Hi! I'm part of a group of fellow crafters who love to create and share their work. We visit each other's blogs and share our love! Everyone works hard to be creative and gosh knows we spend enough on supplies to be creative! Or, am I the only one?? My friends call me Hobby Lobby North! Anyway, I've used the Close to My Heart stamp of the month to make these two cards. The top one uses last year's holiday paper but I just love the stripes! I made the ornament so it could be untied and hung on a tree or other place in someone's home. 


This one is a packet for Hot Chocolate! It's 5 x 11 inches, scored at 2 and 7 on the long side, and 1/2 inch on the short sides down the length. I cut the top scores off on 4 sides, then angled the middle pieces that were left to reduce bulk when folding. Folded up the bottom, adhered that, then used my corner rounder to round the top edges, folded it down, and after adding the hot chocolate, used a sticker to shut the packet. I stamped the cute little polar bear, and a Merry Merry Christmas sentiment. These would be perfect, and easy for an office gift for fellow co-workers. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
