seventh day of christmas: holiday gift card holders


Hello friends! Happy Eighth Day of Christmas! I love giving gift cards for the holidays because they allow the receiver to pick out what they get, which often ends up being something they might not get for themselves otherwise. But, I worry that when I give them as a gift, it might seem like not much effort went into it. My solution? Make some pretty gift card packaging!

thanksgiving hostess gift idea

Hello friends! Today I want to share a cute and practical project idea to help stretch your crafting budget. This year I collected lots of adorable Halloween papers and embellishments thinking I would use all of them, of course. How’s my project list coming? I think it’s safe to say I have a bit more Halloween product leftover than I had planned, LOL!
Don’t put those Halloween collections away quite yet. You can still put them to good use over the next few weeks so you can get a bit more mileage out of them even if Halloween is over. Check out these Thanksgiving hostess gifts I made with my some...wait for it...Halloween papers!
