Gifting Pretty Bookmarks in Your Christmas Cards

Giving a small gift to someone in a Christmas card is an easy way to be remembered all year. I made some bookmarks that can easily be slipped into Christmas cards. I love the uplifting messages also.

Scrapbook paper comes in so many gorgeous colors and patterns, it's a delight to work with. I noticed that many of the papers now have sayings on the separate sheets. I cut these sayings out and used double sided tape to attach them to 4.5" x 6.5" card stock papers folded in half. Then I sewed them up one side so that 2 sides are open and can fit over the book page and mark your page!! Besides that your giftee can be inspired by awesome sayings every time they open their book. Right?All year long.

Here are the 2 little packs of card stock paper I used. I folded each paper in half and sewed down one side.

See the stitching? I sewed them on the sewing machine. I LOVE sewing on paper!! However, you can use double sided tape to secure one side down or glue. Right? It would be just as nice, really.

Here are some of the bookmarks I made and I put "You are my Sunshine" bookmark in with this card.

What a sweet, small and practically FREE gift to send out with your Christmas cards.

Hope you enjoy these and maybe make some. It's really a fun, easy craft and not limited to Christmas, of course.



How to Make a Gold and Pink Garland for Christmas or Anytime

Gold and pink garland for Christmas!

I love pink. Pink is good for anytime and right now I'm into a gold streak also. I cut the circles out of scrapbook paper and attached some paper roses. Punch some holes in the round circles and thread some gold ribbon through them. Voila! Easy..

Here is a picture of the little pink and gold garland on our tree..

I liked it but I cruised around the house looking for other places to put this sweet garland.

Have a wonderful holiday season, everyone.

Happy Thanksgiving also.

Sweet Christmas Tree Treat Boxes

Aren't these Christmas treat boxes cute? I love the way they came out and I hope you do, too.

These are really easy to make. Here's how to make them.

Nice, quick, pretty.

You need a piece of card stock paper 4" x 11".

Fold in half. Make a little crease to show the center of one end. You'll see why in a minute.

Fold the paper as in picture below.

Fold the other side the same way.

Open up the paper. This is what you will  see.

Fold all the sides up as in the picture below.

Fold over in the middle and you will begin to see the "tree".

We need to make a hole at the top with a hold punch.

I threaded through the hole a string for hanging it on a tree and a piece of white lace to make a bow.

I hot glued a piece of narrow white lace zigzagged across the front of the paper tree box like a small garland.

Before tying up the bow and the string hanger put in some individually wrapped candy similar to these cute mints.

Add a little flower on the top of the "tree" and a trunk from burlap or a burlap ribbon like I did. :)

Here are some other fun Christmas projects. Are you making anything for Christmas?
