Christmas Gifts or Gift Holders


Today over at Going Grey with Scrap-creations our theme is a Christmas or Christmas Gift Holder.  I created a bunch of these for some craft fairs with the idea in mind that they would make some great teacher's gifts.  Unfortunately/fortunately, they didn't sell at all but I've got some great gifts for my kid's teachers this year.

I created a card caddy that I had seen on my friend Lisa's website.  I changed up a few of the pieces on the inside of it.  I wanted to include a few different elements to include some things the recipient could use for themselves or on gifts they gave away.


The caddy has three pockets to it, was super easy to put together and allowed me to use up a lot of my scrap papers.  I included in the front pocket 4 small 3 x 3 cards.  I used the Verve stamp set Blessings.


In the middle of the caddy, I included a covered notebook, perfect for teachers.


The last component I added to the caddy was a covered post it note holder with a pen holder on top.  I found this tutorial on Kimberly Crawford's blog.

Come join us over at Going Grey with Scrap-creations, would love to see what type of gifts you may be giving this year or a gift holder.
