Handmade Christmas Present Done

Stampin' Card Keeper

I’m excited to have one (of many to come) Handmade Christmas present done!  I can’t tell you who it’s for but I’ll show you what’s inside if you like!

First, let me tell you about the box.  This is a Stampin’ Card Keeper which will be available in the Holiday Mini Catalog beginning tomorrow!  Of course the Card Keeper doesn’t come looking like this.  It’s white.  For this particular box I decided to use DSP from Holly Berry Bouquet pack which is also coming out in the new mini catalog.

Handmade Cards

The recipient of this fun box is going to get 30 handmade cards!  As you can see, this is a comfortable amount of cards to fit the box (these are not overly accessorized cards).  I have so many handmade cards that I’ve made and I’m never going to be able to use all of them so I decided this Christmas I’m going to gift them.  Well, let’s so how many boxes I can actually get done before Christmas now.  I’m sure you’ll be seeing some throughout the coming months!

Today I started work on the class schedule for October – December.  Hopefully I’ll have it done before too long.  When it comes out you’ll see a class for making one of the Card Keeper boxes  It will include the box, decorating the box and getting a start on the cards for inside it.  I hope you’ll watch for the class and mark your calendar to attend!

I’ve been thinking that giving a box as a gift like this doesn’t need to be full of cards.  What about making a box, putting some cards in it and then giving more cards to the person for their birthday, Valentines Day . . . whatever occasion you give them gifts?  There are some people on my list that will probably get boxes like that.  (ie.  My children’s teachers – get a box for Christmas, a pack of cards for Valentines, a pack for teacher appreciation week, a pack at Kindergarten graduation . . . .  It will be practical for them, it’s something I enjoy doing and it won’t break the bank!)  Something to consider!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!
