CSS Blog Hop

Hi there, I am so happy that you have decided to join me and some of my pals from the Gina K. Designs CSS Alumni Design Team as we take you on a journey through our Treasure Chest.

Tonight we have dug into the treasure chest looking for lots of wonderful Holiday Treat Holders using either a Christmas or New Year's theme.  We hope you will find some great ideas for creating sweet little gifts for the special people in your life.

You should have arrived at my blog from Tera's blog, but if you didn't you can go back to StampTV and start from the beginning.  



My little treat holders are fast and easy to make.  I started with a 6" x 8" piece of print cardstock and folded it in half to create a 3" x 4" pouch.  Add strong adhesive (I used Scor-tape) to the bottom (3") and the side (4").  You should have a pouch with a 3" opening at the top.  I used stamps from the GKD Winter Mittens set to create the decorative piece on the front of each pouch.  Embellish with your favorite ribbons and trims. 
 See, I told you they were fast and easy! =)

Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (December 13), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and that person will receive a huge grab bag of fabulous Gina K. Designs Stamps! 
 Free stamps = Christmas Happiness!

While I am thrilled that you stopped by for a visit, I am going to send you on your way to Lori's blog so that you can check out her amazing creation.
