Gift Packaging with PTI

Two posts in one day! I didn't want to fall behind on the daily challenges for PTI's 8th Anniversary so I enjoyed a couple of hours this morning in my craft room playing catch-up! Here's my entry for today's challenge on making a tag and gift bag.


I used the Folded Foodie Tag Die to create my tag. To color it, I smooshed some Blueberry Sky and Winter Wisteria onto a large acrylic stamping block and spritzed it with water. I then pressed the front of the tag onto the block letting the colors absorb into my cardstock and let it dry. I used Rosie Posie using the same colors and Simply Chartreuse for the leaves and added them to the front of my tag finishing it off with another smaller tag which was stamped using a sentiment from SAF 2014 1940's kit.

The inside of the tag was stamped using the same image and colors I used on the front, except that I stamped them off once to create a lighter color value. The "To:" and "From:" is from Painted Poinsettia's.

ETA: Thought I would add a couple other pictures of gift sets that I've made in the past using PTI products since I've never posted them to my blog.

This set was inspired by the lovely and talented Melissa Phillips using the Garden Variety and Vegetable Garden sets. It was was a gift of home made chocolate chip zucchini bread, home made salsa and recipe cards that I gave to a dear friend.


This was a set of cards using Beautiful Blessings and Songbirds that I made for a friend who's ministry is helping others in need.

A small file box to hold the cards

One of the cards and coordinating envelopes. All the cards were the same, but different. There's lot of pictures to this set, so if you're interested I can post them in a future post.

Please leave me a comment if you've stopped by so I'll know you've been here and I can be sure to visit your blog and leave you some love.
Thanks so much for looking! Blessings~ Birgit
