As I started working on Christmas gifts for co-workers and neighbors every gift started with the same gift box but each became filled with different kinds of fun (based on how much I like them)! LOL
Let's be honest we all spend more time on the people we love the most.
All three projects below use just one download, I loved the images in this Sony Soiree Ensemble but I used the recolor tool to make the colors look more like Christmas. It's always so fun to find new ways to use a download!
Box #1 was filled with cookie fun!
These would be perfect for co-workers, bank tellers, and teachers (especially when your child has 7 of them).
This was a quick and easy project - I stamped the tree, the banner and added a photobox circle (see tip below) on an 8 1/2 x 11 page. Then, copied them three times each so I could print 3 boxes at once!
Tip on the Christmas Tree Ring: Insert a photobox (sized to 3.25 inches) and change the shape to a circle so you can easily recolor the christmas tree paper. The Circle Collection Framelits fit perfectly around the inside 1 7/8" and outside 3 5/8" to create a ring for the window in the gift box to peek out!
Box #2 was filled with Handmade Happiness!
Imagine your neighbor coming over with this cute box of tags, a roll of craft wrapping paper and some matching ribbon. You'd do a Happy Dance, right? You bet, because they would have made your holidays a little easier! That's the feeling I'm going for this year. Why don't you try it with me?! I created 6 tags with the same download I had already used on the box for an instant gift ensemble.
Last but not least...
Box #3 was a Labor of Love! (remember, I told you, I spend more time on the ones I love *wink*) This box was something that I knew my friends and family with little one would use.
Since I had already made the box I continued with the Snowy Soiree Ensemble to create 24 mini envelopes filled with Holiday activities.
Tip: Anytime I want to see my "cut lines" on a Hybrid project I use the red guidelines. It also doesn't hurt to add them if you have objects that you want to center. Once I printed both pages with the 24 squares, I cut them and used the punch board to to make little envelopes (see pics below).
I can just see those sweet little faces as they count down the Holidays with family fun activities, like making hot cocoa and a night time adventure filled with Christmas Ligts. The best part is the adults can put the activities in the envelope that will fit their schedule best!
I hope your Holidays are Filled with Fun as you create for the ones who are near and dear to your heart.
