Black Friday with Taylored Expressions: Perfect Packaging

black Friday hop
Here’s a fun way to beat the headache from all the psycho shoppers (no offense if you were one of them!) out at 4:00 a.m. to get the latest & greatest for Christmas!  Taylored Expressions is having a great sale for you!!

I have to admit I am not much of a shopper in the traditional sense of a gal’s stereotype.  But when it comes to on-line shopping in my favorite stores – well, that is another story!!  No searching for parking, bumping into people or standing in lines!  Taylor has come up with a great sale of 15% off everything in the store  for you along with the debut of one-of-a-kind TE apparel – aprons and t-shirts! The sale lasts through Monday, November 30! 
Taylor asked some of her stamping friends to make a creation using her fabulous Perfect Package card boxes and I am happy to share what I made!  When I visited my hometown of San Leandro, CA (which also happens to be the headquarters of the famous Ghirardelli Factory-most people think it’s San Francisco but it’s not – that is just the biggest black friday hop close upRETAIL store of course because of all the tourists it’s there).  I had to be sure I stopped there and get some chocolates!  You can get great chocolates & gifts for a fraction of the cost at the stores!  I discovered a yummy new Peppermint Bark with Dark Chocolate!  I nabbed a 36-count container (unwrapped) for just $5!   Oh, and I was introduced to the most delicious new flavor of milk chocolate with hazelnuts!  YUM.  My chipboard snowflake is from the Christmas key ingredients (sorry, those are out of stock right now)and I covered it with stardust glitter & a button.   There are mini chipboard snowflakes in stock though.  They are so fun to use!
blac friday inside
I decorated the top of my box with the Home Sweet Home set and sentiment from Season’s Sweetings.  I used the Jolly by Golly paper by Cosmo Cricket.  Here is the simple insides of my box – I put the chocolates inside some wax paper and sealed it with a bird from the Wings of Joy set. 
Feast your eyes on this chocolatey goodness inside!  Look how quickly you can dress up a simple gift with the PERFECT PACKAGING (pun intended) and a few stamps, cardstock & embellishments!
