Elf Shoes Christmas Packaging

Last night was our team Fun Stampers Journey Christmas party.  As part of the party we always have a gift exchange, which is all about creating fun, unique, packaging with the products from FSJ.   I love the gift exchange, because it is a fun opportunity for me to create an oversized 3D item, that I might otherwise not make.  



This year, I chose to "create" my own gift bag.  I started with two toilet paper tubes, and covered them with some fun striped paper. Then I built up the bag by adding cardstock and details.


The bag stood about 15" tall at the top of the suspenders.  I chose to block off the bag at the top of the "legs", so the actual bag portion of the packaging was only about 4" tall by 3.5" at the widest part.


I drew out a basic elf shoe template, and cut the shoes by hand.  Then I added some mini jingles for a fun touch.


I realized that the skirt needed some extra something, so I used a white gel pen to add stitching, and cut some pockets that I stamped with some holly for a cute detail.


I think this bag turned out stinkin' cute!  It is tiny, with the configuration that I set it up with, but would easily be made a bit larger, by utilizing the space in the "legs" as well.


After we had dinner and did our gift exchange, we headed across the parking lot to a floral shop, where we learned to make boutonnieres and corsages. 


It was a super fun evening.  I love our team, it's like a fun family.

Thanks for stopping by!

Much love,
