Rubber stamping, scrapbooking, card-making and other paper crafts

November 27, 2009


Well, hello there strangers. Actually, I guess I'm the one who has been a "stranger" around here! hehe I think now might be a good time to share some Holiday gift ideas with you. This Stampin' Up! Matchbox XL Die makes an adorable little box and cover. The die provides a punched out and scored template which can be folded into a box. It also provides three different tag shapes which can be stamped and placed on top of the box cover, which is also scored and cut to size. Just some simple folds and a stamp here and there and VOILA!... a great little gift!

There are lots of different looks you can create using different types of Designer Series Paper and card stock. Maybe you could enclose a small piece of jewelry, some matching mini note cards, or some candy, like I did in the next photo.

Hershey's Mini Nuggets are wrapped with a 1" x 3" piece of Designer Series Paper which is adhered in the back. This is a cute last-minute gift idea for neighbors who stop by unexpectedly, or a nice treat for a teacher.

Check back often during the next couple of weeks for more helpful hints on how to be prepared for those last minute holiday gift needs.
