"I wondered if I challenged myself to create as many projects as I could with only the December Flourish page and the coordinating Cut-Aparts page plus two sheets of cardstock, how much could I make? The only other items I used were ribbon and baker’s twine. I was able to create two gift card holders, four tags, two 4 ½” x 4 ½” cards and two 4” x 6” cards. What a fun afternoon I had creating these! My Snapguide tutorial shows you all the measurements and instructions for everything I made here." ~Annette
