Last minute card for my children. The cute graphics are from Contemporary Christmas found on pccrafter.com. I cute the snowflake with my Craft Robo, embellished with a rhinestone, and mounted it with dimensional dots. The photo is an eyeball bender. If you focus on the cutout part of the flake it looks cut out of the card instead of mounted with raised dots.

To jazz up a package, try making tags. They fit nicely in a mint tin. I typed the labels on to sticker paper, trimmed and applied to the tin. Here is the poem I wrote for the back.
All presents are not equal
I really must say
Some are very special
In a very simple way.
Give an extra little touch
To that present you choose,
With a special little tag
Specialmade for you to use.

There is a set of twelve handmade tags using graphics from pccrafter.com. Some of the tags have double sided tape and some have ties. Of course no gift is complete without chocolate. I found this cute chocolate band aid. All of this fits nicely inside the tin.
Here is one of my favorite tags. I have included a PDF template for your use. It fits on a regular 8" x 11" paper as long as you use the boardless print setting.

It is always nice to keep track of what you purchased and what needs to be purchased. Here are the notepads for the Christmas folder below. Warning: I forgot the brads that hold the pockets when I made the notepads, so they were too wide. I had to take the pads apart and trim them since I don't have a fancy pad cutter. I used graphics and font from pccrafter.com. The lines were made with scanned image from the folder paper.

DCWV Christmas paper.
A I folded the outside paper in half and then fourths. I attached a velvet ribbon and a jeweled magnet closure to the front cover. The metal disc is mounted under the ribbon.
The inside striped paper is from the same DCWV Christmas stack. I cut 4 strips 3 3/4" x 9". I liked the inside trimmed an 1/8" smaller in width to make it fold nicer. The pocket is formed by folding 3" up. I embossed the 3" part with Swiss Dot Cuttlebug folder. Then at random I folded down the corners to reveal continuous stripe pattern.
Here is a folder for your Christmas lists: Family List, Friends/Neighbors, Food List, Special Notes. I am just waiting for the pads to dry and will post a picture of the note pads for the inside in a couple of days.
