Christmas Gift Packages - Festival of Trees - photo heavy

Hello blog friends ~

Thought I'd pop a quick post up before I head off to the Hunter Valley.  We are spending the weekend up there and going to A Day on the Green.  Yay, child free, great weather, and no house chores.  Soooo looking forward to it.

Quite some weeks ago I made up a couple of gift packages using the fabulously versatile stamp set Festival of Trees.  I spotted a card on Pinterest by Tamara and tweaked it just a little. Cello boxes are such a great way to gift wrap and look terrific but they're super hard to photograph, particularly for an amateur like me!

The first box uses subtle colours - Pink Pirouette, Pool Party and Calypso Coral.  There are six cards in the package, two of each colour.

The second box uses neutral - Basic Black, Sahara Sand (Melon Mambo) and Crumb Cake (Island Indigo).  Apologies for the over exposure :(


That's it from me. Hope you all have an awesome weekend!


  1. These are gorgeous Patrice! Enjoy your weekend, sounds wonderful :)

  2. Gorgeous! I love the clean lines and the touch of bling. Enjoy your weekend!

  3. This is a lovely gift idea Patrice - my fave is the black, white and gold one but all are beautiful. May I ask where you got the cello boxes from please?

    1. Hi Nanette, I haven't been able to locate you for an email address so I do hope you pop back here to see my response. Thanks for your lovely comment, I had fun putting these cards together. The cello boxes can be purchased from Simon Says Stamp or Papertrey Ink. I've actually purchased from both places and prefer PTI to be honest because they come with lovely little clear stickers to seal the ends. If you need any further clarification please email me at
