The Christmas music is on. You’re drinking hot chocolate and imagining cozy evenings by the sparkling Christmas tree, and you’re crafting up a holiday storm preparing for the most magical time of year. You’ve labored over the design of your handmade Christmas cards and a torrent of festive product litters your creative space. What to do? What to do?
Get busy creating some pretty gift bags, fabulous gift boxes, and a few cute gift card holders so that when the shopping is done, you’ve got a thoughtful handmade way to present your gift!
Holiday Cards & More: Volume 6 has 18 whole pages with a variety of gift wrapping ideas for everyone on your list.
Check out this pretty gift bag from Kazan Clark. I’m usually quite the traditionalist, but I can’t help but love this soft color palette, the intricate snowflake, and the gathering of cream colored buttons. All it took were a few crafting supplies to make this simple kraft gift bag lovely and elegant.
Next up is a fabby little gift box by Kasia Curry. What teen girl wouldn’t puffy heart a funky necklace, bracelet, or pair of earrings in this stylish little container? You had me at zebra striped star with bling, Kasia!
And finally, to make gift card holders shine, you can do something gorgeous like Ashley Harris did. The lace, the pearls, the pretty stick pin, and that green satin ribbon (that seems to dance at the bottom) quite frankly make my heart sing.
