SEI + 12 Days of Christmas Gifts

    Hey there everyone! Thanks for stopping by today!  SEI is continuing it's 12 Days of Christmas fun. Were actually only doing 6 days--but, hey whatever....hee hee hee. I am excited to share a fun little holiday gift idea that is not only easy to make, but VERY practical! A Christmas Thank You Card Kit using Silver Valley, which is simply perfect for a winter wonderland!

-Use old package labeling for new projects. The tin that holds this set together used to hold chipboard embellishments. The acetate sheets (below) that the card embellishments are adhered to is from some old product packaging too.
-Make sure that you don't adhere the kit label to the lid, otherwise the recipient will have to ruin it to open the kit. The label slides right off in the example.

-When buying kits, people buy them because they generally do not have those supplies at home. To make a fun-filled kit, trim patterned paper strips to the appropriate size and border punch edges so the recipient can add them to their cards. 

 The envelopes were made with cut files from my Silhouette DS. Here are some tips:
-Since the tin is small, re-size your cut file so that the envelopes fit inside the tin.
-The 6" x 6" paper pad is perfect for making these small envelopes.


Here are some tips for the embellishments:
-Make your own embellishments by adhering foam tape to the cardstock stickers and placing them on an acetate sheet. You can also use mount the cardstock stickers to punched patterned paper circles and affix them with foam tape to an acetate sheet.

-Pre-stamp the "Thanks" tags in coordinating colors for easy thank you card making.
-Use clothes pin to hold small trinkets together.
-Gather extra buttons to add to kit that coordinate to your kit's colors.

That's it for me! I hope you enjoy all the other AMAZING projects from the fabulous design team!


Oh, and this too will be at the holiday fair on Dec 8th! If you'd like to buy this, send me an email and I put it aside!
