Home For the Holidays BLOG HOP!

Hello, and welcome to my blog!

You should have arrived here from Kate Nolan-Denham's blog. If you're lost and want to start the hop at the beginning, go here. :)

The Robin's Nest and Helmar have teamed up for a BLOG HOP!


I am so excited to share my project with you...

As soon as I heard "holidays" I immediately thought of gift wrapping/packaging...because who doesn't like presents?


I wrapped up this little gift box using supplies from The Robin's Nest and adhesive from Helmar


The paper accordion was made with white snow glitter cardstock with added gold glitter to the edges. I made the white yoyo flower with sheer white material and layered it over a white flower from the white flowers pack. Gold bow and gold ribbon came from the pretties ribbon pack and the gold dew drop can be found here.  The wood snowflake, wooden button, and white tulle were just scrap supplies I had lying around. 

All embellishments were attached with Helmar quick-dry adhesive


Did I mention the giveaway?? If you leave a comment on this post, you have a chance to win a $10 giftcard to The Robin's Nest store! Free stuff right? I know! 
I will post the giveaway winner on November 11. 
There is also a chance to win the grand prize $20 RN gift card over here

Thank you for stopping by my blog today...and good luck!

There are lots of blogs to be visited today (with lots of prizes along the way!), listed here:

  4. Such a beautiful way to decorate a gift Brooke. I have used the same paper today and almost went with a similar rosette based project but changed my mind at the last minute. I love the added gold to the edges and the touch of tulle/netting and the bow. So wonderfully elegant! xx

  28. sweet. I love to do my gift wrapping with a theme each year. This year I'm doing all kraft paper wrapping and am trying to decide on ribbon and bow colours. I was leaning to red, but your white is so elegant with it's touches of gold that maybe I'll go that way...decisions. My tree is turquoise red and silver so maybe I should look there for inspiration... In any case, your white and gold topper is great. Thanks for sharing.
