I have been a busy girl this season, and here are some of my Christmas items that I made. The first one isn't my invention, I saw the concept on YouTube and went "Aaah! How perfect for gift giving!" and added my own spin in terms of decorations and the look of the box. A week and a few all nighters later I was finished with this mammoth project. I had made a total of 29 gift cards...
My husband surprised his co-workers in the office with the cards and some sweet stuff I had baked the night before, and they all loved the gifts. Probably the most elaborate I have made to date, But they are so pretty to give and, of course, receive.
Lots and lots of steps went into making these boxes, from cutting out the individual decorations to accurately measuring and cutting out the box top and bottom to cutting out the box cover and embossing the front cover of the card box. I had fun, though, I don't ever make anything that I don't enjoy making.
Then I also decided to make some snowflake cards, and I chose a layered snowflake which I put together with dies and punches of different sizes and material. Just look at all the different cards I made with the same layered snow flake!
The bottom one is a WOW (White On White) card, again with glitter paper as accent. Very elegant, with stapled insert, as with all my cards. The envelopes are also hand made and custom fit for just these cards.
