Last Minute Gifts Blog Hop

Welcome to the

We've got some awesome ideas today to create those last minute holiday gifts.

Each of the bloggers has one or more great idea for fabulous, easy gifts that can be 
created at the last minute for those holiday gift giving opportunities.

You may want to create a few of them to have on hand in your "Gift Closet." 
Doesn't everyone have a gift closet full of gifts ready to give? 

We just can't have a hop about gifts and not give a few away, so be sure to hop to
and comment on each of the blogs by Wednesday 12/30/15. 

Theresa at ScrapsByGracie will choose 5 winners. 

One will receive a class of their choice from today's hop sponsor

One will receive this Authentique Paper Set.

One will receive this Graphic 45 Paper Set.

One will receive this great card starter pack handpicked for you by me. 

One will receive this Authentique Create A Card Set

Now on with the projects!

I've got a great and easy (really it's 6 days until Christmas, we need easy!) 
last minute gift idea for you papercrafters out there.  

Even those who aren't papercrafters can make this gift with only a few supplies.

What you need:

1 boxed set of card blanks and envelopes 
(I used the Pearl Dots from Joann)

1 or 2 stamp sets 
(I actually used 3)

1 or more ink colors 
(I used Versa Fine black and Melon Mambo by Stampin' Up and Craft White)

(I used a variety of them, but you can use just one style)

Embellishments *totally optional, by why not!
(I used sequins and twine)

Some kind of adhesive/glue

For my sample today, I created 5 cards for my set, 
but you can do any number per set you'd like.

By making 5 or 6 in a set you can get 3 - 5 gifts out of one box of card blanks.

 Here are close-ups of each card and let me be honest, I am a papercrafter and I've got tons of supplies and tools and gadgets and "STUFF" so I did emboss with embossing powder and my heat gun  most of the sentiments.   

All 5 of these card blanks came in the same pack so there is a lot of opportunity for variety.  
You could create a set for each color, so all the white with white blanks go together as a gift set or like me you can mix and match. 

Have fun! 

Thanks for hopping by today, don't forget to leave a comment to be entered into
the drawing for the 5 great prizes. 

Happy Crafting & 
Merry Christmas

  7. Now why didn't I think of that????

  8. Great idea, I need to make some quick cards.

  9. I have a box where I keep all Christmas-related items.
    As I was going thru it I saw this package of cards and envelopes. They were rectangular cards so I cut them off and embellished them with scraps that I cut off and other items in my stash. They went together so fast and looked great. I'll be doing this again next year. Having a ready-made base is really a help. thanks for sharing. Merry Christmas and happy New Year
