I love covering these little shaker boxes. I prefer ribbon, but paper works just as well.
I saw the idea a few years ago in “Living” and have made them ever since.
Sometimes I fill them with homemade treats for teacher’s gifts or give them as tree ornaments.
Thought I’d make a few with some non- traditional x-mas colors and a more masculine bent for the craft fair.
I also like to color and decorate the insides with paper and ribbon.
Some of the first cards I ever made where these little gift tags.
I think the little penguins might be old Debbie Mum stickers…I’ve had them for a long time.
I just added ribbon and mittens from a package of “Dress it up” holiday buttons.
Recently, I’ve taken to drawing my own creations in MS Word Art.
This was drawn using the freeform line art in MS Word. I just added some flowers I punched out of cardstock.

One day I might like to try and turn these drawings into rubber stamps.
Another card I made using another one of my own freeform creations drawn and colored in Word Art.
