Two Shades of Pink
Saturday Spotlight Feature: {Two Shades Of Pink}
When it comes to super cute, pretty packaging ideas, it really doesn't get much better than this! Jessica of Two Shades of Pink really got us with her Peppermint & Lace diy packaging ideas. We were first introduced to Jessica via a link party and that is when we discovered her beautiful blog and just how creative Jessica is!

Two Shades of Pink

Getting to know Jessica.....

  I am so happy you have peeked in to my little craft spot! I adore all kinds of crafting but especially hand sewing, anything to do with fabric, felt, yarn, and paper. My very first loves are my sweet husband, my girls, but most of all, my Jesus. I am so blessed you are here.

Two Shades of Pink

This sweet little bag is made from waxed tissue paper and embellished with bakers twine.

Jessica added some bakers twine and stuffed it with a little doily...
How cute is this?! Wouldn't you love receiving it alone!

This little ruffle bow Jessica made with polka dot wrapping paper and the striped wax paper from above.  Jessica decoupaged a little wood bead with it and wrapped it around the box several times with baker's twine. Love, love, love it all. Every detail.

Jessica shows you the before and after on this project. Jessica spray painted the blue snowman cookie tin white. She decoupaged a button this time and used the favored  twine for a simple and o so festive simple wrap. Her choice of the lace flag embellishment is that little extra attention to detail we all love.

 Have you figured out  what this packaging idea is using?! Yeah. A simple white lunch bag. The top is just folded over with a piece of wrapping paper and clipped closed with two mini clothespins holding a twine bow. Jessica added a little square of scrapbook paper with a glue stick to make a pocket and stuffed it with lace and added a white yarn pom pom on a lollipop stick wrapped with twine. We love these simple yet big statement details we all can do!

Check out how Jessica wrapped a piece of paper around a wooden spool and threaded twine through the whole, tieing it off making a little tassel and tieing that on as a package embellishment! Clever and creative and so darling!

Here's a little bunting Jessica made to wrap around a larger gift like a shirt box made from twine, red felt, the striped wax paper, and lace.  Just so adorable aren't they!

  1. Oh how wonderful! I was actually going through my reader catching up with blogs and saw my blog name and thought..."Did I forget a scheduled post somewhere and it just popped up today?" Then I come in here on your precious blog and see all those kind words about my Peppermint and Lave packaging. Thank you my friend! What encouragement that makes my heart so happy! You blessed me today and I am so thankful for you and this incredibly warm feature.


  2. I LOVE these packaging ideas! The li'l bunting is too cute. Merry Christmas! ~Stevie
