happy birthday ellie.

One of my favorite crafty people on this entire planet is my friend Ellie, and this week she is throwin herself the biggest, best Birthday Extravaganza Celebration I've ever been lucky enough to be a part of ;] All week long there are sponsors getting together to help throw her a wonderful birthday bash here on the web, and we want you to be a part of it! 

For my post, I am showing off some products in my online shop, which had it's grand opening yesterday! In case you missed it, make sure to go here to visit Forever Young & Crafty! Because I know giving & receiving packages are a HUGE part of birthdays, and with the upcoming holidays, I decided to use my Holly Days embellie kit to show you how to make the most of the gifts you give. Why not show the world just how crafty you are with cute embellishments on your wrapping?

Brown paper packaging, tied up with string can definitely bring some crafty cute into your Christmas gifts! I stitched these Jillibean soup punches to make a garland that I wrapped around the entire box, added some of the red twine to the Merry cardstock tag and it's all set for a gift to be put in it & sent on it's way!

I am so excited to be sharing my online shop with you, and bring unique new items to you via my shop! The products used in today's post are also available as one of my kits in the shop, perfect for those holiday gifts you've got coming up! One of you will WIN a $20 Forever Young & Crafty shop credit, find out more details on Ellie's blog here. Happy Birthday Ellie!!!! xoxo
