Quick and Easy Last Minute Gifts with D2BA

December 14, 2018 0 Comments

Hello, Friends!  It’s Melody from Handmade Card Happiness and Instagram!
Christmas is only eleven days away!  It’s time to finish up my last minute gift items, and I need them to be quick and easy!!!

My nieces and nephews always like cash or gift cards.  The Mailbox Gift Card Holder Die with coordinating stamp set is the perfect size for cash or gift cards!

After die cutting some beautiful paper from D2BA’s Holiday Bouquet Paper Pack, I stamped the mailbox front from the You’ve Got Mail Stamp Set and added a sentiment from the Poinsettia Tangle Stamp Set.

The Mailbox Gift Holder Die Set has many wonderful pieces which allow you to make fabulous cards with lots of extras!  Although I didn’t add my gift card holders to a card, they do fit perfectly as you can see from a prior project shown below.

Check out all the possibilities for creating gift card holders for any occasion with all the stamps in the You’ve Got Mail Stamp Set!

That takes care of my younger relatives, but what about those adult hostess gifts that we need for holiday parties?  I think a fast wine tag made with some D2BA dies and a small stamp will be exactly what I need!

I began by die cutting some card stock and paper from the Holiday Bouquet Paper Pack with the Rectangle Framelits Dies.  After adhering the dies together, I die cut a circle near the top with the Circle Framelits.  Next I cut the cheers layers from card stock using the dies from the Cheers Tag Die Set.  After stamping and die cutting the holly, I adhered all of the pieces to the front of the rectangle framelits layers.  I scored across the tag and punched a hole in the center on the score line.  I threaded some ribbon through the hole and slid the tag onto the wine bottle.  I think the ribbon added a nice touch!

I hope these ideas will help you with some quick, last minute gifts!

Happy holidays!
