Hi everyone and welcome to this weeks CASEing the Catty Blog Hop!
This week its CTC 155 and we are CASEing Gift Packaging from either catalogue!
You may have popped over from Judy’s blog or be starting here – but take the hop full circle for lots of inspiration when creating your own gift packaging – it’s not just about cards after all! Lol.
This week my inspiration is just a little bit obscure! I started with the boxes in the top left of the image below from page 36 in the Holiday Catalogue…
The box on the top is made with the Champagne Foil Sheets. I really liked the idea of this box, but was going to create in using the Window Box Thinlets. However…. on my hunt for where I had hidden my Champagne Foil Sheets, I came across my Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate and my mind starting wondering what a Window Box made out of this might look like. Hmmm, a bit of a fancy Christmas Gift Packaging Idea I thought. So you know I just had to then create it. So I did!
Because of the Acetate Box, it was super tricky to get a good photo – but I gave it my best go so you can get an idea of how sweet this little acetate box really is.
I added a Gold Foil Hexagon to the top of the box for a bit more clarity to the lid, and just like the image I was CASEing – I added a Gold Foil Star on top of that for some extra texture and effect.
Add some ribbon, Year of Cheer Embellishments and a present from the Christmas Around the World Embellishments and I was pretty happy with the simple elegance of the box all dressed up for a pretty special gift for someone!
It is definitely a bit trickier to work with the acetate but I think it was worth it. I used Fast Fuse to join all my tabs as I didn’t want glue making a mess of the acetate. I encourage you to give it try. I hope you like it as much as I do!
And – the Window Box Thinlets are discounted this week during the Online Extravaganza!!!!
