Hi there, MME friends! Lea here today to share some ideas for using your My Mind's Eye goodies when you wrap gifts! I LOVE to give gifts, and I LOVE to make the outside just as pretty as whatever might be on the inside! And I am always raiding my scrapbooking product whenever I have to put together a gift!
Supplies: Jubilee "Mint Julep" - "Ride" 12x12 paper; Market Street "Nob Hill" - chipboard elements, chipboard buttons, flair pins; Necessities Metallic - alpha & word stickers; Now and Then "Mildred" - "Today" accent stickers; Record It! "Charmed" - enamel dots; other: wrapping paper, glitter cardstock, twine, bow die.
Valentine's day is right around the corner, so I went with a love theme for my gift wrapped projects today! But, I didn't use the traditional red & pink. I actually used gold, black & white, pulling goodies from different My Mind's Eye collections to accent the boxes. These would be great for the man in your life because they aren't super girly, but he might not love all the glitter from the glitter wrap. :)
I started by wrapping the larger box with glitter wrapping paper. After that I added added a doily to the side of it, then tied twine around it. I threaded the gold chipboard button to the middle of the twine bow, then layered a heart sticker & polka dot flair piece underneath it (tucking them under the twine as well).
I added the chipboard piece to the lower corner, added the word love in letter stickers & then accented it with enamel dots. Are you wondering how I got everything to stick to glittered paper? HOT GLUE. It will be your best friend when embellishing gift wrap. It still makes the package easy to take apart, but everything should stay on perfectly until they open it!
Next up is the smaller box, which I wrapped in some 12x12 MME paper. After wrapping it, I diecut the bow from gold glittered cardstock, then assembled it & adhered it to the top. I accented the middle of the bow with a gold chipboard circle.
To finish the small box, I layered a heart sticker & word sticker to the front and then embellished it with some enamel dots. Easy peasy!
Be sure to make your valentines feel extra special this year by wrapping their gifts up in super pretty products from My Mind's Eye. They will for sure feel loved by added touch of beautiful packaging!
Thanks for checking out my projects, and I hope that you have a wonderful rest of your day!
