Final Snowflake Project Forever and Ever!!!!!

This is a little gift for a special third grade girl who keeps writing love notes to Nicholas anonymously. Over the course of about a month, he gave several girls a handwriting test to see if he could figure out who it was. Finally this one fessed up! The agreed they 'liked' each other than ran off to play with their own groups of friends :) Today was their 'Rockin' Christmas' program and they got to hold hands during one of the dance moves...boy does she ever like my Nicholas!!

I'm done making stuff for Christmas! All the gift cards are covered, teachers gifts, friends, parties...I'm DONE! I am sick of snowflakes and I am sick of Dashing paper! Come on Valentines :)

We've got a lot of company coming for Christmas starting Sunday so you probably won't hear from me. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and hope you enjoy the holiday with your families as we are for the first time in many years. God Bless You!

Gift Card Holders

These gift card holders are a different size that I posted earlier. These are so cute and so easy to make! Cardstock is 4 1/4" x 7 3/4". Score at 1 1/2" and 4 3/4". They look like little wallets. I close them with Basic Gray magnets, of course! You know, I am really getting sick of red and green and this Dashing Designer Series paper!

Ghiradelli Chocolate Holders

These are for Nicholas' class party. He wanted something sparkley...too bad you can't see the glitter! These can also be made to hold tea bags. The cover is 3 1/2" x 6 1/2", score vertically at 3" and 3 1/2". Fold on scored lines to form the cover shape. Insert is background paper cut to 5 1/2" x 7"; fold each 5 1/2" edge over about 2"- they will overlap about 1/2". Tape the overlap with adhesive. Fold paper in half, seam side out, so the two shortest edges meet. Use the 1 1/4" circle punch to punch out half a circle from the center of each page end. Center the paper lengthwise on the inside of the cardstock book and punch two 1/16" holes through both layers (punch holes about 1" apart). Thread metallic cord through holes and tie in a knot. Attach organdy ribbon to the outside cover and tie closed. Let me know if you need further directions.

Let it Snow
