JAI 196 Just add your Christmas projects

Hello there,
well it won't be long now till Christmas will be upon us - just five sleeps to go! So I'm pretty sure most of us are working to finish off Christmas projects intended as gifts to family, friends and co-workers. So that's what we want you to add this week at Just Add Ink - Just add your Christmas projects. And because we know how crazy busy life is at the moment we are running this challenge for two weeks. 

We have a bunch of teenage nieces and nephews in the family and my go to Christmas present for them for the last few years is a gift card that lets them choose what they like and I just make sure the packaging is something to let them know they are special. Here's how they got packaged up this year.

And a couple of close ups of the two different colour variations.

Many months back a tutorial by Tanya Bell for a gift card holder popped up on my Pinterest feed. I went and had a look and discovered a fab and very easy way to make a great gift card holder using the Pop n Cuts die. Of course you can embellishment them for any occasion - in this case Christmas!

So when you do get a chance to take a breath before or after Christmas do join in and show us what you have been up to. If you want some last minute inspiration check out the rest of the JAI DT right now!

Thanks for visiting and a Merry Christmas to you and all your families. Not quite sure what my blogging schedule is going to be like over the next couple of weeks - I might be back I might not - so take care, have fun and take some time to relax!
