November Demonstrator Swap

Today I wanted to share with you the swaps from our November Demonstrator swap. This month my mom challenged us with creating a gift card holder using 3 different types of decor (such as stamps, ribbon, punches, glitter, buttons, etc). Here is what we came up with! (Note: the dimensions for the gift card holder are at the bottom of the post.)

First, here is mine. I used the Dasher stamp set and one of the snowflake stamps from the Delightful Decorations stamp set. The Merry Christmas is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set.

Next, here is Kim's. She created some "shimmer spray" using our new shimmer paint to create her own shimmer paper! This really sparkles in real life!

Next here is Lenore's. I love the colors of this one and how she added the silver elastic cord to the ornament.

Here is Nicole's. This was her first swap with us since joining our group about a month ago. I think she did a great job! I love how she added the scallop border to her band!

And last, but not least, here is my mom's . I am partial to this one because snowmen are my favorite! I also love how she added all the glitter. This is super sparkly in real life!

I haven't received Merrigrace's swap yet, but will post it when I get it. I am excited to see what she came up with!

Cut a piece of card stock 4" x 7-7/8", scoring and folding horizontally at 2-3/8" and 5-1/8". Then create a belly band 7-1/4", scoring and folding at 2-1/2" and 5-1/4". Belly band slides on to hold the card closed.


  1. Oh, WOW! All of these are cute! I love how you used the brad for the nose. I'm going to just have to get that stamp!

  2. all just wonderful, what great ideas.
