Authentique Paper & Pretty Pink Posh- A "Radiant" Gift Set
This week we are showcasing projects created with our newest collections along with products from Pretty Pink Posh! Join us every day this week for inspiration projects from our fabulous design team!
Hi everyone, it's Audrey, with a fun and festive gift set to share with you today that features Authentique's adorable Radiant collection, and lots of pretty sequins from our product partner this week, Pretty Pink Posh.
I am a huge fan of pretty packaging, and I love to make my own gift sets using my stash of papercrafting supplies. It's so easy to do, and is way less expensive than store-bought gift wrap. Better yet, with handmade packaging, you can customize your gifts to perfectly suit any theme or occasion. For my mother's recent birthday, I put together this bright and happy Radiant set that totally captures her bright and happy spirit.
One of my favorite tricks with gift wrap is to alter an existing plain box, like I did here. It just takes a minute or two to add patterned paper to the top and sides of the lid. Journaling cards from the new Authentic Life Cards and banner strips cut from additional patterned papers are an easy way to add extra embellishment to the top. Then add ribbon, and a big happy bow.
This pretty bow was quick work, thanks to the help of a Tim Holtz Alterations die. Simply die cut, assemble, and top with a great big button. I added a few Radiant die cuts and a sticker tag, then threw in a scattering of beautiful sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. Love how the sequins turn this gift box into an instant party!
Made a matching gift card by pulling in some of the same papers as the box, and adding a matching die cut bow, additional banner strips, and Authentic Life Cards. Finished it all with a few more sequins. So fun and festive, isn't it?
