As you know, I love creating pretty packages and packaging holiday gifts is one of my favorite things to do in December. I loved creating The Twelve Days of Holiday Packages last year and had every intention of doing it again this year. And although I managed to create the twelve packages, I did not get around to photographing and blogging about them until now (work deadlines, holiday school parties and commitments got the best of me). But better late than never, right?
The great thing about the package designs is that they are not limited to the holidays, they can be used year-round for birthday gifts, party favors, etc. I chose some of my favorite colors, silver & grey, as the color palette for this year's The Twelve Days of Holiday Packages.
Many of the packages are inspired by projects from my book, Pretty Packages, and only require a few supplies and materials. I know people think that it takes a lot of time to create a beautiful package, but if you have some basic materials and supplies at home, you can create a pretty package in less than five minutes.
