I am trying to be organized this year with Christmas presents and making all my own gift packaging, and wanted to make some Christmas treat bags for under the tree.
These bags are tall and sized to hold a 125g Lindt chocolate Father Christmas, but they are large enough to hold an abundance of most types of Christmas confectionary or maybe bottled gifts.
I wanted a change from Christmas DSP and it occurred to me that the Broadway Bound DSP could easily double up as Christmas Paper with all those beautiful Metallics.
Love these bags as an alternative, more contemporary take on a Father Christmas style bag.

- Take a piece of DSP that measures 9″ x 10″
- On the SHORT side, score @ 1-3/4″, 4-1/4″, 6″, 8.5″
- On the LONG side, score @ 1-3/4″
Although I’m not a 3D crafter by nature, I absolutely love making my own gift packaging whenever I can.
I wanted to create a lidded box to hold a gorgeous tube of Neals Yard hand cream. The perfect Christmas gift! The Frosted Floral Speciality DSP is just beautiful and the shimmery effect of this wintery floral paper makes it very special to work with.
I also created an insert for the box to hold the tube in place.
I decorated my box using the gorgeous label Dies from the Frosted Bouquet framelits Dies along with some silver metallic edged ribbon.
Finally I added a few frosted and clear epoxy droplets. Oh how pretty!
So in love with this paper and I can’t stop using it!
