Cards, cards, cards! And a gift tag.
Have you seen the Christmas Extra Large punch from the Ideas Book and Catalogue? I love it. It is so versatile. I no longer need to buy tags for my gifts at Christmas when I have that punch! Here I have shown you a little tag made by folding cardstock in half and punching the bauble shape so that the fold line becomes the hinge for the tag, and I can write my message inside the tag. Punch designer paper, a stamped image or both and add them to the front of your tag, punch a hole in the top of it and thread it with ribbon or cord, and you have a lovely little gift tag for someone special. I added a punched circle of Whisper White to the inside of this tag so I could write something that could easily be seen.
How are your Christmas preparations going in these last few days before the big event? I am sending out my last cards today and am wrapping some gifts to be delivered on Christmas Day itself. The it will be on to the baking, of course!
(PS: Our greatest Christmas gift has already been given to us from God. The whole reason for the Christmas season is to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Saviour. I am so thankful for the gift I already have from Him and hope you have it too. Merry Christmas!)
