Holiday Table Setting Gift Packaging

Table-setting-gift-for-holidays-1This week's makeover is a classy look for your holiday table setting with this little gift packaging idea for a small treat or gift. 

When I first saw this color combo for Christmas, I wasn't too sure if it was going to work for me.  But, get your hands on this beautiful Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper along with some embellishments and the Merry Music Specialty Paper...you'll see a winning combination. 

Black and white is trendy and elegant and you can add a splash of any color to match your decor or table setting.  Here you see Old Olive which is the accent color in this designer paper collection. 

Let's look at the simple how-to for the assembly then you can start thinking about what you'd like to add as the little surprise inside.

Click here to see the original video tutorial on You Tube.

Lisa's Inklings:

  • For today's project, I cut the paper at 4" x 5 1/2",
  • Apply your Tear & Tape or Adhesive on the wrong side of your designer paper.  (along one side and and center of bottom)
  • Ribbon is cut about 16" long.
  • Brush Old Olive ink  with Aqua Painter over Shimmery White card stock before stamping the sentiment.
