THE TWELVE DAYS OF HOLIDAY PACKAGES NO.10

Package No.10 of The Twelve Days of Holiday Packages was inspired by my love of simple layers. Although I like to layer different papers when creating handmade packaging, I also love the look of layering fabric or cotton ribbon with paper. 

Package No. 10 combines both cotton ribbon and paper in a simple and sweet holiday package. An alternative to hand stamping cotton ribbon (Package No.3) is to print out paper gift bands and adhere them to cotton ribbon. 

And if you like the idea of personalizing ribbon, check out the Epson LabelWorks Printable Ribbon Kits, it is on my wish list!
