THE TWELVE DAYS OF HOLIDAY PACKAGES NO.1 

I had so much fun designing packaging ideas for The Twelve Days of Holiday Packages. I hope you find inspiration and incorporate some of the ideas in to your own holiday packaging. Package No.1 was inspired by a walk I took with my boys. We found a sidewalk sprinkled with gold gingko leaves and my boys wanted to collect the leaves and press them at home. After several days underneath some of my heaviest books we had beautiful flat gingko leaves in the perfect shade of yellow. For this packaging project you can incorporate any type of leaf, just take a walk around the block and see what you find!
