Packaging...or something like that


Well today at notimetostamp it's all about packaging ( don't know if that's the right spelling) and as far as packing something I sure can do that lately. I've been packing on the pounds and must really look into a recycled new body. BUT for now let's play the challenge. I made up my own paper to cover this CD container. Found this stamp in the dollar bin at my pal Mike's place and you have to admit he does have some great buys in those bins. I embossed in white on bright red cs and just added a bow ( double bowed with the Bow Easy),and to finish it off, did my tag with the same stamp using red ink, and added a few blingers. The little merry phrase is from Morning Star Co. Easy peasy and there you have it.
Remember to head over to DD's and wish her a Happy Birthday as I said in the post below. Have a great weekend and see you next time.

What a bargain you found in that $1 bin!! That's my favorite place to rummage, but I hate when they put all the good stuff on the bottom where I can't scope it all out!! LOL This is very striking and fabulous in the red & white combo, and the tag is gorgeous too! Awesome packaging Pat!! Have a wonderful weekend :)

Drool and Slobber! This is STUNNING! That bow is scrumptious and how come when I go to the $1 bin at Mike's , there's never nothin' but crap in it??? Or maybe I just don't have the "vision" to see the possibilities like you do. Hope you're having a good weekend.
