ICS Blog Hop Perfectly Packaged



Welcome to our December ICS blog hop!  I hope you have enjoyed the blogs thus far.  Christmas is approaching very fast!  The theme for our hop this month is Perfectly Packaged just in time for the holidays!!

I love giving baked goodies as gifts, so I decided to come up with packaging for one I will be making - zucchini bread! 



The card is using thick Whisper White cardstock for the base, Pacific Point as an accent, and Whisper White front.  Soft Sky, Island Indigo, and Pacific Point were used for the snowflakes from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set and the coordinating punch.  The sentiment is stamped in Memento black ink. 

I thought it would be fun to have a tag to go with the baked gift.  Marina Mist, Island Indigo, Night of Navy, and Pacific Point were used for the snowflakes also with the coordinating punch.  The sentiment is found in the Flurry of Wishes stamp set and the To/From is from the Wondrous Wreath stamp set. 

I have to say that my favorite part was making the packaging for the bread!  


 
It took me five tries to figure out the correct dimensions!  Here are the dimensions and scoring/cutting details.  The cardstock is 7.75" x 6.75" and is scored 2" on each side.  Cut two slits on each side.  I then stamped snowflakes on it using the same stamp set as the tag and card.  To make the container for the bread - fold the corners in first and adhere to the two middle side flaps using tear & tape adhesive.  Our marvelous Stampin' Up! Silver Cording (48 inches) was used to tie the bread into the container and the tag.  


Note: The bread was made using a Wilton pan that has 8 mini loaves.


Thanks for stopping by my post in the ICS blog hop!  The next stop in your hop is Claudia!  
Happy hopping & Merry Christmas!!
