Thanksgiving Packaging - Gobble, gobble!

With Thanksgiving just a couple of weeks away (at least for us Canadians!) we thought we would offer up some holiday packaging ideas-

Food items always make a nice hostess gift. Bake, or purchase, some cookies, squares or cupcakes. Place them in one of our plain natural coloured gift boxes. Then, wrap the box in a piece of leaf patterned cello wrap just as you would wrap up a gift basket.

Tie some co-ordinating fall coloured Wraphia ribbon and add one of our new holiday gift tags.

For this little truffle box favour, which also dresses up your holiday table, we used a plain natural coloured box again but this time we wrapped in the fall leaf patterned cello as if it were gift wrap.
Add a little sheer ribbon tied in a simple shoelace bow. Don't forget to add the gift tag!

This time we tried a jewellery box as our table favour; just remove the cotton insert and place 4 truffles, a large cookie or even an assortment of nuts. For some added colour and texture, we banded the box with a strip of handmade paper.

I hope this has inspired you to try something a bit festive for your Thanksgiving packaging!

Gobble, gobble!
