Decorate to Celebrate #40 - Christmas Party

Happy 12/12/12!! I hope you are having a great week :) It's time for another fun challenge at Decorate to Celebrate!! For Challenge #40, we are asking you to create any project to be used as a party decoration (or party supply) for a Christmas Party. Let's celebrate everything wonderful about mistletoe, holly and the Nativity with your table decorations, party banners, pennants, yard signs, cupcakes, party favors and more :)


For my Christmas Party, I created gift card holders.


The gift card holder is a Tim Holtz Pocket Envelope Punch.  The papers are from My Mind's Eye.


A strip of burlap was attached to the front, and then a Spellbinders Nested Pennant Die was stamped with "Christmas Wishes" from JustRite's Deck The Halls stamp set. It was inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The believe charm is from Tim Holtz Idea-ology Philosophy Tags and the hemp fiber is from Michaels.


For the second gift card holder, a Spellbinders Nested Pennant Die was inked with Fired Brick Distress Ink. No Peeking is from K Andrew Designs Winter Wishes stamp set. The 25 is from Tim Holtz Idea-ology Numerals and the crinkle ribbon is from Karen of Little Scrap Pieces.

Now it's your turn...head on over to Decorate to Celebrate to see the amazing projects my design team sisters have created for today's challenge. Then link up your Christmas Party project...I can't wait to see what you create :)

Great project Lisa!!

Karen said...

My sweetest friend, these gift card holders are gorgeous and so perfectly YOU! One of the best things about handmade gifts/cards is that you truly are giving them a piece of your heart and creative spirit. :o) The papers are so stunning that I cannot choose a favorite! :o) I also adore the textural elements on each. The charm and burlap make for an exquisite combination. :o) Gosh. These are just so pretty and I know they'll be far more loved even than the happy gift cards! (Mm... Starbucks...) Magnificent as always, my talented friend! I hope your 12/12 was magical and that your Thursday is filled with love and unexpected surprises. :o)

Hugs and blessings!

Beate said...
