Before I left Virginia, I sent a little care-package to a friend. The package contained (starting in the back row, moving clockwise) lip balm, book store gift card, lotion, tea bags, chocolate bar, and more chocolate (in the tin).
I had fun creating all the little holders. The lip balm holder was made by following this template, but I would suggest using the slit punch to make the top and bottom ledges – sorry I couldn’t find a template, just found them in the SCS gallery (wish I had found them before I tried to make the other, lol). The tea bag holder was made by following this template (scroll to the end of the post) that I found at the Scrap Bitz blog.
This is the first ensemble that I’ve put together where I decorated everything. I chose to use snowflake paper from the old Stampin’Up! Holiday Thyme DSP pack. I think I’ve always shied away from doing coordinated gifts because I was afraid it would use all my paper. ALL of these were done with 1 piece of 12×12 DSP and a couple pieces of 8.5 x11 cardstock.
