Leftover Christmas goodie........

I almost forgot to post this; but here it is!
We had a pretty busy Christmas this year. 3 family dinners. Boxing Day (that's the 26th for my american friends) was fast approaching and I needed cards for bf's mom & dad; and for his sister's family of 5!
I was tired, and just totally out of creative ideas, but I needed to do something! So, I decided instead of creating traditional cards for each person, I'd give away chocolate! That way, the lack of a true card would be overlooked. I decided on one for each family. 2. A number I could handle.

These pockets are so easy to do up; so that's just what I did. I rummaged through my stash of papers and pulled out two sheets of SU! DSP in a Christmassy theme and did a simple diaper fold I Loaded them up with chocolate, candy canes and a couple of dollar scratch and wins.

They did the trick! They were recieved with bold big eyes and oohs and aahs... as much for the creativity as the chocolate -but more so for the chance to win millions!!!! (er, well.... hundreds...)

DSP, CS, ribbon, embellies - all SU! (except red rhinestones)
Tools; snowflake border punch from Martha Stewart

All supplies used are SU, except the MERRY stamp (thankd Mary!) and the giant red flower (thanks Judy!) - and a little gold stickles for dots around the word "Merry".

If you've never tried this fold before, you really should. All it takes is a sheet of 12x12 double sided DSP and you're off to the races!

Oh la lah - chocolate'! I can't believe you got all of that into one diaper pouch, lol! You are a master! These are just darling - in your paper choice and awesome embellies ..... (mine are usually all wonky, rofl!) Great job, Kare!

I saw this in the thumbnail picture, and completely lost track of what I was doing, because there was chocolate involved here!! These are great, and I be your recipients were indeed thrilled with the special thought and love that went in to your gift!! Thanks for sharing!!
