa's Flora set  on vellum using WOW gold glitter embossing powder. I created few Poinsettias.

Tied a bow with May Arts silk ribbon and added the layers of Poinsettias.
I also added few gold bells in the center.

Next up is the packaging idea for the popular gift... the GIFT CARDS!

Here is a quick and easy Gift Card Holder.
I created simple gift card holder out of cardstock.
One of favorite thing of the latest W&W release is the Scenery: Into The Woods Creative Screenings.
I created a soft stenciled background using distress ink.

I added a fun closure for the gift card holder using In a Word: MERRY Cutaway.
Adhered few layers of MERRY diecuts and tied  it with twine so that recipient can slide it off to open The Cardinal from Happiest of Holidays with Evelin T Designs set is too cute, had to use it on my project.
I colored the Cardinal using Copics and added some Wink Of Stella.
This gift card holder needed a little pop of  another color so I added few holly leaves from the In Bloom: Elsa's Flora set.
Holiday projects always need some sparkle, green Stickles were perfect for my holly leaves!!

How can I forget about candies... the most yummy gifts ever!!
I made few little candy box filled with M&M s for younger daughter to give out to her friends.

The box is digital cut file from Silhouette store, I changed it a bit to serve my need.
Filled the box with candies and added a fun gold glittery bow on it..quick & easy gift idea!!!
I used Take a Bow Cutaways for this project.

Hope you all like these pretty packaging ideas!!
I had a blast creating with amazing Winnie & Walter products!
