Gift Box Bows

I had a few Etsy sales last week.  My sister’s friend and coworker ordered 3 pairs of earrings.  One of which I had posted just an hour before.  It is always nice to think that something you made, only lasted an hour on the market!  Now, I did not have to ship the orders.  I gave them to my sister and she took them to her friend.  I decided to use some of the creative inspiration I have seen all over bloggyland.  I made some bows for the gift boxes I bought. 

We headed to Michael’s.  I bought 5 sheets of scrapbook paper.  It was 5 sheets for $1.  I bought 3 cute and little Chinese take out gift boxes @ .89 cents ea.  My husband thought it would be a neat idea to use an “A” on my packages to represent AliLilly.  I found these ADORABLE sticker letters.  With the 40% off coupon I used, they were $4.  Oh, and there are 312 letters.  Yes, for all you mathies that is 12 each!  I found a cute pack of buttons for $2. I had some left over crepe paper. 

So, I got busy.  I winged it, remembering different tutorials I have seen here and there online. 

I even went as far as matching the colors of the boxes and bows with the product.  I blame my Mom. Everything was matching and color coordinated growing up!!  I miss my Mommy! 🙁
Seriously, how cute are these!?!
I love the A’s! Great idea Hubby!

These are some practice bows I made from news paper, old scrap paper and crepe paper.  I made these the night before we went to Michael’s.

I got to use of the practice bows for my sister’s boyfriend.  We threw him a Birthday Party at my brother’s house over the weekend.  I made him some hemp bracelets.  I glued some shredded newspaper onto the lid of a gift box. Yes, they both noticed that I used the sports page!
