Good morning - It's Monday! I am looking forward to a new week, that will be much better then the last - thinking positive! HE HE :)
This morning I am working on our LNS challenge - here's the details of our challenge for this week!
Challenge #45, brought to you by Tiffany and Carole’Anne
Going along side with Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Gift Giving Guide we want to challenge you to come up with great gift giving ideas to showcase all of our wonderful products for this Holiday Season. You can show us how you plan on wrapping your gifts, what you plan on making for your gifts and/or how you want to address your gifts for all your Gift Giving this Holiday Season.
I think this is going to be a great way to start some fabulous Christmas gifts!
So I had seen a fun tutorial on Splitcoast for a Match Box Candy holder...........
I used that idea and ran with it. I only really used the idea, cause it did not really turn out the size of the original, I also redesigned the inside. My thought was to create a Matchbox GIFT CARD holder that would also have a litte card inside.
Tomorow I am going to take it one step further and make a pretty little box for it, cause my friend Penny showed me how she did one and I think that will the perfect way to package this little gift card holder.
sooooooooooooo here is the orginal tutorial and then I will step you thru what I did!
Kay, I started with one of favorite papers of this season!
Stampin Up has some really nice designer paper this year. I love the feel of the velvet on the Christmas Cocoa paper! I started with this size
so I redid it one more time he he :)
I decided to start with a piece of card stock cut to: 11.25'' x 3.5''
which made my match box size 5.25'' x 3.25'' - perfect for the gift card.
Do you think you would like me to do the complete tutorial on this tomorrow?? Let me know - if you would - Then I will do it for you!!!
