Caardvarks Holiday Blog Hop :: Day 2










Happy Monday to each of you! First, I'd like to thank each one of you who stopped by the Blog yesterday and congratulated me on my new Caardvarks venture! I appreciate all of your comments, kinds words, and support. Today, I am back for Day 2 of the Blog Hop! We all are sharing holiday packaging using Creative Cuts & More die cuts. I got to create a little gift box. It was super easy to assemble and Creative Cuts and More provided instructions on their site (when I got stumped)! I also used the chipboard label die cut and glittered it out!

There are countless of ideas to use this die cut gift box, from a table setting feature, double it up as a place card, a gift card holder, an actual gift box, and many more! You can keep it simple by tying a ribbon around it in a bow or deck it out with lots of embellishments. It's all up to you, but the die is ready to go, which makes the holidays a lot easier to personalize and make it fun without being too time consuming. You can do it!

Thanks for hopping by, join the remaining hoppers. Here are some links:
