Simon Says Stamp Petal Envelope die
If you don’t have this Petal Envelope die, I highly recommend adding this to your crafty stash – I use mine all the time! One of my favorite ways to use this die is to make easy packaging for gift cards. Gift cards are one of the most popular gifts to give during the holidays, and what better way to give one than to place it in a handmade envelope?! Once you’ve decorated the envelope, you can simply tuck the flaps into each other and wrap it all up with a pretty bow!
Simon Says Stamp Schoolhouse Red Envelopes
Once you have created those gorgeous, Holiday cards you will need to put them in an envelope! You can never go wrong with our classic, Schoolhouse Red envelopes; featuring that rich red tone, these beauties can be left plain, or you can add some pretty decoration to them in the form of stamping, stenciling or even foiling!
Simon Says Stamp Snowflake Tag Die
Finally, we cannot forget those presents underneath the tree! Often, tags for the gifts are one of the last things we think about making and to make it easy on ourselves, we like to go the more simpler route and find a tag die that does all the hard work for us! ;) Our Simon exclusive, Snowflake Tag die is one of those perfect tag sets that doesn’t need much to look gorgeous. Cut the tag from some pretty papers, tie on a pretty bow or length of twine and just write on the backside… voila! You could make multiples in minutes!
I hope this month’s edition of Did You Know was inspiring and helpful as you plan and prep for your Holiday crafting this season! Thanks for stopping by and spending some time with me today!
