Today I want to share with you a Hand-made, gift Holder for my "H" card at the 30 Days of Holidays at Beccy's Place. With a big "Ho Ho Ho" ringing in my head, I decided I wanted to do something with a Santa theme but without actually showing a Santa; only doing something which would make the viewer think of Santa.
My daughter has her own business as a Color Street stylist. If you're not familiar with Color Street, it's "dry" nail polish which is easily put onto your nails by applying nail polish strips. They come in a package and you'll see one of them in one of the photos I'm posting. At Christmas time, she gives sets to those of us who want them as our gifts, and she also has many people who buy the packaged sets as gifts for people on their lists. She asked me if I could make gift holders in a size suitable for holding the Color Street packets.
Of course, I jumped right in and started designing something. I measured the Color Street packet, then scored and folded red CS so that it was 3/8 inch larger in width, and 1/2 an inch longer. I sealed the holder by using double stick tape on the bottom and along a narrow flap I made on one side. The dies are from Sue Wilson and I cut 4 different kinds of buckles to use. I cut only scraps for the belts and buckles. I made a dozen of these; some have the sentiment and some are just the belt and buckle. I'm sure she's going to want more of them. Here's the result of my labors:
