It’s never too late for Christmas

December 19, 2010

Christmas is just 5 days away, I was out grabbing a few last minute items yesterday and the stores are packed. There are tons of people still working on getting ready for the big day. Well, I have a few easy, last minute project ideas that might help you finish up.

This first project is a gift box, it measures 4h x 4w x 4d. It is perfect for anything small and somewhat lightweight. All you need is 1 – 12 x 12 scored at 4 inches on all four sides to create the box, 1-6 x 6 scored at 7/8 inch on all sides to create the lid. That will make the box and all you have left is to decorate it.

This next project is a fun gift bag. You will need 2 – 8-1/2 x 11 scored at 1/2 and 3 inches long ways and 2-1/2 inches from the bottom. Put these two together to create the gift bag.

This tall gift bag is made from 1- 12 x 12 sheet of cardstock, scored at 1/2, 4-1/2, 6-1/4 and 10-1/4 side to side. Then score 1-3/4 from the bottom. Once folded and glued, will create a tall, thin bag perfect for any Secret Santa gift!

Just in case you’re like me and haven’t gotten all of your Christmas cards out, here are a couple samples of what we did in my Christmas Card Stamp-a-Stack a couple months back.
