Handmade-holidays-banner

We are so excited to participate in the 6th Annual Handmade Holidays Blog Hop! Today, you will experience great ideas from so many incredible companies and designers. It will be such a fun day to hop along! Today, Sandy Trefger and many other designers are sharing gift ideas. Let's take a look at Sandy's awesome gift idea:

  Card Folio Gift Set, Ladies Diary, Tutorial by Sandy Trefger, Product by Graphic 45, Product by Clearsnap, Photo 001

"A card folio gift set makes a wonderful holiday gift for those who love to send cards throughout the year.  This folio holds up to six cards and envelopes, and is decorated with the lovely, vintage Graphic 45 Ladies Diary collection.  All six cards match the folio with assorted sentiments stamped in coordinating Graphic 45 Decades Ink by ClearSnap.  Once the folio is empty, the recipient may fill it with extra cards or use it to hold photos or a note pad.  This folio is easy to make and can be done in an afternoon or evening.  The cards may take longer, depending on how decorative you like to make them. Happy Crafting!" ~ Sandy

Tip:

If you create cards that are flatter (no thick embellishments or flowers, etc.) you may be able to tuck up to eight cards in to the folio.  Definitely make a few extra cards to match the set and give those to the recipient even if those extra cards do not fit in the folio.  This way there will be a few extra as cards are mailed out.  Use a different sentiment stamp on each card so they can be used for different occasions and make sure that some are all occasion such as “always on my mind” or “just because”.
