The holiday season is a time of gifts! What's better than a handmade gift? Today, we have glorious gift ideas from Katelyn Grosart and Magda Cortez. You will love their great idea! First, let's see Katelyn's gorgeous set of gift card holders:

Gift Card Holders, St. Nicholas, By Katelyn Grosart, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 13

"Using the ATC Policy Envelopes in Black I was able to create a fun set of gift cardholders. To decorate the outside of the Policy Envelopes I used leftover pieces from creating a Christmas Card. For the inside piece that holds the gift card, use a piece of black cardstock as well as a piece of patterned paper that coordinates with the outside of the gift cardholder from the St. Nicholas collection.' ~Katelyn

Christmas Mason Jar Gift, St. Nicholas, By Magda Cortez, Product By Graphic 45, Photo 04 of 05, Project with Tutorial

"Hello All..!!! Are you ready for Christmas? Today I have a super easy project and you will love it! We all need last minute gifts or maybe give just a detail to somebody.. well let me tell you this is the perfect gift for that special person.. You can use this mason jar as a gift card holder o money holder! YES!! It has a secret compartment inside .. I love the idea.. We just need a toilet paper roll or you can make the tube with paper for a Gift Card, Gifts cards need bigger mason jars.. This is small and the gift card didn’t fit inside the toilet paper..  I hope you like the idea.. I made a snapguide with all the steps!

Happy Holidays * Merry Christmas"

A Graphic 45 Holiday Card, Gift, & More!

  Graphic 45 St Nicholas Merry Christmas Card and Blessing Boxes - Petaloo and Xyron - Tutorial - Pam Bray - Photo 7_2092

We have more glorious holiday ideas today on the blog! We are also loving seeing your holiday ideas over on Facebook. So much inspiration! Today, Pam Bray and Nico Scrap share fabulous gifts with us! Take a look at Pam's card and gift box set:

Graphic 45 St Nicholas Merry Christmas Card and Blessing Boxes - Petaloo and Xyron - Tutorial - Pam Bray - Photo 7_2092

“Each year we give each of our family members a special ornament at Thanksgiving dinner. Each ornament has a small memory of what they experienced in that year; ie like two of our grandchildren became part of a swim team. This is a keepsake for each of them and allows them to have a fabulous time as they decorate their trees going through each of their special ornaments.” Pam

Tip: Distressing paper is a quick way to give paper an easy vintage feel to go with the decorative look of the designer papers.

Tip: Small “blessing” boxes create a unique way to give those around you a small trinket, a special verse, a piece of jewelry or just about anything to let them know they are a “blessing” in you life.
