Miu Miu Style Wrapping + DIY Glitter Labels

November 14, 2011

I think many a blogger/designer/fashionista was stunned when these glitter Miu Miu booties from the fall 2011 collection debuted a while back. So far, I’ve seen painted nails and a cake inspired by these amazing shoes. The silver and gold glitter screams holiday and cheer to me, and so felt inspired to experiment with some packaging ideas.

I had some gray, round Paper Source labels on hand that I coated with spray mount, then sprinkled with gold Martha Stewart Fine Glitter. I did the spraying and sprinkling in a very large paper shopping bag to keep the mess in check. So that my round labels would be easier to pull off, I went ahead and removed the ‘negative’ label area.

And I punched these silver medallions out of silver glitter scrapbook paper and tied off with velvet ribbon.

    Yes, those shoes are indeed inspirational!

    I’m loving your wrapping ideas. I’m hoping to get some pretty presents under the tree this year.

    Never thought about using a large paper bag to spray paint small things — brilliant…

    That is gorgeous! Ah! And the nails and the cake… how do you find these things?

    Very lovely packaging! Where did you find that mustard velvet ribbon?

    I love this DIY – so pretty and smart!

    Thank you Stephanie! I had to order the 9mm velvet ribbon from M&J Trimming (colors gold and light coral) since the craft/fabric offerings near me are grossly lacking. A little pricey because there is a 5yd minimum, but hopefully you’ll be able to find something local!

    However, slowing down of system is not always of low RAM space, it is because of accumulation of junk files
    also. Do not make the article a sales letter. Recently
    I wrote a travel article that was picked up by several major International tour companies and enjoyed a month of exposure as their featured article of
    the month.
