Last minute gifts

I needed to make some last minute gifts to take away with us, we are going away to hubby's parents and family for Christmas.

I decided on some origami folded gift boxes that will hold some chocolates everyone loves those right?
I found a great You Tube video by Yani  for these boxes they are so easy and quick to make.
Even when you don't have double sided papers, I just folded and glued a 12 by 12 sheet in half wrong sides together for my box lids.

Here is my list of products used.....
Cherry Lynn Doily Die and Fanciful Flourish Die.
Memory Box Whimsy Circle Die.
Marianne Creatable Floral Circle Die

Here are the three I have made.

Gift Tag

Hello.......and Merry Christmas to you all.

I like everyone else have been busy with Christmas preparations and Dr's appointments (for Husband), and not been very good at updating my blog.

Below are a gift tag and two cards I have made using items you can purchase at FatCatsCardCorner, although Kaaren will be closed from the 20th until the 29th of December for the holidays.

For the tag which I just cut out myself I have used the very cute Merry Bear Stampavie Clear UM Stamp and coloured it with copics.

For this next card I have used Marianne Creatables Bike and Open book the leaves are the Cheery Lynn Flourish Leaf Strip Die and the stamp is from Mo's digital Pencil.

This card I have created for a dear online friend who is celebrating her 50th Wedding anniversary on the 21st.
The hearts are spellbinders.
The Lady is the Marianne Creatable Lady Charleston die and the gent. is the from the Lord and Lady die set  
The rolled rose is a  Royal Rose Die Namics die and the smaller roses I made with the medium 6 petal vinca punch. the leaves are another Marianne Creatable die Anja's leaves 1.
The background I embossed with a Fiskars Texture plate and sprayed with glimmer mist.
