This week we are bringing you TONS of inspiration using the Christmas Cheer collection. I asked our talented designers to focus on fun little projects, and they did not disappoint! We have a fabulous mix of projects to share with you this week, including lots and lots of ideas for gift giving. And seeing as though the holidays can be one of our busiest times of the year, I love that so many of these projects can be created in no time at all.
Christmas Wreath, by Katie Rose.
This is a super simple Christmas wreath that I put together using a wooden wreath from a local craft store and Bella Blvd Christmas Cheer patterned paper. I cut the patterned paper into 1"x6" strips. I then stapled the ends together making a little loop. I then hot glued the loops all around the wooden wreath. I added a ribbon bow for the finishing touch.

Joy Tumbler, by Ashley Marcu.
Gift the gift of coffee with a fun holiday gift wrap. I fixed up this reusable tumbler with a custom coffee sleeve, a few stickers and a tag. Tip: Use a sleeve from your favorite coffee shop as a template. I simply took the coffee shop sleeve apart at the seam, temporarily adhered it to my paper and cut around it.

Merry Gift Card Holder, by Ashley Marcu.
A gift card is always a fun gift to receive. Tuck it in the front of a card so it won't be missed! I used a curved die cut to place a slot on the front of my card, added a sticker sentiment plus a few other stickers to bring a lot of fun to this holiday card!

“Merry Christmas” altered wood block, by Sheri Feypel.
Every now and then I get the idea to alter something. I had a wood block with a saying on it that I was bored with, so I decided to cover it with pretty paper! I used the Christmas Countdown paper line to cover the block. Once that background paper was applied, I used the Paper Pieces to add a sentiment and punched a couple of circles to make ornaments. I then added the Pickle Juice feathers to mimic Christmas tree branches.
