Easy wrapping for small gifts.

Happy Friday!  Did you have a good Thanksgiving?  We had a nice time over at my sisters yesterday.  Thanksgiving is always the kick off for the holiday season, isn't it?

Today I wanted to share with you an easy way to package up money or a small gift.  I found these pillow boxes at Target, in the dollar spot, there were four in a package.

I wrapped some baker's twine around and then attached a simple embossed tag.

I found the cutest Santa stamp at Michael's and he fits perfectly in a 1 3/4" circle punch!  So after embossing him with silver powder, I punched him out, added a couple of banners and was done! 

These pillow boxes are just shy of being big enough for gift cards, but there are plenty of other gifts that would fit :)

Have you started any of your shopping or wrapping yet?  I have one more gift to pick up, but other than that, I'm done and working on my wrapping here and there.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  I'll see you next week!


  1. i love making pillow boxes and yours are so pefect with the kraft!!!
    love it!!

  2. Those are so cute!
    I wonder if they still have them at Target.
    So glad you had a nice Thanksgiving. We did, too. As for Christmas shopping, I have one present for Erin that I got a really good deal on. Hoping to pick up her second big gift this week. And one or two for Evan.

  3. Cute! I'm actually headed to Target soon - will have to look. Haven't started on Christmas at all yet. I better get crackin'!

  4. These boxes turned out so cute!!! I have not even started shopping yet, but then again I don't have a lot to purchase. So glad that you had a nice Thanksgiving!

  5. These are great!

    I am giving AJ one of those 12 months of dates things that are so popular right now. But for some, I just need to include the date details and money...these would be perfect for packaging it up!

  6. These are so cute, I love when everything is packaged so nicely :)
    I don't think I have seen this stamp at Michael's ?
    Heading to the States soon and will look for these boxes…if I can't find them, I will be texting you again, teehee.

  7. These look so great! That is a great stamp! I love the little boxes too. So cute!
