CHRISTMAS IS COMING!

Are you ready?  If you wait to the last minute, like I usually do, you have 92 days left!  "We" still have a bit of time to get crafty though.  Take a look at this little quickie gift card holder/bag I made.



Here's my template.




I cut and scored plain white cardstock then punched the top with the Fiskars Threading Water border punch.  Next, I stamped snowflakes (Making Memories acrylic stamps) with Colorbox silver pigment ink.  Once the ink was dry, I added Terrifically Tacky tape strips as indicated on the template and assembled.  For the ribbon handle, I punched holes with a hand punch and threaded Heidi Grace pink velvet ribbon through the holes.  I knotted the ends of the ribbon to hold the handle in place.

The tag is just a little rectangle of scrap white cardstock, folded in half, with a snowflake stamped on top.

I'm looking forward to using this silver ink on navy blue cardstock and gold ink on dark green and maroon cardstock.  The possibilities are only limited to your imagination!

Thank you for checking in and best wishes for all your holiday projects.  Until next time, my stamps are calling!
