Gift sets


In the chaos and confusion going on here with my kitchen project, I managed to create some simple cards for Christmas gift.

I got 2 complete sets created, boxed, bowed and ready. I’m pretty thrilled with myself. I really prefer to keep cards like this one or two layers. I would hate for someone to have to pay extra postage to mail something I made. these are simple, one layer cards with a base of 4 x 5 1/4 and use up some more of that stash of envelopes I just had to have!

Each box contains 8 cards, all using SU’s Sincere Salutations for sentiment. I used 4 different sentiments, making 2 of each card. I added some wide ribbon to my boxes and have a couple of gifts made. I will probably include a book of stamps and pretty pen with these to make a complete set.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day filled with all that your heart desires!

These are fantastic! What kind of ribbons are you using? Where did you get the boxes? I love to make my own things like this, but the "packaging" always hangs me up.
