Happy Holidays Flower Pocket and Gift Card Set along with a WINNER!!!!

December 4th and started my Christmas preparation!  Today is the last day to enter the Xyron is all about CARDS Xyron Hashtag Challenge on Instagram!!!  If you are unfamiliar with a Hashtag Challenge, its basically where a ‘’challenge’’ is announced each week, and you guys use the #hollyjollyxyron to share your projects that go with that challenge Then, once the challenge week is up, the Xyron Design Team will pick a winner of the challenge and that person will be featured on all of our Instagram pages AND will win a Xyron Creative Station! So join us on Xyron to do the #hollyjollycards Challenge.  Load those cards up and follow along with the Xyron and the team!

How can I go wrong with creating an easy Happy Holiday Flower Packet with gift card using the Sizzix Flower Packet Die. Pick out some beautiful pattern paper and matching journal pieces to work along side your Sizzix Flower Packet Die and Flowers. 

Cut the he Flower Packet Box out from mat board and pattern paper, ink edges using Colorbox Nutmeg Blend. Adhere to box. Add pattern paper to top of flower pocket using Xyron Creative Station.  Add journal piece to inside of box.

Make a card that will fit inside of prepared box using Kraft Paper; adhere pattern paper to top of card with Xyron Mega Runner.

Adhere pattern paper to the front of card front; wrap twine around the card. Add a journal block that has been inked to the front of the card with pop dots. Add some fussy cut flourishes from pattern paper along with a Kraft flower.

Create a pocket inside of card using Xyron Mega Runner on three sides of paper to form pocket. Add small journal block to the top. Place gift card inside.

Place gift card inside of prepared Flower Packet.

Decorate front of Flower Box to coordinate with gift card with twine bow, flowers and fussy cut images from pattern paper. Finish by adding a small enamel dot to corner of box. I hope you are inspired to create some fun and unique gift card ideas this Christmas Season.
