As I told you last week, Stampin’ Up’s Artisan Design Team is on to our October box! For those of you who are unfamiliar, the team gets a box of fabulous SU products to create our projects each month. This month we have a lot to be thankful for because Stampin’ Up has so many beautiful Thanksgiving and fall things. If you have come over from amazing Jeanna, welcome to the next stop. If you are starting here, just continue around using the next buttons until you get back to me.
I mentioned that I would be starting a series of projects using one of the perfectly designed kits from the Holiday Catalog and now you know which one. The Thankful Tablescape Simply Created Kit is just wonderful! Of course it is perfect for its intended use…a tablescape. But my job is to show you what else you can create with it! This week, I’m showing you a packaging idea. I took a standard shirt box (with a present for my dear brother-in-law) and wrapped it in this brown kraft wrapping paper. Now for the fun part! The Birch Paper Ribbon and the Chocolate Chip Paper Ribbon are exactly the right size to wrap around the box (and there are three of each in the kit). All I did then was add a bit of the Natural Trim Ribbon around the box then create a focal embellishment.
I looped the ribbon and cinched it up with some Linen Thread. Then I tucked two of the leaves from the kit underneath. I added a little pine cone on top to finish it off (the pinecone, leaves and bow are attached using hot glue). Now isn’t that a great way to dress up a fall present?! I know…now you need this kit (as if you already didn’t). For the next two weeks I will use the same kit for more projects…I can’t wait!
Now it is time to go visit the awesome Mercedes Weber. You are sure to love what she has for you this week! Make sure hop around the whole loop to take a look at fabulous creations of the whole team…you’ll be happy you did!

So pretty I wouldn’t even unwrap it!
Normally I am a big fan of just tearing into presents…but your brother-in-law had better open this one with extreme care…it’s too pretty to destroy!
This is gorgeous, Jennifer! I really only want that kit for the birch paper and you’re not helping my resolve LOL.
Thanks for feeding my current birch paper addiction with your beautiful present!
Beautiful! I love that birch paper!
What a great gift presentation for a guy (or a girl, for that matter)! I love that birch paper, and your focal point with the pinecone is gorgeous.
Yep, I would cry if they ripped that to shreds opening it. LOVE LOVE the birch paper!
Super clever!!! Really nice!!!!!!
OH MY WORD – I love this and I think that you are genius for thinking of it!!!
I LOVE Brown Paper packaging.. tied up with strings and just a few embellishments! It’s perfect.. if I was given this, I’d be thrilled if it were an empty box inside so I could keep it just the way it is! It’s perfect Jen!
