Hold on to your hats and glasses. I’ve got cool tools and punny printables all in one post today. I’m using the amazing We R Memory Keepers Fuse tool to create custom gift packaging – and of course I have a few free punny printables to dress up those packages.
I’ve teamed up with my girl, Kristen of K.Becca to bring you the best printables you ever did lay your eyes on…because if you don’t already know, I am a huge fan of sassy crafties. So without further adieu, let’s get this show on the road!
You’re gonna need:
- the We R Memory Keepers Fiskars Tool. It’s a tool that heats up and basically creates permanets welds in plastic sheets, so you can use it to create customized pockets on scrapbook page layouts. That is, of course, unless you’re me. If you’re me, then you use the Fuse to weld those plastic sheets into perfect little packages filled with Christmas cookies.
- A ruler or straight edge
- a protective mat so you don’t damage your work surface
- a plastic page protector. You can use any plastic page protector – you can usually find them at the craft store in the scrapbook section.
- free Holiday Gift Tag printable by K.Becca
- Cut the plastic sheet to create one flat piece of plastic. Fold it in half then use the ruler and heated fuse tool to seal the open edge.
- Flatten the sheet so that the seam is in the back. Then use the Fuse tool to seal one of the open edges.
- Fill the baggie with treats then seal the other end. Now…for those of you who think I’m nuts for using plastic page protectors for food packaging, here’s my disclaimer: I have no idea if this is food safe. No clue…but considering I can leave a Bic Mac on a counter for 3 years and it will look exactly the same without an ounce of mold, I figure we have bigger public health concerns than me and my plastic page protector packaging. What can I say…I like to live on the edge.
- Once you’ve sealed off both sides of the packaging, it’s ready to gift, which means it’s ready for a gift tag! I’ve got you covered!
Now, did you just die from cuteness? I mean, these labels are about as cute as a box of puppies and almost as funny as when Miss South Carolina schooled us on maps. Almost. She still wins.
