It’s time to start making that list…and coming up with some creative Christmas gift ideas this year. I thought I’d help you out my sharing two of the projects we made in our annual Creative Christmas Class last week.
Stampin’ Up! has these really great Acetate Card Boxes this holiday season. They are clear card boxes that neatly and safely store your finished cards. Each box holds 5 standard cards plus envelopes and you get 10 boxes in a package.
What other things can you put there besides cards? Hmmm…the themes are endless.
We wrapped Ghirardelli Chocolates and decorated the box like this!
(Original idea from Patti Bennett.)
And 9 rolled wafers fit in one box. (I buy the Pirouline Chocolate Hazelnut Wafers in a big cannister from Costco.) Don’t they look yummy?!
We also sell these adorable treat tubes…
8 of them fit sideways in the Acetate Box. How fun is that?
#144628 Acetate Card Boxes $8.50 (10 boxes)
#144612 Treat Tubes $6.50 (12 plastic tubes and cork stoppers)
This is probably the most inexpensive, yet very practical, gift you can give this year. It is a small notebook made from 1 piece of Designer Series Paper and a few sheets of photocopy paper. That’s it!
You can use your favorite papers to create a million different notebooks. Simply fold each piece in half and use your bone folder to make it really nice and flat.
Here are the measurements for this one, but you can make them any size you want. Just make sure that the photocopy paper is about 1/8″ smaller than your cover.
Cover: 8-1/2″ x 8-1/4″
Photocopy Paper: 5 pieces cut at 8-3/8″ x 8-1/8″
Decorate the front however you like. I just love this saying from the Just Add Text stamp set (#143931) in the Annual Catalogue. I cut it out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits…which I also love!
Remember the Designer Series Paper Sale ends October 31st…Buy 3 get 1 free! You might need to stock up if you are going to make some fun notebooks.
