I’ve been making my own aromatherapy eye pillows inspired by my favorite felines over the past month, and they’ve been the perfect spring sewing project. I especially love working with the fragrant scents of lavender, chamomile and lemon balm. The combination smells SO good. I invite fellow crafters to visit my blog, Adventures In Making, where you can download the free pattern and read a step-by-step tutorial on how to make my ‘Cat Nap’ Eye Pillows.
After whipping up a handful to give as gifts, I decided to create some beautiful packaging to hold my handmade creations. First, I designed my own wrapping paper by turning my watercolor doodles into a pattern in Photoshop and printing it out using my Canon i9900 inkjet printer.
The wrapping paper paired beautifully with Katniss style labels and tags from Evermine. I chose two different colors for the labels, Aruba and Lilac. I also followed this tutorial to whip up a few tissue flower gift toppers for the finishing touch. I can’t wait to give these to my friends and family!
