Hi again! As a cardmaker, Christmas has always been my favorite holiday to create for! I just love whipping up some handmade goodness for friends and relatives, especially for Christmas! Because of the hustle and bustle of this time of year, I am always on the lookout for ways to create those cards and gifts in a short amount of time. Today, I will share with you how I am using the new IF CHRISTmas collection to do just that!
Here are just a couple of the gifties that I am creating this year. Using some patterned paper from the CHRISTmas I have created some quick but oh so cute treat holders!
For this little treat holder, I used a die to cut out a piece of the Greatest Gift paper. (There are a lot of free templates out there for this kind of holder if you don't have a similar die.) The IF CHRISTmas Gift Tags are absolutely perfect for these little gifts! I also added a coordinating IF CHRISTmas Paper Piece.
For the top, I added a coordinating piece of patterned paper and some more Paper Pieces.

One of my very favorite things included in the IF CHRISTmas collection is the 3 x 4 pieces (on the back side of the Borders paper)! They make for some incredibly quick cards! With the fun graphics and colors, all is needed is to add to a card! In fact, all five of these cards were created in under twenty minutes! These would lend themselves to mass production very well! For each card, I chose a coordinating piece of patterned paper for the background and then added some minimal embellishments.
Thanks so much for joining me here today!
