Paper Sundaes #47


Today's Paper Sundaes Challenge was as follows: With the holidays quickly approaching, we would like you to 'Gift It'! It can be an extra special, over-the-top card, a project, or present. Maybe it could be gift packaging, a tag or a perhaps hand-made gift. Well, I'm not nearly as ready for the holidays as I thought I was when I returned from our little Thanksgiving Vacation in North Carolina!

Soooooo.....today I quickly finished up my Christmas cards, addressed all the envelopes and posted them, gathered and packaged the 4 little gifts I'll be leaving for a co-worker for our Secret Santa exchange, AND got some stuff together for my OTHER Secret Santa girl at Splitcoast Stampers: This set of 4 snowman notecards with a matching holder to hold the cards and the envelopes. Whew! I still have a ton of stuff to get done before hitting the bed tonight!!


Mini Stationery/Card Holder Instructions:
The folder is 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper, layed out in landscape (wider side to side). It is scored vertically at 5 1/2" and horizontally at 2". There is a small notch cut out where the folds meet to decrease the bulkiness of the fold. I sealed the edges of the pockets with Tacky Tape and tied it closed with ribbon. Actually, the cards and envelopes will fit behind the ribbon on the inside of the holder.
