Hi there! So glad March is here, it means Spring isn’t far away and that also means Easter is on the horizon. Today I have made a few packaging ideas for Easter gifts – whether they are of the sweet kind or maybe it could be a garden centre voucher for someone who loves their garden. Whatever the gift I think they would be even more warmly received in some really pretty packaging like these here. I have used some really zesty colours as opposed to the traditional pastel – just for a change! For both the gift bag and ‘cracker’ I used the ‘We R Memory Keepers’ Candy Box scoreboard, and the Gift Bag scoreboard. These are really easy to use and you can make them up into different sizes. These are great at any time of the year for gifts – especially Christmas – obviously! I like to make small gift bags to put gift vouchers in – seems like you’re giving them more of a present – something to open! The crackers or ‘candy boxes’ are also a good idea for any celebration – not just for Christmas. I made the box using one of the very first pieces of equipment that I got when I started crafting – a scoreboard. Actually it’s only recently that I’ve started making boxes! I really don’t know how I managed without them for so long! This board was used just for scoring different styles of card, now I use it for it’s main function!!! – got there in the end! All these ideas can fit in all kinds of goodies, especially nice for your children’s little friends maybe, or even their teachers.
