Holiday Open House



I am having a Holiday Open House at my house tomorrow. Anyone who RSVP'd by Monday is getting these little baskets filled with chocolate. I got the idea for these from Britta's blog.

My guests will be making this gift card holder. I don't know who to credit the holders to. I've seen them on several blogs. I'm going to link you to my friend Paris' blog for a tutorial on them: gift card tutorial I thought it would be fun to make a unique gift card holder for the make-n-take since everyone gives gift cards these days. It's the ONLY thing I can give my young adult nieces and nephews.

I'll try to remember to take pics of my open house set up tomorrow. Usually I do these shindigs in my spacious finished basement but right now it looks like my craft room exploded all over it! My husband installed new wood laminate flooring in my craft room so I had to empty everything out. I'm going to set up everything on my main level since my basement is "occupied".

Bye for now!

Ouuu! great projects. I've been trying to think of what to do with that wrapping paper; those baskets would be great for bags of cookies to nest in--Thanks for sharing them, :0) Mel
