What is ESAD?
ESAD stands for "Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators" and it is an on-line group just for Australian and New Zealand Stampin' Up! demonstrators.
We love what we do & love to share with our customers, friends, and wonderful blog visitors. We also share what we love in our ESAD Demonstrator community, through swaps, challenges, sharing knowledge, ideas & friendship, and we're always there to help and support each other.
So if
You are a Stampin' Up! demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand, then please email me or leave me a comment with your Email address and I'll contact you with information on how to join our wonderful group.

Gift Giving & Packaging
This is my first ever Blog Hop so I sure hope I get it right & get all of the fabulous ladies from ESAD linked in!  Just in case I will put a list of everyone’s blogs at the bottom of this post.
You should have come here from the fabulous Sharlene Meyer.

One of the products that I love in our new Catalogue is our Gift Giving & Packaging Range which you will find on pages 158-160 of the new Catalogue.  You can now give all of your gifts that extra personal touch.  What I really like is that I know longer have to make the box itself – just take it out of the packet & decorate!

For this cute box I have used one of the new Tag a Bag Gift Boxes from p 158 of the new catty.  They are great value at just NZ$14.50 for 8 boxes plus their acetate sleeves. I love the size of these boxes & they are also food safe you can fill them with cookies or other yummies!
To jazz it up a bit I covered each side using the new Modern Melody DSP p 154 & I layered Basic Black 1/8” Taffeta Ribbon onto Whisper White Organza Ribbon p 173.

Notice the Smoky Slate Tag on top?  That is part of Tag a Bag Accessory Kit that contains tags, bakers twine, mini clothes pegs along with a few other things to make gift giving easy.

To make the “flower” on top I used one of our new stamp sets Happy Day on p 112 to stamp onto our Creped Filter Paper on p 156, punched them out with the 1 3/4” Scallop Circle Punch & then held the layers together with a Glimmer Brad on p 170.
Happy Day

Happy Day Stamp Set
NZ$45.95 (W)
NZ$36.95 (C)

Well, I hope you enjoyed your stopover, now you are on your way to visit Gail Kirby.
