Perfect Packaging – The Terrific Tin

I just love the classic style of this Terrific Tin!  Basic Black and Very Vanilla come together for perfection in this small tin with a matching tag attached.  I used the Love Letter Designer Series Paper to create a classic package perfect for gift wrapping any small gift such as an engagement ring, ear rings or any of the Simply Adorned Charms.  

When I decorate packaging, I always measure dimensions then subtract approximately 1/8th to 1/4th from the dimensions of the cardstock and designer series paper that I use to create the finished packaging.  Since this is a round tin, I used the Circle Scissor Plus to cut out the different sized circles.

This tin also worked great for some Christmas Tags that I made.  To see the tags, come back tomorrow.

 SunnyGirlScraps Tips of the day:

  • Don’t be afraid to dress up brown lunch bags or boxes to create unique gift packaging.
  • Think about recycling and reusing gift bags you’ve receive but add your own touch by using Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper, card stock and stamps.
  • If you are a guy – don’t worry about the overall outcome as you often it is the “attempt” that really matters!  One of my husbands greatest valentine gifts were a mini poem book he made along with a handmade cupcake box that kept falling apart.  We also have found family memories of the time my brother used ELECTRICAL tape to wrap Christmas Gifts because he didn’t own any other tape.
  • Circle Scissor Plus – This can sometimes be a frustrating tool.  I’ve found the secret to cutting paper and card stock is to attach the material you are cutting to the glass mat using adhesive placed on the four corners of the paper.  It is also important to be patient.  I also keep the scraps especially as sometimes using the Circle Scissor Plus “wastes” paper.  Again, keep in mind the idea of “recycling” your cut pieces of paper.
