Snowflakes, Snowflakes, Snowflakes

I've been busy getting ready for the holidays ~ only one
post last week ;(.  Sometimes procrastination pays off apparently,
since now there are five challenges for snow and snowflakes at 
I have been making gift card holders, mostly featuring
snowflakes.  All of the paper used has been from my stash,
a few are older Stampin' Up papers.  I used the We R Memory 
Keepers Envelope Punch Board (which I believe is almost 
identical to Stampin' Up's).  The snowflake is the smallest one
in PTI's Fancy Flake Die Collection;  buttons are also from PTI.
I have made over thirty, mostly to give as gifts at school.  There 
are a lot of ideas on Pinterest for giving wrapping paper and tape
for a neighbor or teacher gift with a cute saying with it ~ 
"Hope you're getting all wrapped up in the spirit of the season!"
I am doing this, and adding tags and gift card holders as well. 
Its fun and practical.

 These are the seven different papers I have used.  Snowflakes are 
perfect for this.  Since to get a regular design straight on the board, 
you have to cut your paper on the diagonal and waste a fair amount 
of paper.


This week the challenge is…
