Wow, long time, no blogging~~ been pretty wrapped up in life around here, but it’s slowly getting back to normal and with the Holiday Season, it’s time to get some creative mo-jo flowing! So when I was checking around the scrappy blogs I came upon this very cute Advent Calendar. Loved it!! So I pulled out my kraft card stock, envelope templates and tape runner. While making the envelopes, I had in mind a special girlfriend and got to thinking of what I would be putting in the envelopes for her. Chocolate is nice, but I wanted to include things that were sure to put a smile on her face. So I pulled out some paper lunch bags to have for larger items. Here’s the enevies before decorating
I went through my stash and found this DCWV Christmas kit. Not sure if this is from last year or the year before, but it worked great!
Two nights worth of choosing patterns, punching and gluing, here was my finished project
As you can see, I put my envies in a wooden box I picked up at Walmart. This was much better to do instead of the binder ring simply because of the bulky lunch bags. Because I needed to deliver this today, I didn’t embellish the box, just wrapped some twine around it. I texted her to make sure she knew that on her front porch was a little Holiday Surprise for her. I hope she finds some of that Holiday Sparkle that we all enjoyed when we were kids. I would say some of the things included, but if she reads this………..
It’s Dec. 1st already and I know the Holidays came up on me super fast. Here’s to a wonderful month of happy times and making happy memories!
So glad to be back scrapping and creating and blogging! Thanks for taking a peek here!
