Gift Packaging with the Rollagraph
Hello! Today I wanted to share a project and video that I created for the Clearsnap blog a few weeks back.
Now that November has begun, the season of gift giving is already upon us and what better way to show your loved ones you care than by translating the gratitude and appreciation you feel for them not only in the gifts you give but also in the way you present them. Have your scrap supplies moonlight as gift wrap so you can take a little time off.
I created this autumn themed gift box to hold homemade treats for some of the people we appreciate having in our lives - the mailman, bus driver, etc - that we are not necessarily on gift-giving terms with but are definetly grateful for the services the provide. Not to detract from the sentiment, but it also means less to do at Christmas time.
This concept can easily translate to a Christmas or birthday theme - and for the smile you'll put on the recipient's face, it is worth every bit of effort.
