The #12daysofholidaygiftwrap.....

It's the 24th of December and this holiday gift wrap train is pulling in to the station!  In fact, we're packing the last two projects into one post.  So it's Day 11 and 12 of the #12daysofholidaygiftwrap!

Let's begin with a couple of food safe treat bags!

I wish I could tell you these bags are filled with some delicious home-made treats but nope.  I've been busy making other things - mostly paper related!  And when I find somewhere that can make something better than I can, I put the guilt aside and patronize them.  So we have Coconut Clusters in one bag, and mini gingersnaps in the other.  To make them food safe, these bags are lined with a plastic transparency material that will melt when you heat emboss your decorative stamping unless you are careful.  You can avoid that by pre-heating your heat tool before aiming it at the embossing powder, and by keeping the tool moving constantly and applying quick, short blasts of heat.

I used the MISTI tool to stamp the snowflakes and trees on the bags themselves, because I knew it would be difficult to get a good impression because of the layers of the bag folds.  I stamped the gold snowflake tag and heat embossed it, as well as adding a white glitter paper snowflake.  The tags are tied with some dotted net material that's quite fun!

The white bag got a gold heat embossed treatment and the addition of some white Minc foiled tags.  And there's those cute little clothespins again!

For the last post of this series, I have a few little gift card boxes wrapped in sheet music.  They're going to our favorite musical neighbors whose names all begin with the wood veneer alphabet letter that is adhered on top of the black glitter paper snowflake and tied up with red cord. 

You can see the supplies used below.

And with that, the #12daysofholidaygiftwrap has come to a close.  I hope there have been some fun ideas that have been useful to you in the last many posts.  Remember, they are all ideas that translate very well to other gift-giving occasions through out the rest of the year.

Have a happy and healthy holiday season and thank you for your continued visits and comments here on the Velvet Lemon blog!
