Christmas Card Blitz 10

Do you have friends or family who love your handmade creations, but they feel they just aren't crafty enough to make anything themselves? Well, they CAN do this - no special supplies required!

Here's a cute little gift set using gift wrapping paper! (Ok, so the wrapping paper I used isn't the prettiest but I used what was on hand at the time.) No special designer paper or stamps were used here. Just some wrapping paper, ribbon, adhesive, and plain cardstock for the card base.

First, wrap your gift and add some ribbon.

Make a matching card with the same wrapping paper. Instead of using my glue under this cheap, thin wrapping paper, I attached it with eyelets in the corners. So I guess I DID use something here that not everybody has. What about brads - - those are easy to attach and don't need any tools to do it. Or staples would work! Or plain ol' double-sided tape (I just didn't have any). Don't gorget to add the ribbon!

I also put a couple strips of the cardstock on the front of the envelope. Although I used my Fiskars Threading Water punch for the scalloped border, an inexpensive pair of decorative edged scissors would work just fine. Or just leave it straight!

I also lined the inside of the envelope with the wrapping paper.

Everything coordinates so nicely, the gift-receiver will be so impressed! But it's really simple, and of course would look much nicer if I'd put more time in to it and also used fancier wrapping paper, LOL!

I have at least one more "Blitz" post - it's a tutorial for a gift card holder (different than the one I posted yesterday!) So stay tuned!

Enjoy your day, Tootles!
