Need a clever way to package a gift? Make Stacking Gift Boxes for Gift Packaging. Try using hand painted and decorated stacking boxes. The possibilities on decorating them are endless and they can be used again as decor. Oh, Baby!
After making a card using www.duetica.com, I realized that I really liked the Saxi font so much I wanted to use it on this packaging for a baby gift. I used Saxi A00 and E40 for a great look. The packaging can double as storage or decorations in the room. I painted wood canisters in buttermilk and I used shades purple and brown in the accents to accompany. When it came time to print the font, I did so on clear sticker paper in dark brown. (You can get sticker paper in the office supply section of the store or in a craft store.) I did this so the canister could be usable and could easily be wiped off. She does not know the gender of the baby and has not decided on a baby name so I told her once she did I would print her out a single monogram for the top and monogramed initials for the middle set. The flower accents are from Prima and the paper is Core’dinations. The foiled stems are Design Adhesives and Designer Foil from Clearsnap.
