Cute Christmas Gift Card Holder

I decided to make some Gift Card Holders for my next craft fair on Dec. 5th.  These are so cute and easy to make!

Christmas Gift Card Holder

Remove the belly band and check out the inside…

Christmas Gift Card Inside


It measures 3″ x 4 1/4″ so I just pulled out my Envelope Punch Board and made the perfect envelope for it.

I’m sure I’ll be using this design for all occasions!  Let me know if you need directions 🙂

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends!

Kristi’s Baby Sprinkle

I’d like to share some photos with you of my daughter Kristi’s Baby Sprinkle.  Her dear friend (an event planner) hosted this absolutely fantastic event for Kristi at my home.  My upline, Peggy Noe, made the spirals for the Stampin’ Up banner I made with my new grandaughters name.  Check out the theme of Mason jars – for drinks, fruit and pink lemonade.  As one guest stated…”it’s like Pinterest on steroids”!  Enjoy!

Candy Nuggets Box

Candy Nugget BoxThis is a little box I am going to sell at a craft fair.  It holds 7 chocolate Nuggets and they are so much fun to make.  We made them at my class on Wednesday.  Thanks to Connie Stewart for the idea.

Candy Nugget Box 8


Candy Nugget Box 1


Candy Nugget Box 2

To make the box:

One sheet of 8 1/2″ x 11″ will make 2 boxes.  Using 5 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of cardstock,  on long side score at 3/4″ on both ends.  On the short side score at 3/4″ & 2 1/4″ on both ends.  Snip on score lines on the short side and using sticky strip or Tombo Liquid Glue form into box.  Tip:  for easier opening, punch 1/3 of a 1″ circle punch on front of top.  See photo.  Decorate as you wish.  You can see that I used some DSP and the Gift Bow Bigz L Die (129977) to decorate one of mine.  Super easy, no fail and fun!
