Small Gift Containers

I know that the holiday season has come to a close, but that doesn't mean that you won't be wrapping gifts again sometime soon. I thought it would be good to share a few ways to spruce up gift cards {or cash gifts} with hand crafted containers.


This is a gift bag made with papers from Echo Park's "Sweet Summertime" collection and The Twinery's beautiful Peapod twine. Peapod was one of the first colors of Twinery twine that I owned and is one of my favorites.
{Who am I kidding? They are ALL my favorites!}

This bag is the perfect size to hold gift cards or cash - and would also be great for other small gifts. {You could arrange a gift basket using some brightly colored mugs and fill this handmade gift bag with a few tea bags or cocoa packets.}

This gift box & bag set was created using Echo Park's "A Walk In The Park" collection papers and The Twinery's Caribbean twine.

The box is a basic box shape just the right size for a gift card or cash, but would also be the perfect size to hold a smaller gift such as jewelry.

If you don't add many dimensional embellishments to the gift box you can tuck it into it's own matching bag. {The bag is the same size as the bag made from the Sweet Summertime collection.}





This Gift Card Topper Bag is made using Echo Park papers from the "Life Is Good" collection. I love these trendy shades of teal, pink, brown, and green. It is is finished off with some fabulous Pink Sorbet twine from The Twinery.

This container is the perfect size for a gift card or cash.
