Pretty Packaging Blog Hop from Reverse Confetti

Well, it's the 8th of the month and REVERSE CONFETTI has got a brand new shiny BLOG HOP for y'all to get lots of inspiration from.  With Christmas just right around the corner, we know there are those little gifty things that just look so much cuter in some "pretty packaging".  So we've put our thinking caps on and the Confetti Crew and friends have come up with some unique ideas to make your gift giving craftiness come together in a snap! 

The hop started over on the REVERSE CONFETTI Blog HERE and y'all should have made it my blog via SARAH'S Blog HERE. It would be worth your while to start at the beginning of the hop, so you don’t miss a thing!

Our oldest daughter, Shelbie had so much fun doing some "light crafting" with me on Thanksgiving that I thought I'd put together a little something for her that she could do on her own to make as part of her very own "pretty packaging" this year.  I made her this cute and VERY SIMPLE tag kit, inspired by some that I had seen at Target.

This was so easy to make--I simply die cut all the pieces for her.  The tag is cut from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts in two different patterned papers.  The trees are from BRANCH OUT and the name banners are from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts.  I then stamped the "to/from" sentiments from the LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS stamp set on each banner. 

The dividers inside my tin were a little tricky, but with a few measurements and folds of some cardstock, I soon had it cut down to where I needed it, and kept adding layers of folded cardstock to made the smaller compartments.   

I made this tag kit as a set of 8, but it can be made with more (or less), but I was sure to cut an extra of everything to create the tag for the top of my box as her example on how to put it together.  I'm sure she can come up with some glue, but underneath the tags in the largest compartment, I included some pop dots to pop up the tree!  Shelbie's going to love getting these on Tuesday when she comes over!

Ok, I hope you’ve enjoyed hopping with us today. Be sure and hop with us on the 8th of EVERY MONTH for more REVERSE CONFETTI inspiration! You've reached the end of the hop!  If you got lost along the way, you can find the hop order and list of all the participating designers over on the Reverse Confetti blog.
Want to win some REVERSE CONFETTI 
 of your very own?  
Just comment on each designer's blogs for your chance!  Comments will close on Wednesday at midnight CST and the winner will be announced over on the RC blog on Friday's "Week in Reverse" post.  Good luck!

SUSIE Q-TIP:  Tie your "sample" tag onto the front of the box with enough ribbon for the recipient to get some use from it as well.  They could easily use it instead of the included twine to tie through the tag's hole for a special gift.  Also, you don't NEED a tin to make this project happen.  Keep it super simple and just put all your pieces into a glassine or clear plastic bag/envelope and attach the handmade tag to the front.
