Quick & Easy Hostess Gift

Year of Cheer Hostess GIftSimple.  Quick.  Easy.  These are the words we like to hear this time of year!  You’re heading to yet another holiday party and you forgot to pick up a hostess gift.  What are you going to do?  Well, you’re heading to your craft room of course!

This happened to me last weekend.  Yikes!  What can I make in a hurry so we won’t be too late to the party?  Well, it’s the gorgeous Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper to the rescue along with the Acetate Card Boxes!  Add some shiny Gold Foil Sheets and Thick Whisper White cardstock, some retired ribbon and a tag.  You’re done!

I made 5 cards exactly the same.  I cut a piece of designer paper 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ and layered it on a 5″ x 3 3/4″ piece of Gold Foil Sheet then adhered both to the front of a Thick Whisper White card.  That was it!  The designer paper is so gorgeous I didn’t need anything else for the cards.

I put the cards in my acetate box (love these!) and wrapped a piece of ribbon around it and tied a bow.  My gift was done!  I love it when a plan comes together!  🙂

The Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper is retiring so get it while you can!  Stampin’ Up! does carry ribbons currently that I could have used but since I didn’t take the time to decorate the box I wanted a wider ribbon.

Enjoy this last week of holiday parties and be safe!  Have a great day.  Take care and Happy Stamping!
