Handmade Holidays with Authentique Paper & Tombow!

This week we are showcasing products from our friends atTombow to bring you tons of Christmas/Winter themed inspiration!

Join us all week long for Christmas gift ideas that you can easily create with  Authentique Paper and Tombow products!
********************

December Greetings!  Shellye here with a fun way to package up those party favors or small gifts.  It all starts with the Tradition Collection and Tombow Adhesives.

I have also used the beautiful Poinsettia Dies by Spellbinders and We R's "Gift Box" Score Board, both of which can be found online.  Authentique's papers are truly made for papercrafting projects such as this...scores and folds beautifully without tearing!

For the boxes I've used a sheet of the 12X12 Tradition's paper and then followed the instructions found on the Gift Box template.  The directions call for a strong adhesive, so I chose to use Tombow's Stamp Runner to adhere the sides together.  I love this adhesive with its ergonomic design and strength.

After die-cutting the poinsettia pieces from the Tradition's 6X6 paper bundle, I layered them together with Tombow's Power Tabs...I also used these on the backs of the buttons!  The fact that these are clear and super sturdy are a big plus.

The ends were tied together with some pretty evergreen ribbon by May Arts.


And of course you must have To: and From: tags!  Although these are from the Elements Sticker Sheet, I just powdered the backs lightly to take away the sticky and then tied them on with baker's twine.  Nest them all in a basket or bucket and have them handy as your guests come to visit this Christmas season!
