Happy Black Friday! Today is the biggest shopping day of the year! Are you an “in store” shopper or a “pajama” shopper? I’m more of a pajama shopper myself, but I know a lot of people who will be banging down the doors of the mall at 3am! Yes….3AM!

For those of you who are “pajama” shoppers, we’ve got a bunch of great deals at the TE Store starting today as well as a Black Friday Blog Hop with many of our talented friends! But if you’re one of those people who was banging down the doors of the mall this morning, don’t worry because our sale goes through Monday, November 3oth! Of course, the earlier you shop, the better the selection!

Before we get to the sale, I want to tell you about our Black Friday Blog Hop! I’m so excited to be doing a blog hop with such an amazing group of talent! Today several TE friends are showcasing projects using the Perfect Package Card Box. The Perfect Package is an exclusive TE product designed specifically to fit a set of A2 cards and envelopes. In addition to storing a set of cards, these make great gift boxes, storage for small embellishments, ink pads, and much more! They’re made from sturdy covered chipboard with a white matte finish. The box has a magnetic closure and it easily folds flat for storage with a tug on the ribbon tab. You can check out my how-to video on the Perfect Package HERE. I challenged all of the blog hop participants to decorate the Perfect Package to hold a set of cards or use it to wrap a holiday gift. I used my Perfect Package as gift wrap for something I’ll be giving this year…one of the new TE shirts! I love these shirts and I know lots of friends and family who will be excited to receive one. And there’s nothing I love more than unique wrapping. The Perfect Package was quick and easy to decorate with Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses patterned paper and some stitched ribbon. You can see the folded shirt fits perfectly inside. I also decorated the inside of the box with the same Basic Grey patterned paper, a Making Memories rubon and metal embellishment. And you can see in the closeup picture that I added red Tiny Twinkles to the berries in the paper and on the metal square. For the tag on the front of the package I used a sentiment from the Tag Treats set and then masked the words and stamped the snowman from Holiday Wonder onto the tag. I used some DMC Memory thread to tie the tag onto the package with a small silver bow. I can hardly wait to start hopping around to see what the rest of these amazing ladies have come up with! I know you won’t want to miss one of them!
