Tutti Designs - Fun Gift Idea

Hello, my friends!

I'm here with a new Tutti Designs DT share!

This week I am using the beautiful "Holiday Spirit Tree"
that you can find right HERE.

I've come up with a project that would make a lovely gift.

I began by making a small gift bag out of cardstock.
I adhered the die-cut to the front of it,
and added a few of the cut out snowflakes.


Then I went on to make four cards to go into the gift bag.
I cut 4 each of an A2 card front, and the tree dies.


I adhered the tree to the center of the card front.


Then I ran it through the an embossing folder.
Any small, all-over design, will work beautifully.


The embossing always stretches the paper out a bit.
After embossing, I trimmed it down just a touch,
so that the A2 Card base framed it.
Then I adhered it to the card base.



I bundled the four cards together with four envelopes, 
and tied a ribbon around them.
They fit perfectly into the gift bag! :o)


Other Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock;
Embossing Folder: Stampin' Up - 
Punch: Fiskars Border Punch;
Ribbon: Offray.
