I always have fun with these templates and with so many to choose from there is always one to fit your need! With the holidays approaching I am always trying to find little gift boxes and bags to tuck treats inside.


The first template I worked with was the framed box template. This template comes with three options: rectangle, heart or star cut out in the front. Here I eliminated the inner flap and added a clear sheet for displaying the little treats I tucked away inside. Additional supplies include MelJen's Design this week's freebie image and Whimsie Doodles tag from this month's release.Perfect size for three tubes of glitter, chapstick or a handmade ornament.

I worked with this template last week and just love the size for little party favors. If you are having a holiday get together this year and looking for favors...an ornament is always a great gift from the heart!

This button wreath ornament was created by using instructions over at Martha Stewart. There are little bells attached to the ribbon, but they are currently hiding :) More holiday gift ideas to come as I am having fun creating this year. I have dedicated two days each week to making gifts and my holiday cards. Can't wait to share them with you!

Have a great hop, stay tuned for the winners and don't forget to join in the fun and leave a comment here!
