I will try to keep this brief since you probably have 101 things to get done today. I know I do! But if you have a few moments to spare, here's a nice way to package your gift cards and money for the holidays. And look, you can hang them on your tree for your loved ones to find!
Die Cutting Machine (click here if you don't have one and find out how to WIN one!!)
Patterned Paper and Chipboard: Eskimo Kisses by Basic Grey
Spellbinders Nestabilities: Petite Scallop Circle and Petite Circle
Misc: Gold Cord, Tab Punch, 3D Dots, SU Cardstock
- Cut a circle in plain cardstock from largest Scallop Circle Nestie.
- Cut 3 circles in patterned paper from your largest Circle Nestie.
- Cut one of the patterned circles in half.
- Adhere one of the halves to the bottom of the other patterned circle (uncut).
- Use glue only on the sides and bottom so that you get a pouch.
- Adhere that circle and the other patterned paper circle to the front and back of your plain cardstock circle.
- Punch tab. Cut small piece of silver cord. Adhere to ornament to form a little hook.
- Decorate the front and/or back as you see fit! I just added a chipboard Santa from the Eskimo Kisses Collection. Isn't he a cutie?!
Cricut. You can find circles on a number of the cartridges. I happened to use the Accent Essentials cartridge for my circles. I cut the plain cardstock at 4 1/2" for one circle. For the patterned paper, I cut 3 patterned paper circles at 4 1/4". Follow the instructions above. Embellish as you wish, easy peasy and a great way to package your gift cards and money this Christmas!
