A Stepped Up DIY Frosty Gift Card Holder with Secret Sparkly Snow
Another Mini Christmas Lantern

An easy Christmas lantern

Today we're creating An Easy Christmas Lantern. It's created with the new Mini Curvy Keepsake die..its super easy...since the box is created with a single die..it just folds together--with no glue. Acetate further away

Using the new Mercury Acetate sheets--there are natural "window' openings in the mercury to let the battery-operated tea lights to shine through the clear spaces.  Just adding a lovely curly red ribbon and a bit of holly---your lantern is ready for giving. Acetate further away

Wouldn't this be a lovely place card at your holiday gathering? Just add a tag with the seating name and your guests can take it home and add it to their Christmas tree as a wonderful keepsake from your event.

Create several of these lanterns and place them all over your tree as an sweet way to light up your tree.

Or simply add this little keepsake to your hand-delivered card or gift.. it would be a super addition to a gift card. I always like to give a small gift along with the gift card.
