Day 10 - Gift Giving

I have lots of card-making friends and the one thing I know we all share is our tendency to hoard our scraps.  Yes... you know you do too!
Every now and then I like to pull out my scraps and try to create something with them.  One good idea is to make cards that look like little Christmas packages.  It only takes a few squares of patterned paper and cardstock, a length of ribbon and a tag to create a great card that can even be personalised to a particular family or individual.  If you're feeling particularly eco-conscious, you can even recycle those old tags you've been saving. 
 

YOUR TURN: Make some Christmas packages to embellish the front of your card.  They can be any size or shape you like... and don't forget to add a tag!

Of course it's okay Annie, go right ahead. Thankfully I don't have quite as many scraps as you, but I do clear them out pretty regularly. Kindys and schools are always happy to have pretty scraps of paper for their crafts. I hate throwing it out but it does get to the point where you just have too much. Donating it is a guilt free way of cutting down the clutter.
Cheers,
Beccy
