Last Minute Christmas Gifts

Cards that hold gifts
Christmas Pocket Cards

Here is a quick and easy idea for those smaller generic gifts for family and friends. I had picked up a few items but wanted to create packaging for the Christmas season. It took me about an hour to put these together, which included stamping, cutting and glueing. The most difficult part was tying the bows!

Using some plain cardstock from my never-ending pack of partly cut scraps, I started each with a 9 x 7 inch piece, scored to make a 4x5.5 inch "card" with an extra 1/2 inch score on the sides and two 1/2 inch scores on the bottom, trimmed off the bottom which left me with a 1-1/2 inch flap on the bottom front. Then attached that to the back panel. I punched holes on front and back panels to thread ribbon.

You might want to do something fancy, but I chose to create simple silhouette snow globes on the front of each card. These are going to folks who love to spend time skiing and skating. So, the gifts - hand warmers and car freshener!

I purchased the car freshener at our local craft market from Lather & Light. They make beautifully crafted candles and soaps in the most luxurious scents. If you are around, do stop and visit them in downtown Invermere. They also have a website -

p.s. The handwarmers are from Canadian Tire.

Well, I best head outside. The sun is already disappearing, and it will be dark in less than 4 hours!

Wishing you the best of the holiday season!
