I love making jewelry for others. It’s been a hobby of mine for a while now. When its time to give it to the recipients, I’m always looking for pretty packaging.

When I found this tin pan, I knew it would be perfect for the bracelets I was making. Once inside, the tin needed something else. I reached for Altenew’s Hello and Hugs Stamp Set to stamp on the cover.

Here’s how I stamped on the plastic:

For this tin, stamping on the plastic is pretty easy since you can open the tin and press on the inside of the tin.

Place the stamp down on the table, then place the tin on top of the stamp and use your hands and press. Cover the entire area.

Remove the stamp to reveal the stamped image.

If the stamp didn’t stamp all the way through, line the stamp up again.

Re-ink the stamp and press harder in the areas that were missed.

Nicely done.

Happy Holidays and Giveaway!!

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today on the Sweet Stamp Shop sharing another gift packaging.

I’m always looking for different ways to present gifts to people that I care about. I think it gives an added touch to the gift. So thanks to my new blogging friend Nicole from Unity Handmade, who taught me how to make this awesome packaging.

Well today’s gift is for my daughter’s teacher. Teacher’s get so many gifts from their students. Which means teacher’s have to write thank you notes to show their appreciation. So as apart of my daughters gift to her teacher, we included thank you cards.

Now you can just give them the cards wrapped in a nice ribbon or clear box but made a really cute package out of pattern paper that houses the thank you cards.

Take a look:

Happy Holiday 1

Can you image getting a set of cards in this packaging. I love this little box.

Take a look at the opening:

The thank you cards fit so neatly inside of the box. This box holds 4 cards and envelopes.

I used the following stamp set to create my box and cards.

So what do you think? Would you like to receive a set like this? If you leave a comment on the Sweet Stamp Shop blog post by 11:45pm EST, I will pick a lucky winner to receive this set, just in time for the holidays.

You don’t want to miss out on this one!!
