MFT Creative Challenge - Perfect Packaging

Welcome to the MFT Creative Challenge - Perfect Packaging. The MFT Design Team is on hand to share some fun ideas to creative perfect packaging for any occasion using MFT Die-namics. Complete details for this month's Creative Challenge can be found on the MFT Blog.

I've enlisted the help of the Die-namics Square Pillow Box along with my favorite farm animals from Life's Direction and die cut letters using the Little Lowercase Letters Die-namics.

After cutting each box from Black Licorice card stock, I embossed each animal in white and then rubbed Sweet Tooth ink around each image to create a chalkboard look.

Each tag is a die cut combination of the double ended fishtail flag from Blueprints 12 on one end and the smallish rounded rectangle from Blueprints 13 on the other. Before adhering the die cut letters, I stamped each Kraft tag with stripes from Striped Backgrounds in Sour Apple, Lemon Drop and Orange Fizz to brighten 'em up!

My original idea was to fill each of these boxes with made-from-scratch BBQ rubs, but then I got thinking that they'd also make adorable party favors for a farm themed birthday. Milk Duds in my 'moo' box would be perfect!

You might even include a dry chicken soup mix in this one in a get well soon basket.
 Or how about some chocolate covered bacon in this one? Ü

I hope you've enjoyed my Creative Challenge - Perfect Packaging and are inspired to use your favorite MFT stamps and Die-namics to create personalized packaging for your next occasion! Below are direct links to all MFT products used. Thanks for stopping by.

MFT Wednesday Stamp Club - HB2U!

Hi there, and welcome to this week's Wednesday Stamp Club (WSC) sketch challenge post. I've used this week's sketch (#168) for a boy birthday card for one of George's classmates, and I think the two worlds collided nicely, which always make me a happy camper!

I pulled from a few different stamp sets - Lollipop Additions Birthday, Striped Background (perfect for boys and everything else), and Birthday Greetings. The smallest star is from Primitive Pumpkins, but I think it was misplaced in another of my MFT stamp sets...that ever happen to you?!

I went around and around in my head trying to conjure up the 'perfect' 6 year old/boy color combo and came up with Blu Raspberry + Orange Fizz + Kraft + Steel Grey. What'd ya think? I sorta like it - not too young, not too old.

Inside are more stars stamped in my color scheme, and I even used the negative circle from the open circle (ring) on the card front.

Stop on over to the MFT Blog for complete WSC details, full sketch reveal and links to everyone playin' along. Remember - you can win MFT cash for playing along too!
