Hello crafty friends, Martha Lucia here to share with you my package ideas for different kinds of wedding gifts: Certificates, Cheques and Money. These kinds of presents are more common now than ever because the couples want to build their home using their own taste and judgement. Take a look of my three ideas:
My first project is a little bag to put inside gift cards or certificates. I made this using decorated paper from a special wedding collection of papers from 7gyspies, it this Harmony Collection: Social Profile. I cut the bag using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits from Stampin Up and to adhere this I used the Helmar Quickfix Adhesive Runner.
For the decoration I used a sentiment Mr & Mrs from the stamp set Wedding Wishes from Joy Clair. I stamped it with Versamark and then emboss it with Silver Embossing Powder over a circle of card stock.
I glued the decorated half circle with Helmar Craft & Hobby PVA Glue and I finalized the decoration by adding a flower that I pasted with Helmar Premium Craft Glue. As a final touch, I added a strip of mini pearls.
My second project is a package for cheques. I created this using Brown metallic card stock. To create this you will need a piece of card stock of 7"x8", and you will need to score on the short side in 2"and 5". Take a look at my package:
Creating this is very simple. After making the score lines on you paper, just take a punch and cut half of this on one of the sides. I used an oval punch but you can use any form of punch.
Then paste the upper and lower part of the punched side over the center panel of the package. I used the Helmar Craft & Hobby PVA Glue for this.
Cut 2 strips of other colors of card stock of 3-1/2"x7 and 3-3/4"x7". I used Crumb Cake for the first size and Pool Party for the second. Put one piece over the other and paste only the left border. Mark with your paper trimmer a score line in 2" and create a belt around of the package. Secure it with Helmar Craft Hobby PVA Glue. Tie a ribbon around of the belt and to finalize the decoration, you can stamp the sentiment.
I used a combination of two images of the stamp set Song of Solomon and Wedding Sentiments from Joy Clair, stamped with Versamark and then embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. I cut the image with a square framelit and tied it with linen tried.
My third project is a package to carry money. I created this using silver metallic card stock. The size is 7"x8-1/2" with score on the short side in 3-1/2".
I cut this from the entire page of 8-1/2"x11" and I used the leftover paper to create the additional pieces to decorate the front and create the holder part.
Take the leftover piece and cut one piece of 3-1/2" of wide. Use this to decorate the front of the holder. Pass this piece with an embossing folder through the big shot and decorate with a piece of ribbon on the upper part. To paste the ribbon and the entire piece over the holder I used Helmar Craft & Hobby PVA Glue
Create the bow using simbinding ribbom and a piece of lace. Paste over the original piece of ribbon using Helmar Premium Craft Glue and paste a flower using the same adhesive.
Stamp your sentiment and create a layer for this. I used a message from the stamp set Wedding Wishes from Joy Clair. Glue the message using Helmar Quickfix Adhesive Runner.
Cut other piece of 3-1/2" in width from the leftover piece and create two triangles from this. Paste the laterals of these over the interior part of the money holder; these will keep your money in place. To paste these you can use Helmar Quickfix Adhesive Runner.
I hope my packages inspired you. You can use these ideas for any occasion; just change the colors and stamp themes.
Thank you for stopping by. See you soon!
