Each Designer Paper is packaged individually, and labeled by name, with the item number and the coordinating colors.  It’s a labor of love!

Once I order the papers, I wait for all of them to arrive to me, then prepare the papers –  cut, label, and bag them.  I will do this as quickly as I can, and then the paper will be ready for either local pick up or shipping!

Tidings of Christmas – Gift Card Pocket & Cocoa Gift Bag

Laura Milligan Cocoa Gift Bag and Gift Card Pocket Holder Facebook Live Creations July 26 2021

In my weekly Facebook Live yesterday, I shared two cute and very simple ways to package hot cocoa, and a gift card.  First was a Hot Cocoa packet, complete with a candy cane and a bit of chocolate.

This project’s base is a 6″ x 12″ piece of Designer Series Paper –  folded up about 5″, leaving a bit of the inside DSP showing.   I used Tear and Tape to adhere the sides, and created a tag with the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and coordinating Pine punch.

I used a tag die (love these!) and added a bit of a sneak peek with the Real Red Ruffled Ribbon coming in our new Mini that begins on August 3.

My second project uses one of our In Color 2021-2023 Ombre’ Gift bags.  Simply fold up the bag  -this creates 2 pockets.

I wrapped the bag with the Evening Evergreen Chevron Ribbon and again used a tag die as a the focal point of my bag.

My stamped words are from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set.  I used the Pine punch with the Tidings of Christmas 6 x 6 DSP to create the sweet tree.

The front pocket of the card holds a little card from your personal message.  This consists of a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock measuring 4 1/4″ x 3 1/2″, a panel of Basic White measuring 4″ x 3 1/4″.  I added a 1″ x 4″ piece of DSP, a cherry cobbler sprig cropped from the Christmas Trimmings dies, and a bow (Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack).

LAURA MILLIGAN Christmas In July Event Tutorials Only

My Christmas in July was a super fun day of stamping and crafting!  This class consisted of “giftables” – projects you can gift to friends and family (or keep for yourself!) for the upcoming holidays, as well as four cards.  My Christmas in July event featured the Tidings & Trimmings Bundle from our 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.   I offered the class both in person and “to go”.   I’ve had some requests for a PDF-only option – and am happy to offer it starting today!
