Cafe Patisserie – Packaging Idea (Greencraft)

Inside the Spring 2018 issue of Stampington & Company’s Greencraft, I was thrilled to have a simple packaging idea, published.
I was inspired by Catherine Moore’s Character Constructions stamps, from the Mannequin Cafe stamp collection.  The simple idea, to re-cycle cardboard packaging into boxes which might contain a cupcake or macaroon, etc.
This is the largest of the boxes – I love this stamp. She is fussy cut then adhered to the Ledger Paper, with her holding a fussy cut cake.
The Ledger Paper was a gift from sweet Dorthe.  It was the perfect paper to adhere to the sides of the painted, re-cycled cardboard packaging.I wanted to add another something to the submission and I happened to have a spotted paper bag, the perfect extra – I could imagine a home baked cookie tucked inside. The  paper bag also tied in with the red spotted bows and red and white twine.
There are many, many reasons why I am passionate about stamping, one of them is the simple transformation of packaging that would otherwise be dumped into the re-cycle bin!  I still dearly miss Stampington’s Greencraft magazine, it was such a great publication to submit to.

    You know I love these Lynne, they are so wonderful with the stamps onto the old ledger, so lovely to see you could use it for something special, and here they fit the French Patisserie theme so lovely. No wonder they ended up in Greencraft – and yes so many of the loved publications have been put to an end, sadly !! xxx
