December Reverse Confetti Blog Hop

Hi there! I'm here today with a project for our November Reverse Confetti Blog Hop! If you've come here from Leigh's Blog, you're on the right track! If not, please start at the Reverse Confetti Blog so you don't miss a single project!


This month, Jen challenged us to create some sort of gift packaging. I may have broken out in hives when she requested this as I'm not that great creating ABC projects, ha!! Thank goodness Reverse Confetti happens to carry dies that take all the brain work out of it for me!! I got out my Tagged Tote Confetti Cuts and the new North Pole Wishes stamp set and got to work!


The die is super easy to use, just run it through your die cut machine twice and then glue the two pieces together, so easy! I also cut out a vellum snowflake from the Let it Snow Confetti Cuts and layered it in the middle of bag, as well as the holly leaves from the North Pole Wishes Confetti Cuts.

To bump this project up another level, I made some glittery gold snowflake tissue paper! I wasn't able to get good pictures of the process, but it was super easy. Just cut a snowflake out of a piece of scrap paper and use the negative as a stencil. I layed the stencil down on the tissue paper and sprayed Aleene's Tacky Spray through the stencil and then poured some gold glitter on the tissue. It was a messy process and I, my dogs, and husband now have glitter all ourselves, but it was worth it, ha!! Fun technique if you're looking for ways to step up your own gift packaging!

Okay, well that's all I have to share today! Now you're off to visit Laurie Willison! Can't wait to see what that clever girl came up with;) If there are any broken links in our hop today, you can always find the entire hop list on the Reverse Confetti Blog! Thanks for stopping by today!

That gold glittered tissue paper rocks! Probably not a project for every gift, but hey special people deserve handmade tissue. A cute tote too, by the way.
