Simple Gifts with Labels to Love

Hello there! I'm back today with a few simple gifts using the Labels to Love Stamp Set and coordinating Everyday Label Punch. For the fall and spring holidays (Halloween, Thanksgiving and Valentine's), I chose to use the Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper along with the colors Blackberry Bliss, Petal Pink, Cajun Craze, Mint Macaron and Tranquil Tide in inks and cardstocks. For each greeting, I stamped and punched the label image, either the plain label or a more elaborate label image. Some of the smaller greetings I punched with a small circle, and layered on the label. Others I stamped a second time in another color, and cut out part of the image to layer.

I filled each Clear Tiny Treat Box with some jelly beans in coordinating colors. Then each box was wrapped with a 1" strip of patterned paper. I used two of the leaf prints, and one of the striped prints for these boxes. I also used the Nature's Twine to secure the tags and adhered them to the paper wraps as well.

For the Christmas and New Year's labels I used the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper and Night of Navy, Old Olive, Real Red and Shaded Spruce cardstocks and inks. I tied on the labels with both the Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine and the Garden Green and White Baker's Twine.

Here  you can see the patterns I chose for the Christmas boxes. I love me some plaid paper! Look at all those yummy colors of jelly beans too.

Last, but not least is the New Year's treat. I found Champagne flavored jelly beans, and they are also a shimmery white color. The white twine is from the Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine bundle.

I chose the pretty poinsettia paper for this box.

Well that is all from me today. Hopefully you can use a simple gift idea like this during this busy holiday season. They would look pretty with some chocolates inside too!
