Snowflake Gift Holders to Mail

Yes, I still have gifts to mail....gosh, where did the days go?   First, I decided that my small thinking-of-you gifts would have to be lightweight, flat, and mailable.  I finished the gifts (can't show them to you because I want to surprise some of you who read this blog) and then had to decide what kind of matching card I should make. Because of the time crunch I had the brilliant idea to combine the card and gift package together.  The snowflake gift holder made using the Sizzix CD holder die turned out to be super easy and effectively serves as both card and gift package.  By die cutting the CD holder (no I'm not sending out a CD) out of assorted snowflake double-sided printed cardstock, everything was simplified and there wasn't much else to do but attach the snowflakes ( big ones cut from felt snowflake ribbon and glittered, and small ones made using a MS punch). Simple and done!  Next I need to figure out some party favor packaging.  Hope your holiday season is jolly and not too stressful.
