Handy Last Minute Christmas Gift

 Need a last minute teacher or co-worker gift? Or just something to have on hand for those unexpected Christmastime visitors? These adorable emery board sleeves are a breeze to create and everyone loves receiving them!



To begin I started with various double-sided patterned paper strips that measured 1.25" X 12".  Before scoring, think about how the print will be facing when the bottom flap is turned up.  Next I scored each of the short sides approximately 1/8" from the edge.  Depending on the width of your emery board, you may need to may adjustments; I always create a template first before cutting "good" paper LOL!
Next I turned the paper and scored at 7 3/8" and 7.5" and then folded along all of the score lines.  The shortest end will be the part that flips up to make the front cover.

Once the bottom flap was folded up, I used it as a guide to trim away the excess side pieces for the back (see above).  Finally, all of the sides were assembled as you would create a box...this is where 1/8" tape comes in handy!

Finally I stamped, colored and cut images from the Doodle Stamp Sets and layered them onto die-cut circles and scalloped shapes.  A few "sprinkles" and ribbon and they're ready for gifting!



I wanted something cute to deliver my gifts in, so I whipped up this quick little clear bag using a dollar store envelope file that I cut in half.  I machine-stitched around the perimeter, crafted a quick tag and then attached a couple of paper handles with brads!  Now I'm ready to HO HO HO :)

Thank you for joining me today!
