Two quick Christmas projects with G45 Twelve Days of Christmas!

Every Wednesday at the Flying Unicorn, we have WCYDW, What Can You Do Wednesday, and it always features a new project or technique that you can use in your paper crafting!  I was up yesterday and here's what we did!

It's that busy time of year when we all have too much to do and not enough time to do it in, right?  I always want to handcraft things for my friends but I always run out of time!  Well here's a quick quick gift card holder that you can make in just a few minutes!  I used Graphic 45's Twelve Days of Christmas 8 x 8 paper pad but anything will work!





Add a pretty ribbon to the top and you are finished and on to the next thing on your busy holiday preparations list!


Here's another quick little project to make a gift container from a jar.  Its perfect for a sweet piece of jewelry or maybe some homemade chocolates!  The jar I've used is plastic and it was a soup base jar.  It's about 3 1/2" tall and 11 1/2 around.  You can use anything that has proportions that will look like a drum. I used 1 sheet of 12 x 12 paper from Graphic 45's Twelve Days of Christmas, Drummers Drumming.










Now you have a pretty little drum box that's perfect for a special little gift for some lucky person!

  6. Great ideas. I love the look of your tag. The drum is very attractive and would be a great decorative piece on its own even if it did not contain a gift inside. Thanks for sharing your talent.
