Gilded Gift Boxes & Tags

I love having small thank you gifts around for when someone does something extraordinary for me.  Things like rescue my runaway dog, and bring him home, for instance...

The classic wrapped gift basket gets glammed up with the addition of some gold embossing, and a fun golden gift tag.  Created with Fun Stampers Journey dies.

I recently found these absolutely yummy candles at the dollar store of all places!  They're gorgeous black and gold, and white and gold, glass containers, and the candles smell incredible.  They were perfect for something small for a gift.  I just needed to package them.

I used the Basket Makery die to cut out two baskets (you do not need to cut the handle, so cut your card stock to 8.5" x 8" to fit just over the basket area).  Then I used the Graduated Dots Background Stamp to stamp each flap with clear pigment ink.  (Mask off the other flaps and bottom of the box with Post it notes to keep the stamp from overlapping.)  I applied gold embossing powder and heat set it, before assembling the baskets.

I also die cut two Bread Tags, one of each color.  These also were stamped and heat embossed.  Then I added the Charming Thank You Die Set die cuts, that were cut from Mirror Gold paper.  I set a large clear block on the tags to allow them to dry flat, while I added some kraft color shred, and the candles to the baskets, and put them inside some cello bags.   I tied the cello bags shut tight with some twine (or you could use a rubber band), and then added my bread tag and a bow.

The baskets are super pretty!  Now I've got a couple more things stashed for my dog's next adventure.

Thanks for stopping by!
