Pretty Packaging

one . two . three . four . five . six

Yesterday, I completed my Christmas shopping .. well nearly, there's always something that pops up right at the last moment.  But, for now, I am at least at the point of wrapping.  There's nothing I enjoy more then sitting down to wrap all the Christmas goodies that I have purchased. I love giving a beautifully wrapped gift almost as much as I enjoy receiving one. 

Over the weekend, I got on Pinterest to have a look at some creative wrapping ideas that I could take inspiration from.  Above are some of my favorite picks.  There are some that I can take inspiration from for this year and some that I may save for next year.  I love the labels in #1 for homemade food gifts for next year.  

While I was home in Virginia at the beginning of November, my Mom and I stopped at Paper Source to get some inspiration for putting together small gifts for the people that I work with.  We saw the below gift bag and label idea on display and loved it, so I decided to replicate it.  At Paper Source, they always have great ideas and examples on display throughout the store, it's awesome for inspiration. 

Here are some pics of the goodie bags that I put together.  The bags are filled with holiday candy and a small pack of homemade cookies with a hand sanitizer tied to the front of each.  To me, it's like a little retail "get me through this holiday season" care pack.

The items used to make the bags were purchased at Paper Source.

The sanitizers and holders are from Bath & Body Works (here and here)

The cookie bags were purchased at Micheals.
