Pretty Packaging II: Elizabeth's Inspiration

Pretty packaging is everywhere.  Clothing, food, jewelry and more all come wrapped in colorful designs that attract the eye.  They're also a great source of ideas.  Follow along with us as we show how packaging concepts inspire our artwork.

This dimensional packaging instantly spurred inspiration for me.  I loved the patterned design all over the box and decided to make something similar on a smaller scale.

These milk cartons were created in a miniature style for place setting gifts for a luncheon.

White cardstock was randomly blended with Mustard Seed Distress ink.  The flowers were stamped in Shabby Shutter Distress ink and each flower was colored with Tombow Dual Brush Pen #761.

After the pattern was traced on the newly stamped cardstock, the design was trimmed, scored and folded.  After inserting a small gift in each box, the tops were sealed closed.

A small flower and tag were die cut from white cardstock to create personalized tags for each box.  (To coordinate the die cut flower with the background pattern it was colored with the same marker as used above.)

All stamps and dies by Penny Black:  30-343 Floral Fusion, 51-191 Gift Card Pocket

We hope next time you see some pretty packing it inspires your artwork too.
