We had our annual Nacho Average Christmas Party on Friday! We had dinner and drinks at BJ's, and did a fun gift exchange!! Here are two little gifts I made for the ladies:
I absolutely love these little pizza boxes -- they make GREAT quick & easy gifts! I filled these with Hershey Kisses!
Hope you're all enjoying the holiday season! It tends to get crazy, busy, etc -- don't forget to take time and remember the reason for the season! And, slow down and enjoy your loved ones!! Big thanks to the ladies in my group -- not sure what I'd do without you and your wonderful friendship!!!
Last night some of my team members met for a Christmas dinner at a local restaurant, Cervantes. We always have so much fun! This year was really special for me -- I haven't been able to have monthly meetings like I used to, and I've really missed seeing these ladies. So, we've renewed our commitment to meeting once a month, even if it's just for dinner! :-)
Here are the gifts I made for the girls:
Gift bags had hand lotion, hand sanitizer and lip balm:
and, this is just a simple wrapped candy bar -- but I love how festive it looks!
We also do a swap each year, and this was my card!
Have a great day!!! Merry Christmas!
What a fun class!!! Here is one of the gift card holders we made:
This uses our kraft bags -- just fold one in half, add the belly band, and you've got a simple gift card holder!! So cute!!
Welcome to another fun challenge from the Nachos!! This week, we have a pretty color combo for you:
I chose the gorgeous designer paper from the Season of Cheer collection for this fun money holder:
This will be one of the projects we're making at my Gift Cards Galore Class on Saturday! There's still a couple of spots available, if you'd like to join me!
Good morning! The ladies over at the Nacho Average Challenge Blog have an interesting sketch for you:
I wasn't really sure what to do with this at first! I really struggled, but love what finally came out of it all!
It's a Gift Card Holder!!! That's all I can tell you for now! It's going to be one of the projects we made at my GIFT CARDS GALORE CLASS on Saturday, December 5th. I'm really excited -- would love to have you join me!!
Good morning, and welcome to another fun challenge from the What Will You Stamp Blog! This week's stamp set is Sweet Hauntings!
I decided to make a gift card holder! This would be a fun project for your kids, a co-worker, etc!
I used our Kraft Tag-a-Bag gift bags, and simply folded in half! It creates two pockets -- one for the gift card and one for you to write a sentiment:
Wow! Am I behind!! Every year, my group, the Nacho Average Stampers, has a Christmas party. We have dinner, exchange cards and do a fun gift exchange! Here is the perpetual calendar I made for my gift:
Sorry for the poor pic quality -- tried taking it in my stamp room, without good lighting. I started with chipboard, and covered that with designer paper -- from the Brights Stack and the Back to Black pack. I stamped the calendar pages using the Flower Patch stamp set. Colors are Strawberry Slush, Bermuda Bay and Basic Black!
