First, I just want to say how much I’m enjoying reading all your fun gift ideas!
If y’all haven’t read them? You should!

So our party is still goin’ on!


Did you see the darling bottle tag that Corri made over on Lori’s site yesterday? So fun!
‘Round these parts we might put that on a bottle of Sprite too. ;)


So now, let’s see what we’ve got goin’ on from . . .


I saw many-a Starbucks gift cards as your Last Minute Gift idea.

Hello? Can we say perfect?

[ Shapes | This+That Winter (snowflakes). From Lori | Box with Bracket Flap (SVGs on Lori’s site. Also in Silhouette store.) ]

Here’s what Laura has to say:

I often make little cards, or envelopes, for giving out gift cards. I didn’t set out to create this fun box, for holding a gift card. But it turned out, that the size I chose to cut my box in was quite a bit smaller than I realized, once I assembled the box. It turned out to be the perfect little size for a gift card. I used a few snowflakes from Kerri’s This & That Winter: Shapes Only kit, and adhered them to the front of the box using glitter brads.


Hmmm . . . what else did Laura make?

Well how fun is this? Little boxes to hold photos to send to grandpa and grandma!
 What a great idea!


[ Shapes | Life Additions + Modern Nature. From Lori | Photo Box (SVGs on Lori’s site. Also in Silhouette store.) ]

Here’s what Laura has to say:

When I saw Lori’s Photo Box, I knew I wanted to create a few, for sharing photos with family over the holidays. I have family members that we only see a few times a year, and Christmas is always one of those times. I tend to save up photos of our family, and my girls, and hand them out when we see everyone. I think it’ll be so much cooler to hand them out in such adorable little boxes. And the recipients can easily keep them in the box, until they’re ready to find a home for them. I embellished the front of the box, with a loopy frame from Kerri’s Life Additions #1 kit, and some pretty flowers from her Modern Nature kit.


And for the guys in your life? How’s about these!


[ Shapes | The Ol’ Ballgame. From Lori | Bracket Closure Box (SVGs on Lori’s site. Also in Silhouette store.) ]

Seriously. How cool would those be to take to a family or work party?

Here’s what Laura has to say:

With several golfers in my family, golf balls are a very popular gift of choice around here at Christmas time. There are usually a few boxes under the Christmas tree, or tucked in stockings. Instead of the leaving them in their original boxes, I thought it would be fun to create a more unique box to hold them in. Lori’s Bracket Closure Box was the perfect shape for it. When I adjusted the size of the box to fit the width of the golf balls, the box ended up being just long enough to hold four golf balls. I also cut the “Play Hard” title from Kerri’s The Ol’ Ballgame kit. I love the grungy look to it.


Such great fun Laura! Thanks so much for sharing those amazing ideas!
