The A Muse Addicts Yahoo group challenge this week was to make something to go with a gift for the holidays, ie: gift tags, gift card holders, gift bags or wrapping paper. We also had a mini challenge on the SCS A Muse Addicts thread to use our Cuttlebugs/Big Shots.
I decided to make tags/little notecards to put on Christmas gifts and just for fun, a little holder for them. I had originally planned on putting all 12 gift tags in the holder, but I didn't make it big enough. I could fit 6 in it, but it bulged out too much and didn't look right, so only 3 really fit nicely in it!! Maybe a little pointless, but I'm not able to make a bigger one right now, so it'll have to do for now!
Here are a few photos of the holder and gift tags. The holder measured 8.25 x 6 and I scored it at 2.75, 5.75, and 6. Then used a rounded ruler to make the scoop out on the inside flap. The gift tags measure 2.5 x 2.5.
I used my Dots and Spots, Swirls, Textile and stitched frames Embossing Folders with my Big Shot machine and punched out the stitched frames with my Marvy Mega scallop square punch.
