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!

Once again I am very excited to be participating in the "SEASONS GIVINGS BLOG HOP" Each blog that you visit along the way will offer a unique giveaway, so don't miss a single stop and invite your friends to hop along too!
♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
