The first is in a cellophane bag with a topper...
The second way is in clear, sturdy quart sized plastic containers. The little owl is from a Whippersnapper set by Anna Wight. I used paper piecing to give him a Christmas striped scarf!
I always need one more gift so I have some gift card/ check holders ready. This year I made some Z shaped cards. I like this design because there is room for a sentiment and a little pocket that holds the gift card or check securely. For this one I used a sentiment stamp and surrounded it with the holly and berries from the Stampin' Up set Watercolor Winter. The snowflakes were made with a die from Impression Obsession. It's my favorite, the snowflakes are beautiful and intricate but small enough to fit perfectly on a card!
This is what the card looks like opened. I put a ribbon and bow on the pocket to make it look like a little gift package!
For the second card I used a funny stamp from Eat Cake Graphics. I just love the look on the little boy's face! It makes me laugh every time I look at it!
Here is what the card looks like opened...
I hope you got all of your crafting done in time without the stress that sometimes comes with it and I hope that you had a delightful holiday!!
