Here are some gift ideas...

Altered Stocking Holder:

I moved end of the last month and I'm still unpacking...while separating Christmas decorations, I "found" this plain gold stocking holder. 
I used past Collections' papers - Moroccan Spice and Crewel & Unusual - tore and adhered them on the tree, using Mod Podge. I also applied Mod Podge on top to seal the paper.
Then, I added some embellishments from Moroccan Spice, like the medallion and sequins, to decorate my tree!

CD Holder - using Woven Strands Collection:

If you love taking pictures (like me), you could burn them into a CD and add a pretty's the how-to:

1. Trim a printed paper to size 6.5" x 11". Using a scoring board, score it at 2.5" and 7.5". Rotate it 90 degrees and score it at 0.75" and 5.75". The CD will be in a 5" x 5" pocket:

2. Cut the 4 corners off, along the score lines. I also like to trim the flaps at an angle:

3. Use adhesive to assemble the CD Holder, but before you close the second flap...

4. Decorate the front of the CD Holder! I trimmed a printed paper to 4.5" x 4.5" and added a ribbon/bow. I chose Woven Strands Collection because of the greens! You could add some stamping or tags, and decorate it more, if desired! =)

Here's the back:

5. Put the CD in and close the flap!

1. Simon Says Mon Treat Bag/Box (it's kinda flat box, right?)

Hope you enjoyed your stay and don't forget to go to Cheryl's Blog next!
