CASE-ing the Catty #40 - Gift Packaging

Don't you just love gifts, I love shopping for them, picking out the perfect something for someone and then I absolutely love packaging the gift up so it looks just right.  Sometimes I make boxes to perfectly fit a gift, sometimes I just choose some really pretty wrapping, but I think the way a gift is presented gives the recipient a little something extra.  So you can imagine my excitement at this week's CASE-ing the Catty challenge - taking inspiration from the Gift Packaging section.

I took inpsiration from one of the cute gift bags on page 56, but changed up the colour scheme to match the Bohemian DSP.  

In keeping with the theme I sponged the Kraft Tag a Bag Gift Bags using Island Indigo and one of the Happy Patterns stensils.  I accentuated some of the diamonds with the smallest stamp from Bohemian Borders using Blackberry Bliss.  The sentiment is from Tin of Cards stamp set, giving the whole bag some extra pop with silver accents.

Hop on over to Julia's Blog and check out the cute bag she has CASEd.

Happy Stamping


  1. Love what you've done with the stencil Monique. Bought them this week, but doubt I'd have thought of this.Looks fabulous.

  2. Love your bag!! I haven't noticed those stencils, it looks great!

  3. Love how you stencilled the bag! I bought those stencils and haven't used them yet! Great work!!

  4. Super project, Monique. Love the layering of the tags and pop of silver.

  5. Create idea about using the masks on a gift bag, I purchased a pack of masks this week and look forward to creating with them too.
