We’re on the count down to Christmas – it’s just over 6 weeks away! I thought I’d share with you some ideas for your gift-giving, decorating and card-making over the next few weeks to help with all the preparations and last minute requirements that this season brings along with it! Make sure you visit back often to see what I’ve been up to and be inspired with your own Christmas Crafting as well 🙂
I find it’s always good to have some extra gift ideas “up my sleeve” too so that I am not pulling things together at the last minute……….and there is a little more time available to rest and relax in between the craziness and fun 🙂
If you have been creating cards this year…..why not start making up some sets of all occasions cards for your friends and relatives to use throughout the year?
You could make some matching envelopes with the Envelope Punch Board……
and wrap them all into a pretty decorated box like this :
Stampin’ Up!’s Extra-Large Gift Boxes are big enough to fit a candle or photo frame or even a box of chocolates…… if you want to add something extra in with your gift too.
I love this idea as it includes something hand-made, meaningful and useful throughout the whole year.
Here is a list of the stamps, ink,paper, tools and accessories that I’ve used to create my gift above (all available in my online store where you can search for them by item code or description to add to your cart) :
