PTI Day 5 Challenge

Today we were supposed to find an inspiration piece on Pinterest for gift packaging or tags.  Well, I found lots of ideas and color ideas, but I didn't use them for this project really.  I had a gift of cards to wrap up for my sister in law, so I needed to create a tag that hinted of what was inside.  So that was my inspiration piece.  I am using a waxed paper bag from Michelle Wooderson's little shop.  I knew those would come in handy sometime.  Inside I have some cards I made using the On The Farm set from PTI.  My sister in law and her husband have several chickens and call their house the Peacock Farm and Inn. So I had to get this set just to make little goodies for them.  The tag reflects their little family of three.  I am trying to send out little RAK's to friends and family all year and this is my first installment.  I love to give gifts.

I have had a very busy day making Valentine's Day treats in my kitchen for our homeschool co-op Valentine party on Tuesday, and I did not think I would get this project done in time to post  (hence the very dark photos since it was at night).  Tomorrow I hope to bust out the egg whites I have had aging in the refrigerator and make a couple of batches of French macarons (lemon filled and hazelnut with chocolate ganache).  Yumm!!  I just took a class a couple of weeks ago on how to make them, and I want to try the technique we learned before I forget.  Valentine's day sweets seemed like a good excuse.  Enjoy the PTI festivities.  I am looking forward to Day 1 of the projects for new products.  Yea.

This package is sooo cute. That set would be a 'must' for someone with farm folk in the family. I love that pink gingham with the kraft and brown. You mentioned cards inside. Are they the same as the packaging design, or our you holding out on us?;) Your friends and family are certainly lucky to have a talented friend like you! Thanks for sharing.
