Make this box with the Gift Box Punch Board. It’s one of those extra sizes I added in this expanded chart. Add a tag and a cute little gingerbread man holding shiny peppermint candies. The box is just right to hold a gift card and a few candies.

I used the Triple Banner Punch that can make tags 1″, 1 1/2″, and 2″ wide. The Scallop Tag Topper punch is designed for 2″ wide tags, but I share a tip for making narrower tags.

20151105_162441_resizedThis is my personal Christmas card this year. I just love it! When you pull the ribbon up, the ornament rises and an inside greeting is displayed. There is a pocket that I used for a photo for most. A few people received a gift card in their cards.

You Brighten My Day Mini Treat Bag 2-21-15I enjoyed making this mini treat bag.  It’s got sparkly stars all over it.  My group filled them with chocolate, but you could put note cards or diamonds.  Any of those would brighten my day.

Sweetheart BYOPI just love the B.Y.O.P. stamp set!  It’s made just for giving gift cards.  It’s made to coordinate with the Gift Card Envelop & Trims Thinlits Dies, but I made a few adjustments to make it with the Envelope Punch Board.  The written directions include both versions.  A 1/4 sheet of the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper is a perfect fit for either version.

Well, the good news is that I learned how to edit videos.

The bad news is that I do not do it well yet.

The good news is it’s shorter than it was.

The bad news is that it was way too long to start with.
